    I have a problem with one of my sites. My site is about cars and I have as anchor texts:


    Volkswagen Cars
    opel cars
    mercedes cars
    audi cars
    ferrari cars


    The problem is that was positioned on page 4 for keyword "cars", but now I am not in the top 10. I've never done any backlink to this keyword, only for the other anchor texts.

    Anyone know if this is a penalty? When using other anchor texts are considered too I am using the anchor text "cars"??


    Hopefully some advice.

    Not a penalty, your statement that you've never done work for just the word cars is your problem and you are lucky that you ranked for it at all before.

    Are you using SAPE links?
    Do you use keywords like auto, vehicles, car, cars, vehicle, truck, specific car models etc?

    This is pretty sick. it happend for me as well. It looks like we need to diversify the anchor text completely.
