    Site Gone

    I have a comparable old PR4 site that I started to work on again last month. It achieved very nice rankings without any notable backlinks. Yesterday I created 3 bookmarks and maybe 2 backlinks, furthermore I wrote one new post. After that, my site has gone - doesn't even rank for its fantasy name which has 0% competition of course.

    Now the first thing I did was: Making the new post password protected and changing the anchor text of all the new created backlinks. If that won't make the site come back again I'll delete the new links I've build. I must somehow have triggered a filter at Google but can't figure out which or why. This is definitely NOT a Google Dance...

    Will keep you guys updated!

    This is normal, wait for about 1-2 weeks and report back.
    Also in the meanwhile create more content and build backlinks to that new posts + some backlinks to the homepage + some links to existing deep pages, but don't get frenzy with backlinks, like 5000 profile (junk) links etc...,
    it is always better to have few but quality links

    Cheer up man, it happened to most of us. Just as Nemanja's advice, continue building your site. Create as many high quality interesting post as you can and never give up.

    It started to happen to me only the last two month.
    I consulted three of the biggest SEO companies in UK and none of them has any idea what happened to my all my sites.
    However at least Google responded to me telling me that one of them has a manual penalty but they didnt tell me why...

    Sometimes, IM sucks!

    This happened to me also, manual penalty, I was(still am) in very high competitive niche and my competitors got me(snitch on me)
    thanks sucks, big time

    The best thing is to forget that site and start to create new one as soon as possible,
    also maybe you can use 301 redirect to that new site to get some of that back link power, but if that redirect will be success it depends on the type of that manual penalty.

    I never mention ban, google doesn't give you ban, they just use filters to devaluate your backlinks and then your rankings drop, my site is still in the index but with very bad rankings for my main keywords and I'm not banned from adsense.
    Also they can de-index your site, which is another story.
    And google adsense "ban" is another story also.

    I believe it's a scam to get you to advertise. OR to look out for the others who do.

    I do not use Adsense on this site. Google just devalued another whole website from me which my company invested 10.000 Euros into the last three month.
    Overall loss this month: 14.000 EUR and it's getting more and more.

    If things continue like this, my company won't survive pretty long.

    I still don't get how you can get penalize for posting new post, making 3 socialbookmarks, and 2 other backlinks. Maybe you should double check the links that are coming from the socialbookmark and the 2 other links that you're referring to. Can you elaborate more on the 2 other links that you've mentioned and can you tell us where they are coming from?

    So, Google has slapped a manual penalty... This means some one has filed a spam report against your website.
    If everything is fine with your website you can file a reconsideration request... if everything is fine, Google will revoke your penalty.
    Just refer the Google guidelines before filing the reconsideration request to make sure you are not violating any guidelines.
    Otherwise, manual penalties expires eventually after a certain period.
