    How have you dealt with link penalties?


    I obtained an error, my site just came up on page 1 yesterday but today I can not still find it in the top 100, actually I thought my website was punished even though there was clearly no webmaster notification.
    So How have you dealt with this?

    If there's no notification in Search Console, there's no penalty. There may be other reasons for the site to vanish from Google but it needs to be diagnosed. There may be technical reasons (long downtime), webmaster errors (noindex tags) and more.

    Why is penalty always the first to suspect? Did you do any link building lately?

    I agree, why do you think it's a penality? Perhaps it was never on page one, you might have been seeing personal results. Or it could be one of the issues Ann mentioned.
