    Yeah Google is on crack right now, just going to there homepage I'm being located in another country of google like google.com.cn vs google.com. Though the computers location and ISP are in the USA. Stupid Google.

    Not to mention some odd serp results. I'm sure there working to fixing it since the update.

    I don't think so. I still have all my rankings for now, and I am still ranking new sites/pages as early as this morning.

    it is a numbers game, it always has been, if you have enough links it will count.

    The comment about profile and comment links being worthless is funny...If Google could figure how to block those it would kill the rankings of so many BHW member's sites. As long as article links are solid, I will be fine though.

    This stuff is going pretty weird here. I just got dropped even when I got some good feedbacks from my visitors and some natural links and recommendations. This sux!

    One thing I will say/ask is why would one particular site be singled out, while all my other sites remained untouched with regards to ranking in the Big G?

    Similar SEO has been done to all of my sites so I'm perplexed at the moment. Will be researching to see what exactly has been done to the site slayed by the Google Gods which has not been done to the others. Hopefully that will help to pin point the footprint. The odd thing is 2-3 days ago the site was absolutely destroying the SERPS, I mean #1 spots across the board.

    Though from an international perspective the rankings are completely untouched on this site which has been singled out. So the issue only really relates to Google.com aka USA ranking.

    same thing happened to one of my sites. I have the last rank check as #7 at 2011-02-14 01:51:41 then 4 hours later all pages disappeared from rankings.

    I've been blasting backlinks with sb for about a week. Maybe thats the reason

    We'll see

    I mean check these out for size

    [​IMG]

    I dropped 127 spots since Feb 1st and as you can see that graph was steadily at around #3-5 spots in Google. I haven't been building as many links as I normally do, but the link building has stopped either.

    Now this one is even more interesting

    [​IMG]

    This keyword was ranked #1 for over 8 months and now by market samurai and manual search it can not be found after late January. This term was clearly where I wanted it but after the update who knows wtf happened?

    Though again if I were to search these keywords internationally they are still ranked #3 and #1 like they used to be in the US aka Google.com.

    Anyone got any idea's?

    This is serious, I hope everything goes back to normal as even my major white hat projects have suffered a considerable drop, causing about 25% less visits.

    Funny... Gi's a link Boss... pleeeese.

    Actually I think Google have been having a hissy pissy fit for some time. I reckon FB will sink their battleship soon enough as more and more folk start trading internally and not bothering with Google and its stupid schizophrenic 'one rule for big spenders another rule for poor people 'and a different set of rules every month.

    I'm even thinking about saying bollocks about links to websites and instead just spamming my phone number so folk who want me to ..... their stuff can just phone me from wherever they see the ad. Nothing a good answering service couldn't handle and even when folk find my main site, they have to ring me anyway.

    Affiliate marketing is just a dream of easy money. Google! pah! they were great once... Before they got too rich and arrogant. they used to love the long tail... they used to worship adsense and adwords spam,, ooohh it was money money money for them.

    Look at the internet now. Its full of shit mostly made to appease or bend their billions of contradictory rules. Fact is, we all need something new.

    ooo oo they'll strike me down again for being a f'..cking outspoken guy, but hey, what's new there? Stamp on my balls and see if I care... again you m...fu...kers! I'll find a way to keep the phone ringing anyway! :(

    They have figured it out, well to some extent they have. Look for changes in rankings for sites that heavily depend on backlinks to be changing drastically over the next few months...
