Very sad day today.
My main site with 800 unique visitors a day disappeared out of the Google Index.
With that I mean when I google for "site:www.mysite.com" without the quotes, there shows up nothing.
The site has around 60 pages that are optimized for one keyword each. The domain has PR2 and is about 9 years old. (Bought in 02/11)
In the past 2,5 month I´ve done a lot of backlinking to the Main-page and to the other keyword optimized pages. Yahoo is showing around 1950 backlinks already. I´ve also made a lot of backlinks to Web 2.0 properties to shield my site.
But then comes SEnuke X along.
I´ve read here and in other forums that there is nothing like the Google Sandbox or Google Deindexing and Backlinks can never hurt you. (man was I wrong)
So I decided to do a little bit nuking for my site.
Nuke 1 04/13/11 Wizard Full Monty (Main Page + 2 others)
Nuke 2 04/15/11 Wizard More Powerful Simple Pyramid (Main Page + 2 others)
Nuke 3 04/16/11 Wizard More Powerful Simple Pyramid (Main Page + 2 others)
Nuke 4 04/25/11 Wizard Full Monty (Main Page + 2 others)
That´s it. On 04/27/11 after around 300 Visitors, Google kicked me out of the Index.
That site made me around $200 this month in Adsense and Clickbank. Yesterday was 0,01 in Adsense.
I have two other sites that are Google Sandboxed since February and Beginning of April.
By Sandboxed I mean they show up in the google index but are on page 500 or elsewhere. These two sites are not nuked but I have bought Backlink packs at fiverr or Warriorforum. (Xrumer...)
Don´t let that happen to you!
Please keep attention to what you are doing to your sites. I can guarantee you that it is a very bad feeling when your sites are not found in google any more.
Any suggestions on what I can do to get my sites back in the Big G again?
And/or what can I do to not let this happen again to my other new sites that I´ll build?
How can I use SEnuke X in a more safe way?
