What to do after paid links are hurting my SERPs?

    Hi,

    I bought a bunch of links for one of my websites and pretty much after that my positions have started dropping.

    I checked the websites and the links are good, the other people buying links for them are ranking well and I couldn't see anything wrong with them.

    Could it be that I bought around 30 and the guy put them all live all the same time? (that was 2 weeks ago)

    Should I keep waiting and see if the bounce back? Or get the guy to remove them and hope that I won't drop even more?

    Thanks,
    Charles

    30 links is not a high amount of links. What kind of links did you buy?

    Ever heard of the Google dance? Be patient as you will probably see your SERPS improve soon.

    Yes, I thought it could be the dance. But I have been buying links for that site for a couple of months now and every time I do, positions improve straightway.

    It was just this time with this batch of links that positions started dropping.

    This is exactly what happened to me. Paid for a pr6 blogroll and i got lasted to rank #>100.
    What do you guys suggest i should do now?
    Can it be a penalty? Or just a "dance"?

    You must just wait patiently because its just google dance.

    Dont stop submitting links - Focus on Social bookmarks, article submissions, web 2.0 links etc.

    Well, I've just started "dancing" but I hear 2 weeks is the time you're suppose to dance :)
