    Need a little help guys. (Check attachment) What hapened on Sept 6th?

    No backlinking was done to this site. Though it is an affiliate site, all white hat seo.

    I have been racking my brain trying to figure out what happened because it doesnt rank at
    all anymore. To the best of my knowledge there were no changes to the website
    done on or even remotely around this time, its been running on autopilot.

    Any ideas??

    It ranked steadily for about a year though.

    I thought that may have been the problem so I started link building (automated) and it hasn't changed a thing.

    Have sites that link the affiliate programs like cb been effected by any algo updates based solely on the fact they link to cb?

    This is a .net EMD. Has anyone noticed a drop in ranking in non .com EMD's, backlinking aside?

    But the EMD update occurred way after Sept. the 6th, didn't it?

    Not sure. Something I'm doing Google doesn't like though. I wonder what that weird bounce was too.

    Is it indexed at all? I had something similiar happen to me, just to find that that my site has been deindexed for poor quality. All handwritten content btw, i believe google went a bit crazy over the last few months.

    18 pages are indexed. You can only find them by searching by the domain name or looking in webmaster tools though.

    I would post on Webmaster forums and be honest about your domain - You will get some valid responses and, if this is a pure white hat site, Google may take pity. Those forums are your only way to get the attention of G.

    When this kind of thing happens I generally do a full domain analysis. Run it through Copyscape and make sure it's 100% unique. Add at least one blog post per day. Use robots.txt to remove any weak pages from the Google index. High quality backlinks (moz authority 50 +) and make sure you have Google Author markup.

    Good luck!
