    I have one multiniche site and i was building quality links with gsa ser every day for a week and it was climbing slowly in serps all posts then i decided to add to each inner page around 30 web2.0 and i was build links to those web2.0 via gsa ser. Then after 2-3 days all inner pages dropped to N/A and didnt came back for 2 weeks i am still waiting and hoping for them to came back or do a dance but nothing. I was thinking maybe it was waiting period. My exact keyword anchor for all posts is not more than 6%.
    Also there is one niche on same site that i didnt built web2.0 to it only gsa ser links and it didnt acted like that it was slowly climbing and now it reached top 10 with support from several hq SAPE links.

    It seems your web2.0s may be causing the problem, have you done unique content? If they dont come back, just try removing your links from some of the internal pages and see how it goes.

    yup as hitchhikerz says, try removing the links from those web 2.0. Then check your page if it is indexed.
    Btw monitor the internal page after removing those links..

    I wouldn't trust sending any links built with GSA directly to my money site. Uniqueness aside, are these articles readable? Are the websites spammed to high hell? If you have built 20 crap links in a day then there is a good chance you got a slap on the wrist. If that is the case then get rid of those links immediately.

    I'm not trying to bash your efforts or anything. You just have to be really careful building links nowadays. I would probably delete the links anyway and keep GSA pointed at your higher tiers.

    It could be down to the fact that you spammed your site with gsa ser - I wouldn't use any link that creates direct to my site, since i feel there's too a high a percentage of those links are on the list of disavowed links, but that's just me. Google doesn't need to know every link that gsa ser creates - it only needs to know a certain percentage and you can bet that they do. If your site's backlink profile meets this percentage then it's bye bye - Or at least that's what i would expect.

    But, and this is just a theory that i haven't tested properly yet - I have seen a few threads like this pop up in the last couple of weeks - It could be a case that google is now treating any backlink profile with too high a percentage of web 2.0s and / or wordpress links as suspect sites and filtering their rankings.

    Again, you don't have to take a word i say as truth since i haven't tested it fully, but im sure google know that the vast majority of blackhatters have been using wordpress pbns and web 2.0s to rank sites, and maybe some gsa spam.

    A natural website's backlink profile wouldn't consist of more than a certain percentage of wordpress and web 2.0 links, so why not filter any sites who go over a certain percentage of these links?

    Ye there might be innocent casualties on the way, but the majority of blackhatters are gonna struggle to rank their sites easily. That's the way id be looking at it if i was matt cutts anyway. If it's not happening now, i wouldn't be too surprised if it happens soon.

    You said the content linking to your site was good quality, so the only other thing i could think of if it's none of the above is the content on your site. You know panda 4.0 was rolled out recently as well ye? Ignoring keyword density, how many pages does your site have - i.e is it being penalized for being a thin site. And how long are your posts? - i.e is it being penalized for being a thin site - short, unstructured posts = low quality content, is what im seeing since the latest panda update. 800 words + is what im personally doing now.

    Just my 2 cents anyway.

    I didn't spammed it with gsa ser, i also built before links with gsa ser and pass all updates. I use it to diversify anchor profile and it can bring some link juice also.
    My other post on same site is now ranked #6 same strategy with GSA SER but without these web2.0, i added some HQ SAPE links btw, like 10 of them.
    Keyword searches is 50k
    Seems like no "waiting period" happens on this one, see also screenshot
    [​IMG]
    For all posts keyword density is like 1.5% and word count around 500.

    I will now remove these web2.0 from one post too see what will happen, i will leave other ones maybe they come back it can be waiting period that prevent's them from returning to serps i am not sure.

    GSA has been working for many with EMDs for local results and Youtube videos. However I used Z-Submitter for web 2.0s and my urls were reported, penalized. I worked allot on some of them. I think WEB 2.0s are not all that anymore. I only like to use Rebelmouse or Pressly now.

    6% anchor text is WAY high. You should NEVER be repeating the same anchors.

    I agree. I would suggest keeping it below 3%
