Alright, so this has never happened to me before and I wanted to know if anyone knows what's up. For the past 20 days or so I have been #1 for main keyword, #2 and #2 for sub keywords. As of Friday, my site got penalized. I bought a bunch of different services so I couldn't pinpoint it. Basically I got around 200 article BLs, 20 or so .gov/.edu links, and a 2.0 linking package. But the weird thing - http://site.com/randomarticle.html is now ranking for my main keyword instead of http://site.com. I've experienced the dance obviously, but this obscure article has moved very little in ranking. It's consistant on the 9th page. It has moved maybe 3 spots, and the article has changed from /randomarticle1.html to /randomarticle2.html. I've done almost no link building to those articles - a few SB comments at most! Probably 100 - 200x as many links to the homepage. Also: My properties are outranking it. Squidoo, Ezine, Hubpages, Webs, and 2 others. All of them have d0follow links pointing to the money site with the main keyword as anchor text. The majority of links are these manually built properties, a lot of article BLs, a lot of spam SB comments, and a few profile links. Right now I'm scared to touch it... it's been a pretty good money maker for me. Anyone ever experienced this? If so, what did you do to get the main page back up in the SERPs?
