Hi I've had a site that was finally de-ranked on june26th. I thought I was immune to mayday up until that date.
I've been hammering the web and this site looking for information trying to figure out when I would or may get my rankings back.
My site still has it's pagerank and isn't deindexed, it's just not ranking.
My question is has anyone seen any restoration of their original rankings yet? If so, how long were they in the "void" of the serps?
If they haven't seen a restoration, how long have your sites been de-ranked? I want to know exact days or dates.
We can figure out what is really going on if we put our heads together and work with facts. I've myself concluded that 20-35 days is what you need to get most of your rankings back provided nobody reports your sites and you don't do anything "dumb" but that is loose info based on this thread and elsewhere.
I also am aware that sites that target "thin affiliate sites" or 1-5 page sites are adversely affected but I have seen blogs and a site similar to my own that has the same or just 1 page ranking on google just fine.
I also went out and got 1000's of links within a couple of weeks, mostly nofollow. So I want to know how many links, if any, your sites that were deranked got.
I realize this is my first post but I don't normally post. Mayday changed that so now here I am =). Thanks everyone.
