Seems like analyzing your back link profile is one of the few relatively sure things you can do these days. I just found a site linking to one of my sites from about 3000 pages. All to my homepage with my primary 2word keyword in the anchor. Nice huh? Figure that was the work of one of my friendly competitors - especially since the same site links to 2 of my competitors in the same fashion. At one time, the 3 of us were 1-2-3 on that 2word keyword. Now we are all gone. Guess it worked.
Think I should try a reconsideration request? We haven't really been that nuked. We do have about a half million inbounds. Traffic is actually pretty good, but those links have to be hurting us.
