    Ok so I have a few smaller sites and one of my meh-ish ones was just getting a few hundred views a day and some decent conversions which was all find and dandy. I look at my adsense today and see a pretty good amount of views so I chalk it up to just me having a good day. Unfortunately I look at the site stats on my meh-ish site and I notice that it's got 788 yahoo image searches all for the keyword "booster seats" when "booster seats" is one of the keywords I'm not highly ranked on at all right now. I've never gotten anywhere near that on a single search term and I double checked my adsense to make sure I didn't get a crazy ton of clicks either but I got the normal amount.

    Unfortunately now my site is completely deranked on all of my keywords! I dont understand how someone can do a yahoo image search and somehow spam (??) my site with 700+ searches and have that happen??

    I have no idea what to do now or what on earth happened!!! Anyone have any ideas or advice?
