    Welcome to my world.

    Got struck down for all of my front page keywords. I hope it is temporary.

    Yes, Google rolled out a new algorithm change on October 14th. People are speculating that it is another part of Panda but that it is more catastrophic like the 'Florida' update of 2003.

    Read more on it here:

    Matt Cutts tweeted about it a week or so ago. And people were speculating on it for a while.

    So, it definitely happened lol. We just need to put our heads together to figure out how to get around it. Keep your eyes open.

    Yes, I got huge boosts in all my rankings for all my keywords and have started ranking for some stupidly competitive words even though I'm not targeting them :\

    lost a lot of long tail traffic. Most of that traffic seems to be sent to more trusted sites than mine. But the problem is that those pages do not give the information searchers are looking for.

    If there's one thing I've learned as an affiliate marketer in the last three year...

    Never trust google to provide a stable source of income.
