    So today i checked my SERP and it went from page 2 to page unknow (1000+). It was weird, then i visited my MNS and it was hacked by some kind of "Single Attacker Crew". I want to know why they do this? What they get from doing it? If they have good programming skill why they dont make money with it? They just randomly hacked my wordpress sites... Added somekind of crappy music and stuff. Is there any way to get my site back?

    Probably script kiddies with no skill. Ask your host to restore their backup if you don't have one.

    Remember the Jesus rule going forward: Save, Save and Save!

    I got some wordpress sites hacked also, it was very hard to get rid of the bad code, I had to delete wordpress completely and install everything again, but with database backups its not that hard. Well, they usually only put ads on my sites, but in way that I cannot see them. My only advice is wordfence wordpress plugin and never storing ftp pass in your ftp client.

    Going from SERP spot #2 to more than #1,000? Ouch--that is a really rough place to be in for anyone with any kind of web presence. Why do people do this? Because some people are just lousy excuses for human beings. That goes for these kinds of crackers and is also true in plenty of other categories. This is a good lesson to be learned about having good backups of all your site components and good security measures in place for every website. I hope the OP is able to get things back to where they were and to restore the site's previous success.

    Usually they are loser nerd kids sitting in the dark room and raising their self esteem by hacking random websites.

    For me I'd use it to put backlinks there.

    Do you have a backup of your site?
