    I know this question does not seem specific, but please let me know how do you rank sites these days?

    I post only original and quality content
    I do quality links
    I do guest blogging on good sites
    I don't use any kind of likes like reciprocal, spam, paid and so on

    But several days ago my sites has been dropped.

    Many of my competitors have been dropped?

    What do you think about affiliate/cpa links on sites?Are they a negative factor?Many of my competitors don't have these.

    This question is almost the same as the question you asked in this thread, so the answer will be similar as well. The difference here is that you specified, sort of, what you have been doing. Because your website's ranking have dropped, however, you must not be doing one of the steps properly. Pretend you are a visitor, and read your content. Does it seem interesting to you? Do you feel that it was written for you? Does it provide what you were looking for. Then take a look at your links, and the links of your higher ranked competitors. Are their links better than yours? Do your links come from a variety of sources? Have you written any articles, and shared them on networking sites, or are you relying too much on guest blogging? As far as the affiliate/cpa links, are the competitors who don't have them ranked higher than you?
    As i said in the other thread, you will have to make sure you are strictly adhering to the search engine's guidelines, in order to make sure you are ranking as high as possible.

    The best practice is the same ones that have existed for years. Serve your readers. Put links on sites they visit. Use the terms your readers use. Produce the finest content possible that readers want to share, which leads to more incoming links for you.

    I suspect what you are seeing is the continual efforts of Google to increase relevancy in search results and their continual efforts to return more local results for local searchers. We still see sites climbing in the rankings, but shotgun style efforts do not work anymore. You need to focus on quality, relevancy, and locality.

    Optimizing brand has become important rather than optimizing for website's keywords. And also social media marketing is the best method for brand promotion.

    Actually Forum Submission is NOT even close to being one of the best practices. That type of link is to easy to get, so has very little value, if any, to the search engines.

    Forum commenting and Guest posting is very effective.

    Guest posting is only effective if your guest post is informative and interesting to the reader. As I have already mentioned (right before your post, in fact) forum submission is not very effective. Perhaps I should have specified that "submission" includes commenting as well as creating a thread.
