Can someone sabotage your SEO?

    I have a very fast growing blog, most of my posts go straight to first page with little backlinking work. This new product came out that I made a post about, and did some backlinking. I was jumping all over the 1st page from 1st to 8th overall for a few weeks.

    Then my site started getting negative comments about the product, un-satisfied customers which leads me to believe that someone(possibly connected to this product) is sabotaging my post some how to push it down.

    My post is now dropping like a rock, and it has some how lost its description in google. All it shows is the title, really weird. Everyday it seems to drop a full page.

    WTF happened? Backlinks all look ok.

    It looks like that you are not continuing your SEO and link building techniques, whereas your competitors are still on their move. I suggest you continue to get quality and relevant backlinks and check the weak points (with the comments posted on your site) about your blog.

    And about sabotaging SEO campaign, YES. It can be sabotaged by your competitors. Welcome to Google Bowling???

    Tip: Keep optimizing, writing and adding quality to your blog and no one can harm you.

    Hope this helps.

    May be your posts were getting the fresh content boost / QDF ( Query Deserves Freshness ) benefit and now the posts are settling to their natural rankings position?

    It would take a LOT of work and time to google bowl anybody as incoming links usually can't hurt you

    I'd wait for a week or two before jumping to conclusion here.

    Google bowling means to submit competitor's link in spamming sites, irrelevant sites and in short; spamdexing... to minimize and decrease the weight of the website in Google that would certainly effect SERPs.

    Google around and you'll find more about it.

    Good luck,
