Well I think my blog got penalized. I was ranking second page for my main keywords, now one of them is page 3 and the other one isn't even on the top 100 anymore. What I've been doing so far (all manual) tumblr around 20 blog comments daily around 5-10 yahoo answers daily around 10 forum posts daily around 10 total bookmarks 2 guest blogs 5 web 2.0s around 30 wikis (GSA) Have a Facebook fanpage, pinterest page and a twitter page all linking to my site. Then for the web 2.0s I use GSA on them. I've been doing this for around a month and my site is around 4-5 months old. I checked out ahrefs and apparantly I have 9k backlinks??? I know that I didn't make that much. Around 2k max probably total. Right now, I'm thinking of ditching SEO or not focusing heavily on it but using some other way of getting traffic. I might do more guest blogging as well as focus on social networks, forums, blog comments etc.. but not focusing on building links. But I am a newbie at this stuff and I'm lost where to go from here which is why I'm asking.
