    My sites ranking dropped extremely within a few hours from being ranked top 10 the past year to drooping in the 200+ haha.

    I'm guessing it has to do with all the new links I been building. Should be back up in a bit since my link count hasn't changed on Google Webmaster tools also. When I search for my site im still there.

    God I feel like a noob when Google does things like this. -_-

    Sorry to hear that. I've been fortunate enough not to lose rankings for my keywords. I've been kind of conservative in my link building campaigns, meaning I don't overdo it by spamming my links all over the place. I mostly target high PR links and blogs that haven't been spammed to death.

    I also try to be consistent with the amount of links I target. That has worked well for me so I will keep doing the same thing.

    Hopefully, you will get back to your original ranking or come back stronger

    Yup pretty much rankings are coming back (not all of them) but a lot stronger. We will see where it decides to stop moving.

    Keep building links at a normal pace and you should be fine. This up and down can take a few weeks sometimes.

    haha thanks bro.

    Also some of my main keywords are still slacking and haven't made the bounce back and it has been 14 some days. I checked and saw the PR is still the same and all the links are still counted by big G. I'm guessing I need to keep the building up and see it bounce back.
