    Hi there,

    I have seen a reduction in my visits since Penguin 2.0 released. I don't know if it is the cause of the reduction in my visits, but I hope no. What do you think?
    It is a spanish blog and as I know, the new algorithm affects in major part to english sites.

    Do you guys have experimented something like these in new sites?

    Thanks

    Yes, as it is a new site, by first it wasn't located at very good positions but I have checked them and a lot of the queries had disappeared. I have great unique content on site so I don't know what had happened.
    By the moment, I haven't received any organic visit since the blog has been created.

    Like MachineLord says, give it some time. Also get yourself something to accurately track your keyword rankings..... Please don't forget that rankings are always dynamic. Shit is going to change all the time. It doesn't mean Penguin or Panda, or anything. New updates new links new competition, SEO is always changing. If you get knowcked out for all your keywords, yes you have penalty.... everything else can be worked with and fixed.

    Thanks for the info! I will wait for some time and we will see what happens.

    Just now I have three softwares to track my keyword rankings. Which one do you recommend me?

    - Rank Tracker (SEO Powersuite)
    - Traffic Travis
    - LongTail Pro (NichePursuits)

    Thanks again

    You mean rank tracker says the site is not in top 100 for your keywords? Or there's some error? In the latter case contact their support - they reply really fast.

    I have reduced the number of keywords up to 10 and none of them are showing in the top 100 results when checking with Rank Tracker. There is no error, it is just a matter of something that doesn't allow my page to rank higher. I don't know what could be happening.

    Thanks for your help!

    Is the site verified in Bing or Google webmaster tools? If so you may have received a warning of some kind. If you didn't, it's probably due to the young age of the site.

    It is verified in Google webmaster tools and it doesn't give me any warnings. I don't know what is happening. It is really awkward.

    Check the errors page. Maybe your server was unreachable, or you have too many broken links(check 404's report on GWT). There is some reason.

    Other than that, results have been dancing lately...give it some time ;)

    Agree, check all technical specs, maybe hosting was down,
    about positions, I got 2 new sites(1 and a half month, 2 monthes), different niches, different languages and significant drop in impressions and visitors after P2, they are not stable and trends down.
    Just keep it calm, keep it going, try to gain traf from other sources, not from G.
    Cheers

    There is no error in Google Webmaster Tools. My content is 100% original. There are no 404 error as I use a plugin for Wordpress that redirects all to the main page. I can't find the reason for that...
