    Are you saying Google's metaphorically killed your website? Or are you quoting someone? I'm confused.

    posting some analytics screenshots will help you a lot? Also did you run a link detox? or got an warning email for unnatural links?

    You really think that Google can understand and value every content on page? Or manual reviewer read every article on your site (can you imagine the time it takes to value every site this way?)? It`s all about onpage (content structure, internal and external links, image sizes and locations and other factors) and offpage seo (links to your site).

    Cheers

    While what you say about SEO is mostly true these days if your content is terrible that can be the death knell for any site, I am not just talking about the structure but the actual content. For example, if it is duplicate content then you will struggle to ever rank with it and if the content is so bad that the bounce rate is crazy high then that will affect your rankings also.

    Once you are sure that the content is original and that you have a half decent site layout then you will want to start on building some links. Do not use your site content for building links with, building links to your content not with it.

    SEO is not rocket science but there are definite good and bad practices and if you just spend a bit of time making sure all links on your site are live and that your content is decent you are likely going to see an improvement.

    If you had traffic and it's not diminishing then you need to investigate what has changed. Why would Google suddenly lower your rank?

    To get some real tips you should start with posting way more details like at least some screenshots of the traffic or even better the URL and some screenshots from Analytics etc.

    Then someone would be able to provide you with targeted help

    I have ranked several with semi pure shit content using Google translate and making huge silo structures with the scraped and translated content.

    Thanks for replying. How long do they stay ranked/indexed for, generally? :)

    Check "hard to rank" niches and if you know how to detect cloaked sites you can see first and second page result with autogenerated and pure garbage content. I personally never use handwritten and "high quality content" to rank (but it doesn`t mean that i show it to visitors, it`s only made for bots and crawlers).

    Cheers
