    Why all of a sudden is my website ranking for random irrelevant keywords such as - microsoft office 2013 free download

    And ranking quite high for them

    Its scaring me

    I also have had a massive drop in Semrush from "58 traffic to 15"

    Please help

    WTF I just checkedd ahrefs and it is showing new links to my website that have the anchor "Windows-XP-Home-Edition-SP3" BUT the website that is linking to the site shouldn't even have that kind of anchor on it,

    and then when i click on the webpage the link and text can't be found on it

    Well maybe it is some form of Neg SEO attack. Or is this a new/expired domain?

    60,000 volume keyword is plenty worth pathetic people to attempt negative SEO. Use Majestic to find a possible spike in links and terrible anchor text. If you have been attacked you will need to make a list of the bad links and submit them to Google through the disavow process.

    You are probably hacked. Search google for site:yourdomain.com and try to find irrelavant pages that is not made by you. If you find them than you are hacked. Find a security expert that can fix the security issues.

    If they are ranking you for a term with that volume, they are not doing a very good job neg seo'ing you.
