3 of my sites recover from Google Penguin in a few days after I performed this simple task. I am not sure if this is a coincidence or a real fix. The 3 sites that got penalized dropped about 75 spots. All I did was I logged on to my webmasters account and switched my geographic target from global to local. A few days later, they all started to move up like 10 spots a day. Now they are pretty much where they used to be before Penguin. I am baffled. I am not sure if this is temporary fix, a coincidence, or permanent. Anyone out there have any insight with Google webmaster?s geographic target?
