    My money site is getting destroyed in the SERPs, is this some kind of algo penalty?

    Well, I agree with what are you saying, but still: 1. Of course it is speculation on my part what caused the drop. Without having direct access to Google or them letting me know, how else can I know for certain what caused my website to drop? It could be lots of things and I just think that it...

    My money site is getting destroyed in the SERPs, is this some kind of algo penalty?

    It did not look natural, no. But I am also just speculating that it was caused by this change, perhaps the anchor text change did not cause it? The counterpoint could be made - the loss occurred more than 5 months later after changing the anchor text. I am using Ahrefs but for my own money site...

    My money site is getting destroyed in the SERPs, is this some kind of algo penalty?

    I did. So I will just quote it here again: I later tried to change it to a more balanced anchor text distribution, but without any luck. Like those changes are absolutely ignored, there is barely any difference after changing it. Which should not be the case after changing 170-200 PBN links...

    My money site is getting destroyed in the SERPs, is this some kind of algo penalty?

    Just a quick update. I have tested something that I should have done a long time ago. I just pointed a few links of my PBNs to a couple of competitors to see what will happen. It has been just a couple of days since doing it but I can already see two links getting indexed and the linked websites...

    My money site is getting destroyed in the SERPs, is this some kind of algo penalty?

    Ok, I have added one of my PBNs to the Search Console, waiting for the data to come in. But that does not explain it really why would I be ranking for years in the top spots and then the sudden drop. If the PBNs would be weak in the first place then I would never rank. My theory is like this -...

    My money site is getting destroyed in the SERPs, is this some kind of algo penalty?

    Just a quick update - I have tried anything and it did not work. The bad thing is that even trying to point the PBN slowly to a new domain didn't make any moves in the serps, maybe perhaps some very small ones. I have like 200 PBN sites and they don't move the needle at all for my money sites...

    SEO Case Study: "How Google Suggestion boost my Sites And my Brand"

    Is it important to just search for the terms or do you also need to open the website after seraching with the branded term?

    Will PM you shortly. Thanks.

    AMA about PBNs (setup, footprints, things to avoid, et al.)

    Do you have any idea what could be the issue here: 200 PBN sites, niche specific, all with OBL = 1 (well +1 authority link mostly) Previously they have boosted the main money site really well, but I started to mess with the existing anchor texts. For a short-while it worked pretty well. Then...

    How long does it take in your experience to see the full effect of a new PBN link?

    AMA about PBNs (setup, footprints, things to avoid, et al.)

    Regarding anchor diversity - do you think that there are big differences between English sites (.com google) and sites from lets say really small EU countries/languages? Because every time I review my competitors pages (just exact URL, not whole domain) on ahrefs in a very competitive niche...

    What about link velocity? Does it matter? Lets go back to my example - you have 200 PBN at your disposal and a single money site. How would you schedule it? Thanks.

    AMA about PBNs (setup, footprints, things to avoid, et al.)

    Thanks for your reply. So there are 3 options as you have mentioned: 1) static page on the home page with the link Downside: I will be loosing some link juice compared to an inner page that can be more relevant from multiple aspects (more relevant URL and also the homepage will have probably...

    So sometimes you display the whole article with the link showing directly on the homepage and sometimes you show just excerpts so you have to click on to see the full post with the link to the money site? If yes - any estimate of a good ratio for this?

    My money site is getting destroyed in the SERPs, is this some kind of algo penalty?

    Thanks for your reply @MoneyValue . Fortunately I do have a backup site in the same niche. How exactly have you done the 301? On a page to page basis? Like oldsite.com/blue-widget => newsite.com/blue-widget etc.? Old homepage to new homepage? And also - have you done it all at once or in...

    My money site is getting destroyed in the SERPs, is this some kind of algo penalty?

    Yes, I have thought about the same thing. Sounds plausible. So the only thing how to escape this would be to build a new website, right? Or wait for years till I am reviewed again (and the website meets all their criteria). I think I will wait perhaps for another month or so and if there is no...

    My money site is getting destroyed in the SERPs, is this some kind of algo penalty?

    6 months later, did many changes but still not recovered. I have literally rebuilt the whole website. Previously the main money page with most of the content was the homepage. I have moved the whole content and split it into 3 subpages. The homepage right now has only some basic information...

    My money site is getting destroyed in the SERPs, is this some kind of algo penalty?

    Still no recovery in sight. Hovering around the same numbers. I have a backup website in the same niche where I have created its own separate 30 domain PBN and after some small initial climb in the serps it started to fall down. Like 29 of those 30 links use brand/url anchor text. So I do have...

    My money site is getting destroyed in the SERPs, is this some kind of algo penalty?

    Nope, found no malicious links in Search Console, ahrefs or just searching for my own website in Google. I check them regularly and in all those years only 3 PBN of mine were deindexed. Others are still online. Hmm, but it would have some cause why would I get penalized. That is what I am...

    My money site is getting destroyed in the SERPs, is this some kind of algo penalty?

    Oh and one more thing. I have just deleted special characters from my meta descriptions. I used them for most of my pages and quite heavily, like 3 special characters in most of the meta description. Characters like ✅ or ⭐. Perhaps that hurt my EAT? It looks a bit spammy for a finance niche...
