    Hey there,
    I'm promoting my website for a month now.
    A week ago everything was great, I had 300 Backlinks and was on Page 2 for a very competitive phrase. Now my main site got slapped around and is #200 (>1000 Backlinks) - but that's not the problem.

    My problem is, what should I do now? Continue backlinking.
    But how? Only a few backlinks with high authority?
    Mass spamming with scrapebox?

    When I check a competitor, most of them have only about 200 backlinks, but these are trusted and high pr. What a tactic would you use now?

    Thanks,
    cable

    Yes
    Maybe it's just google dance.
    You should keep working on your backlinking, but don't over do it.
    Stay steady and low, to not look too spammy.
    Also add some quality content into your site, that also helps.

    Just keep on building links constantly, you´ll be fine again but it needs some time...

    I got exactly the same problem, but I think it's better to continue building backlinks with scr*apebox & co.

    The positive side is, that I rank for my main keyword on the 2nd place on Yahoo (of 2 million results) right behind Wikipedia.

    Anyway, I hope that my site will come back on Google even stronger.:cool:

    I've had the same happen to me. I was building links and was moving up the SERPS fast! Experienced a slap/dance/movement in my positioning but carried on building links.

    My ranking soon came back better than ever.

    I like to think its G's way of testing you, most people get scared and stop building links. Do the opposite and convince G its all au'natural. ;-)

    Thanks - that's what I've thought.. Then I'll do a mixture between high pr links from the board and scrapebox mass backlinks.

    Thanks everybody

    This is nothing else but just the Google Dance... Keep building links and you will be fine

    build high quality backlinks instead of spammy forum links or what ever you're currently doing and it'll pull you out of the "rut"

    Hey guys..
    The problem went bigger, my main site got kicked out of the index while 2 posts (it's a blog) went to 25 and about 190.

    I bought the vilambara high authority links (smallest package) and searched with scrapebox for auto approve links. Then I pushed some of these links on to the high authority links so that they get indexed (profile links.. laaame :) )

    What should I say.. I looked now and I'm place 5 and 6 for a competitive keyword with 135k searches per month and some great companies behind.
