    Is it about content? Is it about backlinks? Is it about exact match domains?

    One of my site dropped from #2 to #72. Other websites I have with the same characteristics (EMD, low competition keyword, few manually made backlinks with web 2.0, social profiles and social bookmarking) stay stable.

    Is there any hope that the site affected is just temporary Google Dance?

    To me this new update seem to hit totally randomly

    I am sure that this was not about backlinks because I never tried to build any backlinks for my site. All links were from social media sites, web 2.0 and some high quality sites.

    Please, I want to show you guys my website that has been affected so that you can give me some suggestions. It cannot be considered selfpromotion since it's in italian and in the pregnancy niche (I don't think there are many infertile italian women here):

    Any suggestions from SEO esperts appreciated

    You have a 1 page website promoting a clickbank product.

    You site is a blatant affiliate site that doesn't provide any value to a visitor. Next time at least cloak you affiliate link.

    Looking at your site, It does not seem to have hit by the march 7th update. I think its just normal google dance (if they have not penalized you for something really bad) and the dust should settle down in 7-10 days time...

    You need a lot more content for google. Google dont want to give people sales pages when they search. They want to give people information. You need articles on babies, pregancy etc etc for people to read. And a few videos to keep people interested. Also you need a contact us page , an about page and a privacy policy page.

    You have only 1 page. You say the only promotional method is "social signs". I say, these are also links. But that is another story.

    Make contextual links from other websites.

    Yes, I don't get traffic only from google. And I've made a lot of sales from that site

    (And I regularly check Copyscape. Just in case)
