    Well...with virtually no details about your site or what you've done recently...how in the world are we supposed to answer that question?

    LOL - we don't read minds bro. Give us some details - what link building have you done recently, what type of site do you have, are the articles unique or spun, etc....

    Mainly using Scrapebox.
    Wasn't abusing it really.
    Selling Merchandise.
    Only did about a few articles, and they were spun.

    Might just be a dance. Then again you being using scrapebox (I guess directly) so that could give some penalities.

    If you did more than your daily amount of backlinks / pinged alot of backlinks google may have found alot and put you on dance.

    Can you define a "dance"?
    I usually never ping any of my backlinks though, unless I manually do it.

    He said 10 pages. Still could be a dance, but I'd still be mad too if I dropped that far. :p

    I would say its a typical dance. Let it be for a couple of weeks.

    If you want better advices, give us more details.

    Still don't quite understand what a dance is.

    My domain is about two months old.
    Ive also spent about $150 on the site.
    Buying various SEO services from people ; directories, edu/gov, articles, etc.

    It literally went back from like page two to page fifteen.

    Take careful note of the position every day. Not just "page 15", but "position #XX". If it appears to be moving around a lot, it's probably dancing.

    For me, random articles/pages start ranking (such as my disclaimer) and the random page changes daily. Never experienced a dance where my index was jumping around, I guess I'm awesome.

    EDIT: I also usually stop linkbuilding (unless I have something going every day such as DFB) so you can get a firm read.

    yeah man - I feel your pain - I had just a simple small site drop from position 3/4 on page one to 35 on page 4 between the hours of about 8 am and 2 pm... killer... but, I guess I just have to get some fresh content and build a few more links... the competition isn't too harsh, so I am surprised I dropped that much that quick - I would have thought it would have been a slower decline??? Anyway, good luck man - remember hard work pays off - this business isn't for the weak minded (lazy pussies).

    Ya mine dropped big time today too it was weird. I had been number #2 and #3 for over a month then I did an AMR blast and today it's at number #23....Really pissing me off cuz all I can think of is the AMR blast. I have all original content and had not done any SB...Maybe it's just a dance, hopefully.

    That's interesting. I also had a blast done today and I dropped 25 ranks. But my first blast a couple days ago only pushed me up, not down. It's a bit frustrating and frightening.
