    SEO Woes: Over 20 Months Ranked 1st Page, Now Out of Top 20 pages

    Sorry for long title and possibly placing this in the wrong section.

    Question for those of you who are SEO experts. I had a result on the first page of the particular keyword for about 20 months. This afternoon I checked, still result 8 (been moving down lately...) on page 1. I get home 5 hours later and check again. Gone. I go through 20 pages of that keyword and there is nothing. I checked other keywords I commonly receive traffic to that single blog post and they were all where they've been for months.

    Is it possible I'm blacklisted or whatever for the keyword? I've done nothing in months, but there are people I know that would be desperate enough to do so.

    If my site is blacklisted, how can I tell? Also, what actions would I see having been done that would alert me that my post was blacklisted on that individual keyword? Would I find some backlink building abuse, and if so, what would qualify as backlink abusing that would get me removed.

    Any advice, thoughts, or help would be great. You don't even have to be an SEO Expert. Just give your opinion as to what could have happened. I stopped after 20 pages out of sheer boredom. I don't think devouring the results was worth my time anyways.

    Not entirely sure of the bumping rules here thus after 48 hours I will bump it once and if there is no response I'll go ask on digitalpoint or something.

    Just trying to find some logical reasoning behind what happened. After the day I posted this it put me on page 8. So I got back in the top 20, just 7 pages further than I've been for the last 16 months.

    Tell us about your backlink profile.

    Do you have a lot of identical backlinks? Same anchor text?
