    For some reason out of my 20 websites that I currently make money off of via organic search traffic ALL my .co websites dropped out and were penalized for some reason during the last Panda update.

    The .co's are all on different hosts with different IP addresses. They are 100% different from each other in terms of content as well.

    Only the .co sites fell off. My .com and .org sites are doing fine. The .co sites were not deindexed but just fell off into the 500-1000 range when they all used to rank on the 1st page google for the last year for their respective keywords.


    Anyone still successful with .co sites?


    thanks

    Google doesn't discriminate TLD's. I have .co's and they are ranking fine.

    Its content/backlinks/onsite-seo that determines your rank.

    I have a .co that is ranking still for most of the terms it was.
    It's sat on page 1 for some but has dropped about 10 places down to page 2 for others.

    I'm just hitting it with different links now to see if I can pull it back.
    Think i've relied too much on one type of links. Need to diversify.
