    I've come across many pieces of evidence that traffic got worse after February 8, 2017.

    Has anyone suffered from that update too?
    What are the consequences and what are you doing to do about that?
    Please share.

    Google doesn't confirm algo changes any more, but you're right there does seem to have been some activity over the last couple of months. I've noticed that thin/poor content sites aren't doing well, and people are suggesting that using deleted domains as pbn's is no longer effective. I haven't tested this though so I can say.

    Stick to having great content on your website and build good quality links as like always, you'll rank :)
