I have been running a Website for around 1 years and the website has been getting great rankings in google continuously for the past 6 moths.
Suddenly I lost all of my rankings on Google 2 weeks back. I have not engaged in anything new or anything which is not allowed by Google and dont know the reason for this penalty by Google. Google Crawl Rate has come down sharply.
I have digged into this forum and gone through various discussions but I am still not able to find a clear reason for this penalty. I believe I am following all the google guidelines. There is no change in Pagerank too.
I would like to state that I have done the steps given below:
1) Submitted my Sitemap again in Webmaster Tools.
2) Have been adding content to websites daily.
Even after following these steps and waiting for few days, there has been no change / improvement.
The only point that comes before me is that there have been few brief outages ( 5 minutes ) in the past week. But can this be responsible for this huge loss of rankings. My Traffic is around 1/3 of what it used to be.
Could someone please guide me as help me in finding the problem so that I can fix that.
I shall be thankful to you.
