    as you already know.. It definitely seems like a Google dance. I would spend extra time on this site, adding fresh content, links etc.

    It will probably take some time for you to get your rankings back after being hacked, but it is possible. It hasn't happened to me yet personally *knock on wood* but I have seen others on this forum run into the same issue's and managed to get them back.

    best of luck!~

    Most likely the hacker altering some onsite staff like urls can cause this.If all those mishaps caused your site some downtime it might also be the reason,in this case the rankings should improve within a day or two.

    In scenarios like this It's typical that Google also needs to re crawl your site

    One thing I would recommend you can do is go to your webmaster tools and have Googlebot fetch your website URL's. Then resubmit your pages to Google by using your websites sitemap.

    This should help give Google a kick to re crawl and re index your whole site. If you were ranking well before. I see no reason for Google not to give you your rankings back since it was just a post made by someone if I understand correctly.

    There was no downtime and it has been 7 days since the hacker attacked

    It's definitely the google dance.

    But, as long as you get your website back to normal, you should see the rankings come back. This has happen to people before.

    Do you have the website backup then restore that backup and check the rankings after 1 0r 2 days.
