    Anyone notice any changes to their website rankings today. all my keywords were ranking about 8 keywords and none of them are found today like vanished from serp. is it google dance or can it be that the new update affected my site. I thought i wouldn't be affected my the update as i was still ranking till today morning and now all the rankings are gone. Any help and inputs would be appreciated. Thanks

    There was a big de-indexation campaign by Google yesterday, that might had something to do with it

    Really? So do I keep building links to them or upload some brand new contents? And also should I slow down the link building process?

    I see some change today but I can't tell what it is. Since we don't know the referral keyword anymore it's getting tougher and tougher to work specific phrases.

    So I am guessing they did some kind of update today and it is affecting sites in some ways. Anyone else experienced this yesterday or today?

    Today some of my keywords ranking came back to its positions. It was affected by penguin 2.1. But now slowly ranks are coming back to their positions.

    So strange, I made a duplicate of my site (like complete core file copy) and didn't change the content for about 24 hours due to time.

    My original sites rankings fell off the face of the earth. But the duplicate sites are ranking higher on google for the same keywords?!?! The duplicate domain is brand new.

    Whats worse, I 301'd the duplicate site.. and the rankings are maintaining (has been for 48 hours) wtf.
