    So i have been doing seo for almost 10 years now and i can now tell about myself without bragging that im an expert. I created myself all the custom tools i need to become top 10 at just about everything.

    But what can we do, we are not always perfect at what we do, in some cases we got the ranking that we want for a while, then we lose a few links and the ranking drops and in some cases the website is disappeared from google forever. Forever? Not necessarily! I found a way to lose all penalties and start over, or even better restart with a good kickstart of your old seo work.

    So as i was saying -

    1. You gain the ranking.
    2. You lose a few links.
    3. You lose the rankings.

    Now how do you get back up there??

    1. You put the website DOWN, meaning 404.
    2. You wait until the website loses his pagerank to N/A.
    3. You put the website back up, boom! You gain your ranking again.
    You don't always get the same ranking, but say you used to be top 10, now you will be top 20 and the distance back to top 10 is not so far anymore.

    What im trying to say is that once you have done an seo job on a website, you can always recover a dead website and enjoy the linking work you did in the past.

    Did anybody had similar experience. Will be more than happy to hear...

    Good share :)

    Only thing is when your site has been fucked coz of the links you had. Even if it comes back to life you wont be able to enjoy those links (since they are *poisoned*)

    If the links were bad to begin with then it could sometimes be a problem. But what are bad links? im not sure. If you managed to get to top 10 for your keyword so they can't be that bad. Put your website down, lose your pagerank, put it back up, you will get the points for the remaining links from your previous work.

    I've seen this work in the past myself, but I would recommend adding another step into the process: Working to improve the site according to current standards/filters such as over-optimization and canonicalization, and then putting the site back up.

    In the case of bad links - what about using the 'disavow links' tool. Has anyone been able to recover a site using this?

    This really only works with certain sites.. it's highly situational. For example, this will NOT work with sites that have been hit by Google's panda or penguin updates, nor the "overoptimized anchor" sections of the algorithm. For those 3 you actually have to fix the issue with better content and better (or remove some of the bad) links. You can try to 301 to a new domain as well.

    For those major updates, some people have reported good results by parking the page for a period of time and changing the whois registration info to make it look like the site was sold to a new party.

    Sure, it will work best if the links you had before are good, if you had some bad links it is best if you remove your website from there. The idea of this strategy is to put down the website so that you lose pagerank, from my experience google sees the website as a new one so you don't have any old penalties, it is as if you start all over and just enjoy the old link juice.

    Regrading using 301 redirect, from what i have experienced you transfer the bad reputation as well, not only the link juice.
