WEB SEO Crew - why would a site fall off of google's results after being in the top 10?

    This has happened to myself and a few others I know.

    One day, I'm the # 2 and 3 results for a specific keyword, then the next I'm not even on the top 10, top 20, etc.. no idea which page I ended up on. On the 26th I had a record high of 26k hits. Today I'm down to roughly 4k, and nowhere to be seen on google for that keyword.

    What are some things that could get my site(s) booted? Once booted from the top 10, how can I get them back?

    It seems like they've become blacklisted... one was gone once, then came back to the top 10 and I didn't change anything. Really fucks with my earnings. :mad:

    you probably had a page that got reddited, while the site was on the front page of reddit you had higher page rank, once it left the high page, bam you got fucked

    Nah, wasn't on reddit. :hsd: All my traffic was organic from decent SEO, but then got shitboxed again.

    you prolly did a blast, and google did some house cleaning and re-evaluated your SERPs and you got fucked. thats what you get when you do blackhat and stop

    If you've got webmasters tool set through google log in and put in a reinclusion request.

    I've seen this happen a bunch of times, you probably got a minus 50. Do as I stated above and you should be back within 2-3 days.

    Edit:
    Also it could be re-evaluating your SERPs due to some new inbound links. I've seen this before also, it will bounce around, a bit (if you went down to page two or three only) and then pop you back up higher than before.

    As I said, this was all completely SEO organic traffic. No blackhat shit whatsoever.

    Not a site running an old version Wordpress by chance is it? Heard of a few people who had some hidden spam links in their footers due to a WP exploit and were de-indexed from google until they got it fixed.

    Nope, not wordpress.

    I have a few sites linking to one another by a shared links file. I have since removed that since I am not sure of the rules on that.

    If you own a number of domains don't interlink them, do a round-robin type of linking pattern where no one site links back to the other. Make sure all domains are on the very minimum seperate C-class ips.

    I meant to do that, but by the time I was ready to it was too late. By a day or two.. :mad:

    They were all on one shitty hostgator plan, or on my single imountain plan.

    Happens all the time...especially if it's a new site. You could rocket to the top of the listings and then BOOM gone tomorrow.

    It will come back.

    P.S. - plztouchit, I am in love with your avatar.

    Happens often when google is re-evaluating SERPS. If you were high up once I'm sure you'd go back up to where you were.

    Happened to me about a year ago... never came back :( I was #1 for "jailbait"... now I'm always on page 50+... I've done everything without any results. I gave up months ago, and decided to use other methods to get traffic, now I'm getting 35K+ uniques daily :) The weird part is that I'm still #1 for tons of other keywords... only got -50 for the word "jailbait"...

    Good to hear. You've just experienced what I call the Google Dribble Effect.
