Hey guys,

I have sites which dropped hundreds of positions in google.

Some of them are on the very last page google's index, while others are on position 252 or 560, etc.

What kind of penalty can cause this, such harsh drops?

    Building low quality links sounds about right.

      From your experience, this would be a penguin related issue? Does the penguin penalty manifest like this, dropping the site hundreds of places? I taught just 10, 20 places, not 500

    If the content pages were sitting in one spot for some time with no problem, then yea, i would say that you could have lost pages to building links (penguin). Were you building links? But just because the pages lost rank for one keyword, doesn't mean you cant rank the same page for different keywords, from my experience..And yea, I had a couple pages penalized by penguin, went from page one for a two keyword phrase to page 385.
