My site totally lost all SERP, have I been penalized?
Ok, so here's the story. I checked google webmaster and my pages are ranked top 10 for 16 different keywords. Next day I checked up on it and all my SERP is gone. I go through 5 pages on google and still don't see any of my pages. It's been 4 days now, nothing showed up on the search engine results. The strange thing is, google webmaster is updated daily and it still shows my pages fluctuating between 1 and 10 on the dashboard. My visitors dropped to zero and my total visits for some reason...decreasing. I don't know if that made sense to you guys.
Things I've tried:
I typed in site: my url and it showed all my pages. I typed in my domain name for the search and it came out 1st place. I did use alot of the same anchor texts in my backlinks...but if that was the reason, then my home page wouldn't rank first for its own name and my home page has the most same anchor text backlinks. I tried varying the anchor texts in my backlinks to see if it would fix it...nothing.
The questions is...am I penalized? and when should I freak out?
