    That is a Very Competitive Niche.

    Most likely your COMPETITORS reported the site.

    IT happens a lot in the weight loss pills niche.

    OVER optimization can also cause it (Aggressive Anchor Text Strategy)

      How does that work exactly? What would a competitor even report a site like that for?

    More like who would they report it too? I've yet to see a "Report this site" button from Google.

        I guess now we see how long it takes for the site to get de-ranked or de-indexed. The site is oddsmakerpromocodes.blogspot.com

          It's not for reporting people you don't like. It's for reporting legitimate abuses.

    Could be something to do with the many updates Google made to there algo this month:

    Here's just a few that may be of interest.

    Improvements to freshness. [launch codename “iotfreshweb”, project codename “Freshness”] We’ve applied new signals which help us surface fresh content in our results even more quickly than before

    Panda update. This launch refreshes data in the Panda system, making it more accurate and more sensitive to recent changes on the web.

    Link evaluation. We often use characteristics of links to help us figure out the topic of a linked page. We have changed the way in which we evaluate links; in particular, we are turning off a method of link analysis that we used for several years. We often rearchitect or turn off parts of our scoring in order to keep our system maintainable, clean and understandable.

    Spam update. In the process of investigating some potential spam, we found and fixed some weaknesses in our spam protections.

    Sometimes these things just happen, I've seen it happen to authority websites with unique and high quality content. 7 times out of 10 after a certain time period expires, the site will be back to how it was before (no, I'm not referring to Google Dance).

    Thanks everyone, my site is having 100% white hat link building than why competitor will report it to Google.

    Also, we don't have control if our competitor will blast our site with low quality thousands of link.

    Yes, it may be a case of over optimisation of keyword.

    It seems SEO is a little hard to do, sometimes it needs to be perfect done to get more traffic. If there is one part lost, I think it'll not good for the website.
