Hi Guys,

Someone continuously sending DDOS attacks on my site my website was ranked under top 5 positions but after the attacks I have lost my ranks. now some of my keywords are ranking on 2nd page or in the last positions of 1st page.

Did anyone face the same problem? If yes so please guide me what to do to recover my ranks again?

    This is a marketing forum, you should try the SEO sub forum here.

    I guess it might be possible if your site was either inaccessible or extremely slow for an extended period of time, but it's got to be one of the least effective methods of nuking someone's presence.

    I don't think there's enough information to really say anything insightful about this. DDoS might've just been a completely unrelated event.
    Links in signature will not help your SEO. Not on this site, and not on any other forum.

    What's your excuse?

    You need to find a way to mitigate the attacks. You are never going to rank highly if your site is down a lot. Google is just trying to provide useful results to their users. A site that is regularly unresponsive, no matter how good it might be, is pretty much useless.
