    I have a pretty old blog, around 4 years old to be exact, on general niche. Never overdone SEO, went for some guest posts on some decent websites, nothing more. I was sitting at around 12-15k monthly traffic. I bought a diversification package from here a couple of months ago. Links looked pretty good, all contextual, all on good websites, mainly used the URL of the domain as anchor. From there on, rankings kept decreasing. I tried buying a new diversification package to get rankings back, but didn`t help. I`m now sitting below 5k traffic and it`s still decreasing. It`s not a strong penalization, as my site shows when googled and even has sitelinks. It should be an algo trigger somewhere but I can`t really see where.

    My 2 questions are:
    Did anyone experience something similar and were you able to fix the problem?
    And do you guys know any recovering package with some decent links, no PBNs and removal of bad links on top of it? :)

    I wouldn't buy more BHW links to fix a BHW link problem :p

    Supa growth has a backlink checker, it checks their quality, if they're serving up malware etc. Might help. Have you added loads of affiliate links or perhaps loads of adds that might slow the pages down? Any big site/hosting changes recently?

    You don't use pop ups/unders at all do you?

    I don`t use pop-ups or pop-unders, I haven`t added any other ads than what I had, I only use media.net and natives from amazon, no obvious affiliate links :) I did change the hosting plan, but I was on a really bad one and changed it at the start of the new year, upgraded it in fact to one business plan costing 3 times more and with lots of added bonuses, so I wouldn`t bet on that to be the problem, to be honest.. And as for backlinks, I know there were a couple of penalty recovery packages offering to disavow ugly links and add clean links with general anchors or URL as anchor to get over penalizations.. that`s what I was looking for, not any kinds of new backlinks :)

    May be links are the problem, try getting them removed to see if it helps. Or it could be that you were caught up in one of the recent updates?

    I watched updates carefully, never did the website fall harder than the usually.. The website is as close to white hat I can imagine that`s why it`s pretty weird that google just seems to want to forget about it slowly or something..

    By the way, I tried the supa growth sufts but they only have the option to import the backlinks I have myself, importing backlinks itself would be a lot useful as a software :)
