    one of my tester sites got trashed the other day.

    Not even mad. It's nice to test/experiment and see what the limits are.

    Besides, I think it looks cool. Maybe I can use it to try and sell to local businesses, "Don't choose XXX Company, they'll do this to your rankings-"

    Do another test for us, 301 it to a new domain and see if it picks up the rankings.

    I think I seen mickyfu mentioned this in one of his post, would be nice if you could test it :)

    Good idea. Maybe I'll deindex the site, throw up the content on another sites, and 301.

    But for this next test, should I get an aged domain or a fresh one? I'm thinking fresh one, but I'll wait til the site is deindexed to make up my mind.

    Hahaha "D-Slapped" made me laugh, anyways, what exactly were you 'testing' that made this kind of drop?

    I was seeing how many keywords I could rank for on a homepage that had like 500 words on it.
    So I started spamming links with the anchor of the keywords I wanted to try and rank for.
    Was tracking over 70 keywords, and basically all the keywords that weren't really on the page took a nose-dive.
    check out my sick anchor profile:

    I would highly appreciate a case study/test using this technique. :)

    Noob here, but was it a manual or algorithmic penalty
    I guess algorithmic since you mentioned deindexing it yourself.

    Hi,
    I agree, you should give it a try and 301 redirect it to a fresh new domain, but i think this is a hit and miss kind of thing.

    Last year i had a one page site .co.uk in a similar "payday loans" niche and got nº1 position for 3 keywords (about 12.000 m/s total of the 3kws) for only 12 days when all keywords took a dive. I decided to 301 this domain to a new exact one but this time with a .org.uk tld. After 2 days all 3 keywords got to nº1 and this time the rankings lasted 10 days before they yet again took a dive.
    Because i was getting between 46 to 165 usd daily i decided to take another shot and i made another redirect this time to a similar domain (for example instead of mydomain24h.org.uk the new one would be mydomain24hrs.co.uk) and yet again all 3 kws got to 1º spot, this time for more than 15days.

    Long story short, this lasted from like 02/01/14 to about 09/05/14 before it slowly ended and the redirects stopped working. The top rankings would stay from 3 to like 17days and i must have registered more then 20 domains but in those 4 months i made 7.5k.

    I really don´t know why it worked, i tried to duplicate it in the same niche, with the same backlinks, other times with different and more powerful backlinks but nothing worked.
    So this is why i say this is a it and miss kind of thing and you should test it to see if it works for you.
