    Hey guys, one of my sites (service related) has faced a sudden drop in serp from #1 to #40 since 15th feb 2014.
    As far as i know, my site has been online since 2009, and since it's a site providing free service, I don't update much.
    It has been #1 for many years..and i don't promote much.

    Checking ahrefs.com, i'm still having more backlinks then those who are #1 to #10 now.
    Can someone advice me what to do next? thanks

    You answered your own question with "I don't update much". The websites now ranking, mostly have updated content on a weekly basis.

    The amount of backlinks is not important, it's the quality of your back links that counts!

    Your past will define your future in SEO.

    If you had shitty links built a year ago, as the algos change they will eventually catch up and penalize you.

    Clean your link profile and you will see how it gets back on track.

    Everything add up. Types of Links, Anchor text of links, Freshness of content etc....

    If you have not done proper onpage SEO then you need to see what can be done there. If you can able to add few more QUALITY links with diversified anchor text then it might help.

    It has became worst day by day, from page 1 to 4, then today it's not in the first 10 pages.
    For the last 2 to 3 years everything was fine :(

    Hello guys, I came back to update.
    Looks like my site with the usual KW is gone from google search (although I believe it has not been banned). Any advice?
