Seems i am penalized on major keyword

    Today i was checking rankings on my top keywords which brings a lot of traffic and i was not able to find my site anymore.Same for other keyword too,but i still rank first for other two minor keywords.My friend warned me how i have a lot of deleted internal pages which are deleted.Could be that cause?Also i remember there was a site to check for penalized score,anyone remembers url?
    Seems http://www.seopenalty.com/ reports how i am heavy penalized.

    No idea,but seems it is right in this case.Also,i added one outgoing link yesterday,i wonder could that affect it.This simpy doesnt have sense,it would have sense if i dropped few positions(as it happened before)and not totaly down.

    That's wierd, I've never heard of a specific keyword ban. Did you lose any backlinks?

    Nop i think i didnt.I am penalized for some reason,now i am dropped on last remain good keyword(but atleast not totaly,i am third there now)
    Could some analyze site and found out what is wrong?But could be beacuse of a lot of 404 subsites which was indexed and then gone and google bot finaly noticed so as a countermeasure i adding sub sections now.

    I, too, lost ranking on one of my good key phrases. I just chalked it up to the impending Caffeine update.

    Same here, however when I check google one data center which is said to have got the caffeine live, some of my rankings are back. Wait for the Christmas.

    It is according to seopenalty.com.And its not normal when you drop on two keyword for 800 positions.

    on a day to day basis I am of the opinion that Google changes the ranking equation quite a bit. I always see volatility in campaigns at the beginning.

    If you lost alot of pages that had the 2 keywords it could make it drop.

    Forget using SEOPENALTY as it has no basis for knowing if you are penalised.
    Keyword penalties do exist for over optimisation of them!

    It could simply be that OTHER sites have gained more relevance according to google's algorithms. Doesn't look to be a penalty if you're still in the index

    Well could be since i was targeting to get better position by using only that keyword.But few last i changed it second keyword which i was targetting(which make it only backlink with that keywords)And i was penalized on both,while on third was i was not doing any direct keyword backlink since i already first for that one.Also could this be caused by sitewide link?

    I check 5 websites via seopenalty.com and all websites showed the same result: HEAVY PENALIZED, Penalty Level: tot. 10 points (0 min. - 10 max.), one of website I checked was google.com --> google.com was penalized by itself :(
    I think seopenalty.com is only for fun (that unfortunately not so fun)

    I'm still wondering what principle seopenalty.com uses in order to report its results. It can't be integrated into some of Google databases, I believe. Strange...

    I lost all traffic from google but there are traffics from web referer.. Right now I have to focus building traffic from web than SE. So I don't care and worry anymore about SE. Like trading.. Many small customers is better than one big customer..
