View Full Version : site not sandboxed but i'm not hitting for my keywords -SEO woes
05-01-2011, 10:57 AM
so i decided do start clickjacking another site, this one movie related. everything was fine for a few days. i was getting ~2000 uvs a day organic for the keywords i was targeting. i am still way ahead of the competition for my keywords but now my site is not ranking anyore. it is not sandboxed as site:"mysite" still shows results.
so google didn't "sandboxed" me but decided to stop ranking me for certain keywords?
what should i do. obviously remove the clickjacking script, but will google automagically start ranking me for those keywords again or is there another step i can take. please help DG, this is one of my bigger money sites.

how did this happen/what can i do?
please help, i'm losing money quickly.

I've always said in my latest threads NOT TO clickjack your main site. AV companies (and many others) are scanning websites and adding clickjackers to a blacklist daily. I've lost some traffic due to this also.
And never ping xrumer blasts to a site ... It's an instant red flag. Let google find them slowly... Takes more time but it's more natural.

i know, i learned my lesson with clickjacking on my larger sites, but is there anything i can do? i mean i'm not sandboxed, just checked search.yahoo and ~200 of my backlinks already made it back but i'm still not ranking for my big keywords.
what can i do? thanks worldismine, your a boss.
You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to worldismine again.
yeah man some of my sites seem to have dropped off the serps as well and competitors "backup sites" are hitting the top... pretty weird.

I say keep backlinking, don't stop doing what you were doing. Thats the worst thing you can do. Check your reffs for URLS from AV companies, if there are any, contact their support to have the site off the list (TELL them you were hacked, its worked for me and I was off the list)
Competitors can whine to Google on you if your backlinks are shit. BUT, Google is so swamped they never do manual reviews unless it's a high target keyword / site... But there is always that 1 in a million that someone reported you and you got punished. (which I doubt)
I would just continue as usual and wait. There isn't much you can do anyway except work on the site to make it better.

If it makes you feel any better, one of my main sites vanished from page one about 2 weeks ago. I had the position for MONTHS... All unique content, lots of backlinks (more than competitors) .. I was like WTF??????????????????????????????????????????????
I kept doing what I was doing. Blast a few links, updated every 1-2 days.. Finally yesterday out of thin air I am back to the same position. Ugh, it sucks NOT to know what is causing this.

im seeing my sites in google webmaster tools showing positions i should be ranking for, but i'm not. perhaps it will come back up... but who knows. google been pissin me off.

Didn't Google recently change their algorithm? I seem to remember reading that they did and site owners were flipping out because a lot of sites dropped in rank all of a sudden. The change was supposed to help weed out "content farms"
I know if I don't keep building fresh links to my sites at least once a month everything will be fine for a few months and then I'll suddenly drop from page one to page two, three, four or worse all of a sudden. Once I get some fresh links it recovers though, usually within a month.
As for the Yahoo links I had the same thing happen a few weeks ago and now they're all back I think there might just be an issue with Yahoo or something.
