Help! My SEO rankings dropped significantly!
I need help with this very frustrating problem:
I started my first AffiloBluePrint site in August 2010.
I followed the videos and started building my backlinks. I used ezinearticles, AMA and blog comments, foren etc to build backlinks.
About 8 of my 22 keywords were ranking high enough in Google to be picked up by Traffic Travis doing a SEO analysis. All 8 keywords ranked in the top 40 results with 4 of them on the top page. I achieved these rankings by the end of 2010 and the beginning of 2011.
Since the beginning of March 2011(around the second week) all my keywords have fallen simultaneously below the top 100 search results in Google. At the time I had no rankings in MSN and Yahoo but now (April 20) rankings are slowly beginning to improve). However, in Google nothing seems to work.
I had also created a blog at blogspot.com and one at wordpress.com to link to my main site. The ranking of my wordpress.com site has also fallen (just like my main site) while the blogspot site has retained its first page ranking on Google search results.
I have checked my analytics account and the change in Google algorithm on 24. Feb 2011 did not seem to make any significant difference to my site.
Does anybody have any idea what happened to my site and what I can do to get back on the first page of Google search results?
Btw, the content on my site is original content that I wrote myself. I have picked up a few natural backlinks from other sites so hope its not the quality of my articles that caused this problem.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you very much.
