    There was an EMD update a few days ago. How old is your website, and what do you call natural link building ?

    how much unique content is one your site?
    the update focussed on low quality content sites.

    about 1500 unique words its not a big site... its only 2400 exacts / month , but i made 500 $ /month with that site... would really enjoy to get the ranking back.... i noticed that the landingpage wasnt static ( wordpress) so there might have been 1 duplicate article on the website...i changed to static now... i also deleted all the tags ..
    lets see if this will help ....

    could be google trying to catch you out, drop your ranking and see if you build a lot of backlinks to get it back up and then sandbox your site for unnatural linkbuilding (seriosly google does this and they have a patent for it and everything).

    maybe build some more backlinks with generic terms like "click here" "read more". it should bounce back.

    i changed to static page , deleted all the tags , deactivated some plug ins , updated to new version of wordpress, changed all the links in words to inner page linking instead of outbound links, and lowered the outbound links all in all, will see if there will be some changes in the next days
    i will also add some blog and article backlinks with generic keywords linking and naked url backlinking

    Well like everyone said there were multiple updates, the emd and a penguin refresh. Dont rule out neg SEO either. I got hit too and intially thought it might be the update, when I checked my backlink profile in majestic I found that about 2 weeks ago someone KW spammed my domain and I guess the update helped google find them all over night, I was lucky in that I only dropped from top of page 1 to the bottom, but its still a huge difference in traffic and sales.

    Hello,

    If indeed you were #1 and you got slapped that bad there are only 2 possibilities as far as i am concerned.
    1st - got penalized for unnatural link building ( considering the domain age it is likely )
    2nd - your backlinks were considered unnatural and got canceled as far as big G is considering ( be happy if this is the case)

    I suggest you keep adding content and doin seo like nothing happened for atleast 1 month and see what happens.

    If its still that bad ...just move to a new domain name ( i hear it works for most people)

    I doubt this caused your initial comeback, since you are obviously in the middle of the G dance.
    However there's no chance that on page SEO will push you from nowhere to position #1, unless it's some non-competition keyword. Because of this I assume that your site is dancing at the moment in Google, but it's pretty hard to say why Google decided to move your SERP.

    dont you think it could have been because , i had not a static page?
    here is what i think i had one article with 2 urls ! the article was on my landing page and on a http://mydomain.com/myarticlefromlandingpage
    it was exactly the same article i think google fckd me because of duplicate content on my own page, so i chenged into a static landing page .

    PS: the http://mydomain.com/myarticlefromlandingpage is ranking on page 3 in Google ...lets see what happens after the next indexing !
    What are your thoughta about this?

    So wait a minute.

    1. Is your domain an EMD?

    2. Did it come back to the first page?
