    Short story, .com website about 4 months old was getting around 300 unique views/day. Has around 4000 backlinks around 800 were done manually and the others with GSA bot. I ranked #1 almost on every search engine for my main keyword and #4 - #13 to my other keywords. Suddenly I only got about 10 views/day.

    Did I got deindexed/blacklisted? How can I fix this? The website it`s a blog if that helps. Got over 300 waiting for approval spam comments but I don`t think that would affect my website.

    You seem to get penalized.. give it a week time atleast to see what happens and if still at same positions you should try to rethink your backlink strategies

    Sounds like your penalized. Same thing has happened to me from using spammy links. If youre in a hurry to get your rankings back, then buy the .net or .org of your domain and clone your site on to it. Do not 301 redirect the old site to the new site. Just keep adding well written content with images, vids, and other stylistic elements to the new site once its cloned. You should be back to ranking in 6-10 days.

    If your site is de-indexed it won't show up when you search for "site:yoursite.com" in Google. Alot of GSA links fall off from being indexed after awhile so I would check Ahrefs.com to see how many links have fallen off. Also check your anchor text distribution. Wait it out, disavow crap links, are other options like the people above mentioned.

    Also check if the content on your domain is duplicate. Your site could also be over-optimized so check your title tag, internal links, keyword density, etc...Make sure to check for synonyms when looking at over optimization, not just the main keyword.

    Yes, its more than likely going to be bad links. As said before check links and try to clean up.

    I would say make sure you update it with a nice few original content posts and clean up links, then make a good link profile. Could take a bit for Google to re-index though.

    Thanks guys. Content is 100% original as I write things that happen in my life and things that could help people out. It must be the links as you guys said. I`ll just wait for a few more weeks to see if there are any results after that i`m going to clean bad links.

    Some real paranoid and not very well informed comments here (sorry -but they are).
    Guesswork in most cases. I'm seeing knee jerk reactions. You're being asked to consider the most drastic cause before eliminating the far more common and simple reasons this kind of thing happens

    It might (just MIGHT) be some dud link slap - but not very likely.

    Without knowing your website or competition it's hard to say but I'm betting one of the following three has happened.

    Possibility 1) Google deliberately take longer and longer to accumulate trust for a site - used to be days back in the ealy 2000's, then weeks, then a month to six weeks as recently as 2011. Now in some niches Nwhere the competition has a lot of accrued trust - it can be 6 months. Be patient - you might still be bouncing. Used to be that 4 months was LOADS of time for a site to settle. Now it's borderline if not a little on the short side. Google like sites to build up trust - but they often promote the new site...but temporarily...it's the upside of the "Google Dance" In fact it's why it's called a "Dance" if it was all just downward movement they would have called it the "Google Drop"...but they don't. Maybe your site did not deserve ever to be where it was and they are now shuffling it to find the best place. You did nothing wrong, your site is fine. Add content - build links.

    Possibility 2) You had some links that catapulted you to page one quick - and they have died. Something really powerful you did early in your offsite SEO thet has either dropped off the main page of the site you put it on, been deleted by the webmaster or similar. People often bookmark early in a sites life to get it indexed. Bookmarks are excellent but transitional links. They drop down the canonical structure of the site they are on - and then get archived - taking their link juice with them. Blog comments, forum posts and other link types suffer similar fates. They are on page one, then over time they get buried. Check some of your best early build links are still there.

    Possibility 3) Transitional Ranking Algorithm has kicked in to see how you react. July last year saw Google introduce TR. It DELIBERATELY messes with your head to see how you react. The received wisdom here is to carry on as if nothing happened. They are looking for a self promoter to REACT and change the pattern they are seeing. DON'T CHANGE.

    Unless you have spammed the same platform or used the same anchor text or bought into a private link farm - chances are your site is fine.
    If it was de-indexed you would not see it at all.

    You might have been getting all that traffic because of the google honeymoon period. On another note, it could have been an algorithmic filter you tripped.

    You can start adding some content and build some url anchors to see how the site reacts. But don't dwell too much on it. Start building some more sites while google figures out what to do with your site.
