My websites rankings have completely vanished from Google. Please help! prateek3012 6/23/11 11:07 PM
I have read the FAQs and checked for similar issues: YES
My site's URL (web address) is: http://www.bollykings.com
Description (including timeline of any changes made):

13th April:

On this day, I found that nearly all of my top keywords weren't ranking on page one before. A little Googling and I found out something about a Panda update to weed out low quality spammy sites. Since we have top quality and relevant content on our website, I didn't see why I was being affected by this. However, since I use Wordpress I thought there was duplicate content on my website but I checked all over and I have highly limited the indexing on my website to prevent duplicate content. I continued to create wonderful and relevant content for my website in the hope that my rankings will come back up again.

18th June- ALL My rankings have gone and from 18000 page views a day, I have come down to 200 page views a day. I checked google webmaster tools and found out that I had recieved the following message:

Dear site owner or webmaster of http://www.bollykings.com/,
We've detected that some of your site's pages may be using techniques that are outside Google's Webmaster Guidelines.
Specifically, look for possibly artificial or unnatural links pointing to your site that could be intended to manipulate PageRank. Examples of unnatural linking could include buying links to pass PageRank or participating in link schemes.
We encourage you to make changes to your site so that it meets our quality guidelines. Once you've made these changes, please submit your site for reconsideration in Google's search results.
If you find unnatural links to your site that you are unable to control or remove, please provide the details in your reconsideration request.

Now I have never indulged in spam. I hate spam as much as everyone does. So I cannot figure how these 'unnatural' links are pointing to my website. Can you please tell how to remove these links ASAP so that in the eyes of Google, my website becomes clean. Also, is it possible for a competitor to run a spam links campaign on my website to destroy my rankings?
Please tell me something of help man! My business has gone kaput because of this mess.

I have posted a reconsideration request to Google stating that I am seeing lots of unnatural links which I cannot control. Let's hope they help me out. I have to edit that page out, I had only a couple of links there before but those website have turned spammy.

Prateek3012, Please be serious. You need to stop spamming comments on blogs and focus on developing good content that will attract natural links.

I don't spam comments on blogs..and I am developing a lot of good content. the problem is that a lot of websites duplicate the content from our website. Google still says that my website violates their quality guidelines how do I rectify this problem? How do I find out which pages to remove from my website so that it becomes high quality again?

Can somebody please help?
