Site Dropped Completely from SERPs. WHY???

After working my a** off for weeks, I woke up two days back to see that my site, Wireless Speakers, Bluetooth Speakers and Home Audio Reviews, has dropped completely off the SERPs.

From page #3 for 'wireless speakers' and no. 3 for 'best Bluetooth speakers', it can't be found anywhere in the top 200 for any keyword whatsoever.

110+ well written posts later, my site is now averaging 5 visitors per day through search, as compared to 200+ two days ago.

Why on earth was my site given this penalty?

I mean, seriously. The site content is rock solid. It is updated with 2+ posts everyday.

Worst of all, all the backlinking I've done is entirely through white-hat means. This includes a few guest posts, a few manual blog comments, and article submissions to ONLY EZA.

Seriously man...other sites on which I had done some greyhat stuff are ranking well even right now. But the ONLY site on which I go completely white hat in order to build a long term business gets hit with a Google penalty.

Google's rankings seem so damn unfair and random. There is NO logic whatsoever.

110+ posts should not deliver just 5 visitors. That makes a mockery of all my efforts.

I posted this question in the Google Webmaster forum and people there have no clue whatsoever, pointing out inane little things like "oh you submitted to ezinearticles.com that's why". Hopefully, someone here will have a better idea about why my site was given the penalty.

Please guys..I'm at my wits end. Have had a 102 F fever for the past two days which has rounded up what has been a terribly bad week.

    Well posting your link in this forum should help with that.

    There's a seo forum section you might get a better response there as your thread here may get deleted for not being in that section.

    might probably affected with the Panda update.

    Mind giving any idea how you promote your site on Search Engine?

    If you're doing proper OFFsite SEO,

    I doubt it if that would happen

      That's one heck of a delayed Panda update.

    There is no answer to this. Only Google knows.

    Anything we say is just speculation.

    It's completely possible that you're just having a knee-jerk reaction to a temporary change in the algorithm.

    I would stop worrying about such things and focus on where your traffic comes from and getting more of it by syndicating your content rather than trying to get organic visits you don't control.

    Thanks guys.

    I would like to believe that its just some temporary thing.

    I guess the only way forward is to keep on working.

    Would I be wrong if I say that anyone who works in the SEO/Webmaster space hates Google to the very core?

      Yes.

      I love Google - they've paid a lot of my bills.

        Hehe.

        Well - I think it comes down to expectations. I have no expectations and I never give my clients any expectations. I just say "i will do what I know works and we'll see how we get on". they pay for results so that's all that matters.

        Google is not the only game in town.

    Google dance, potentially tripped by your blog comments.

    Realistically though, your backlinks that you've built thus far are rather "low quality". Potentially the best if you backlink profile is your guest posts.

    Realistically you'll be back in a little while, but use this as a learning experience. Its always important to have high quality backlinks in your portfolio. This will decrease the fluctuations like this in the future.
