Can you share the niche?

Even though you won't see many answers, I can assure you that almost all see the same thing as you and I. Like I said before, I monitor a larger number of websites (30+ in my niche) that were clearly hit in May and all follow the same identical pattern. When I see some progress, they all do, when the keyword bleeding resumes, all see the same thing.

And what's Google going to do when I move all the traffic sources to social? It can kiss my behind.

Here are some of the winners of these two last updates (may and july). While I'm pretty sick of this .xyz subdomain spam, I have to say they did a pretty good job overall. Not to mention all these .xyz also spread adware/malware.

My traffic started to recover for one week but then those SOB's from google couldn't have that and released that recent update again. It seems traffic goes up one week then down the next.

I can't wait to shift traffic sources over to social and email marketing and then give GOOGLE the finger!

I'm slowly but steadily building up my email list of loyal followers.

But as i can see its from 23rd july to 27th july. After that there is in a sudden increase in traffic.

Thanks :)

I don't know that I put much stock in thinking that Google is broken per se, but the flux that I see on my own properties is normal in my opinion. I am seeing an upward trend on my end.

They actually giving us this information....


Content and quality questions
  • Does the content provide original information, reporting, research or analysis?
  • Does the content provide a substantial, complete or comprehensive description of the topic?
  • Does the content provide insightful analysis or interesting information that is beyond obvious?
  • If the content draws on other sources, does it avoid simply copying or rewriting those sources and instead provide substantial additional value and originality?
  • Does the headline and/or page title provide a descriptive, helpful summary of the content?
  • Does the headline and/or page title avoid being exaggerating or shocking in nature?
  • Is this the sort of page you’d want to bookmark, share with a friend, or recommend?
  • Would you expect to see this content in or referenced by a printed magazine, encyclopedia or book?
Expertise questions
  • Does the content present information in a way that makes you want to trust it, such as clear sourcing, evidence of the expertise involved, background about the author or the site that publishes it, such as through links to an author page or a site’s About page?
  • If you researched the site producing the content, would you come away with an impression that it is well-trusted or widely-recognized as an authority on its topic?
  • Is this content written by an expert or enthusiast who demonstrably knows the topic well?
  • Is the content free from easily-verified factual errors?
  • Would you feel comfortable trusting this content for issues relating to your money or your life?
Presentation and production questions
  • Is the content free from spelling or stylistic issues?
  • Was the content produced well, or does it appear sloppy or hastily produced?
  • Is the content mass-produced by or outsourced to a large number of creators, or spread across a large network of sites, so that individual pages or sites don’t get as much attention or care?
  • Does the content have an excessive amount of ads that distract from or interfere with the main content?
  • Does content display well for mobile devices when viewed on them?
Comparative questions
  • Does the content provide substantial value when compared to other pages in search results?
  • Does the content seem to be serving the genuine interests of visitors to the site or does it seem to exist solely by someone attempting to guess what might rank well in search engines?
So I guess they really do just mean 'better, original content'

Can you sum it up?

Google is destroying the internet and screwing webmasters over harder every year. Just under 50% of users never leave Google search as they already get the answer through snippets etc. A large percentage of the leftover traffic mostly goes to other companies Google owns such as YouTube.

As I said on another thread, I am not sure they will be going this way (to become an answering machine), since not clicking will also hurt their revenue.

However, if they will implement "answering" to certain keywords only (probably many millions), based only on their revenue figures (let's say, keywords without CPC), then it will be something for the federal authorities. And, of course, it's not hard to identify such behavior...

But in the end, becoming "evil" will not pay off, even if most of us will not be alive when it will happen :))

Just to add to this:

Quote from the PDF document:

"We want to get you out of Google and to the right place as fast as possible"

This is no longer true, 5-10 years ago top ten were links to useful websites providing the content. Now over 50% of the 1st page of SERP is stolen content from websites in a form of snippets and Q and (stolen answers) A. On mobile it's even worst. An endless stream of questions ...

Is it helpful? no, if you ask me if I look for 'best running shoes' I'd expect to see links to websites that talk about best running shoes, not an endless 'people also ask for' this is confusing and pure attempt to keep users on google without redirecting to a website that provides useful info.

If google was so good at detecting users' intent (they probably are) you would not see any of those 'people also ask for' on the 1st page of SERP. You'd see links to relevant websites. What happens is that they want to cover as much ground as possible related to a search query so the user gets the answer, never leaves google, and click on one of their ads.

If this is the way G works now to make it fair they should pay a commission (per impression) to the websites they steal content from.

Last but not least, G always says '... it's what our users want...' the problem is that they never show any data supporting that claim.

By not showing the data they can implement any change that benefits them, say it's what our users want and no one will know if this is true or not (an attempt to manipulate the SERP)
