I have for the past few months ranked around #10 for a very competitive keyphrase. On 27th March I added to the index page a 2 line text line to a new internal page and the very next day I dropped to #630 for the same keyphrase!
Is this typical or a coincidence?
I have removed the text/link and the new internal page now, should it goe back to the previous ranking anytime soon?
I am panicked here and will be very poor if nothing changes lol
Try contacting the site owner first. This happened to me about a year ago with two sites. I was actually able to get the owner of one site to remove the copy. I reported the other site to Adsense support because they were also displaying adsense illegally. That took care of the other site. Everything was back to normal within 2 months.
Try to change this paragraph, hunting the site owners or waiting for google to do the work for you can take some time. When it happens to me I just sit for 15 minutes and write a better paragraph. I know it might sound like folding but when you need to support 30 families...there is no time for principles games.
