Hello,

I know that it takes very high effort to bring our site on top in search engines. But does it take the same time to drop our ranking. Suppose if i'd a website it is appearing very well in search engine and on top for every kps but if i want to drop my rankings then what it takes for search engines to drop it means what should i do so that my rankings will be go down. I know you may be thinking why i'm asking this question but lets discuss this also when we always discuss about getting only on top.

Thanks if you reply.

You can disallow all spidering through robots.txt - then request removal through a WebmasterTools account. Your site will not be in the index at all.

I don't like this question, seems like someone that want's to attack someone else's website. Please don't reply to this thread.

Hugene, I suspect good sense will see that only advice that is applicable if you are the site owner will get posted. Its a silly question really anyway.

you can't drop it permanently if the backlinks are still there. any website owner who suffers someone doing that can simply put the site back up and wait a while.

i had an PR5 site with about 4000 backlinks, took it offline for 6 months or so, and then decided to put it back up. within a month or two it was back to how it was.

I'd say the best answers are already given above, for any legitimate need at least. We're not going to discuss if/how you can sabotage other sites.

If you feel someone has sabotaged your site's rankings, then use WebmasterTools to report your concerns to Google, and be sure to give specific details. Google does want to safeguard legitimate sites against ranking sabotage, and they have a lot of safeguards already in place. If someone has found a way around current protections, they do want to know.
