    Hi all,

    Would appreciate a bit of help. Was just beefing up one of my 6year old domains with some autoblogging and SEO. It was averaging 100 UV/day on autopilot. It has 0 ads and revenue. I was going to put some affiliate banners on there for related services. I installed wprobot and did 2x senuke blasts and it began averaging 450 per day for about 2 weeks. I then got greedy and did some very heavy senuking for the 4 main keyphrases that 90% of the google traffic was appearing from. I now get about 4UV/day from google.

    The site still shows up if you type the keywords from the domain name directly, and does appear really far down page 10 for a few other random key phrases, but the rest has completely disappeared. I know my senuking like that was stupid.. I was going on the principle that nothing bad could happen otherwise you could just do the same to competitors sites. I was wrong. Will the site reappear as it does not seem to have been 'banned'?

    Any advice welcome :)

    My 2 cents is that you got Panda-lized...

    I speak from experience doing almost the exact same thing.

    EDIT: Seeing as I just realized I left a vague answer I feel compelled to add to my comment. What you described is what I have seen happen to my personal sites as well as my clients. The way to get out of Panda is to get rid of all duplicate content and start providing unique, original content. Unfortunately, I don't know of any other way to get around it...

    You mention that you are using WPRobot, can you elaborate about which functionality you were using?

    Chances are that is the reason for your penalty. Remember Google is doing all they can to hurt scraper sites and sites padded with duplicate content of some form. WPRobot, again depending on settings, is likely the reason why you were harmed.

    I wouldn't worry about the linkbuilding all that much though, while that could be the reason for your Google dance my guts telling me its the content issue.

    Hi, I'm using WPRobot, making a post every hour from my list of 20 seed keyphrases, from a diverse list of sources, and running it through thebestspinner also.
