    The past few days, I realized several of my money sites were disappeared from the SERPs.

    Initially, several of my sites were ranking on the first page... today, to my surprise, they disappeared and nowhere to be found.

    This has really got me worried... don't know if Google has caught up my footprints or I just did some wrong moves.
    Just hope it's a Google Dance.

    None of my sites dropped, all of them still have stable rankings. A few actually hit #1 yesterday. There was a thread a few days back asking the same question - that could be related. It's probably just a random dance as far as I know. Don't worry too much :)

    Well, allegedly, it may have had something to do with SAPE

    [​IMG]

    Not too sure what to make of it to be honest as a number of folks here using SAPE have yet to be effected. I'd put my money more on a Penguin/Panda refresh or something like that.

    FUCK!

    I just realized 50% of my websites disappeared.
    For fuck's sake. That also constitutes 50% of my income.

    Worststill, only 2 or 3 of the websites uses SAPE. The rest were built with natural backlinks, yet they were affected.

    Wtf mate. Damn, better start planning an alternate route.

    well keep on building ppl, dont look back

    google is crazy

    one site I have in a competitive niche is page 3rd... with only 1 link... site is pretty small 4 pages... not a great on page optimization... I just made it to work on it later on

    another site in the same niche... was hit on 2011 by panda or penguin (dont remember) , dissapeared completely from serps... I did anything ... and yesterday it came back to page 8th... wtf?

    Thanks guys.

    But this is really frustrating.

    Just yesterday, another 3 sites disappeared to oblivion.
    Today, another 2 more sites disappeared.

    I don't know whether to freak out or not. I feel like throwing in the towel. But fuck that shit.

    I think I gonna take a short break. Will fuck Google up hard once I have my rest.
