So once the bot crawled you do you think it instantly fixed you?
Of course. You are too scary bud, thanks for the advice!
Did you see a correlation with schema data. I have been reviewing my nichè and so far I’m noticing some things with this.
Anyone of the peoples with web site issues have had an old domain that is properly redirected and maybe resurfaced after the update? check it in google search like site:YOURolddomain.com
I have one web site that has dropped others do play better than before. The websites case is in my opinion that somehow the old domain has been re-indexed and appears in main page and main site products category instead of the actually live domain. Just to think that if you click on the actual search findings you will get redirected to the proper live web page results. Anyway i have send google a help request about that and i am waiting to see...
Of course i have spend many many hours of a thorough investigation of multiple web site issues and any search console topics (not that it had many...).
I would be nice to hear your cases.
i guess google translate did not do a good job of translating your original word
I'm not asking for a handout, of course I know he wouldn't share a specific useful strategy for beating this update. Its just weird that he would post a useless comment saying his "small tweak" worked magic and then not bother posting a shred of detail about what he did.
This is an SEO forum, we talk about things that are related to SEO. What if everyone just posted "holy shit, this worked and improved traffic by 20%".... and then didn't explain a general strategy at all? LOL.
Yes I agree. It's a forum where people share. I have learned so much off here reading other people's stories what worked for them. Luckily the person shared his tweak which I'm grateful for. Thank you for sharing.
Nothing was weird about that. And he didn’t post anything that hasn’t been shared before either.
You can learn all the general things from SEO here of course though.
Here is my SERP Update. Looks like everything is back to normal slowly. Well almost...lol
What I did?
I just waited out. Site has no author bio. I guess it's because of the niche. It's humor or gossip site. So there's no need of "Expertise" imo.
Nice rankings. How old is the site?
Yes Google has latest update about , Medic" Core Update on Aug,1-2018
I'm still down 60% so it's time to try and fix it. But damn, take a look at dr axe, losing 8 million visitors, that's got to sting...
thanks. site is one year old.
I'm glad some of you have your rankings returned
My client's and my friends' website rankings have all returned too. One of my friend's site is about 2 years old and she is ranking way better than before. No blackhat or anything like that, just pure blogging and social media sharings and postings. Like us, she was frustrated and terrified when the update happened and I told her to just wait. She waited (since late July or so) till just a few days ago and her rankings and traffic returned as normal. So whitehat isn't dead yet, don't give up!
My rankings have returned too. But some are still bouncing around. All these 'ranking returns' happened during the past 2 days. So I would give it another 1-2 weeks.
And what we all did? Nothing. We all just wait and carried on as normal. Many competitors with junk content were wiped out... there are still a few hanging around but not as much as before.
So I would say the update itself does improve Google's search results - giving users quality content. Kudos, Google.
I doubt an About or Author page will help, one of my client's (whitehat) also has a press page, a landing page to his book, all his press appearances, and his site still dropped 50% (he's in the finance industry). His rankings are slowly coming back.
I will say this about the bightside of this update, it has given me more opportunities to position my other services (cross-sell) to my clients. Especially after I illustrate how relying soley on SEO is not a smart game plan - while positioning video, social media and PPC to diversify their traffic sources...
I just signed in but I've followed this Topic since the really beginning!
My website dropped like 30%. After it was fluctuating, some days more or less as before, next days good as hell after decrease, increase etc.
So for me its still dancing, but yesterday I had a solid day. Today its panned.
I will let it go. As other says, I am pretty sure its a matter of time. What really hits me bad is on the KeyWord Google Flight and variation for the french market, went from 6-7 to 16. Decrease my impressions by 10 000 a day. LOL - This one I really hope it will come back. My website is close to 11 months
A one year old domain ranking those positions for those terms? How did you generate initial traffic? Social media or other means? Amazing job if its legit
I have seen dance on one of my website others and my client's websites are all stable. Is that any news about the update recently I am curious to know.
My site is currently experiencing the "google dance" as well. It's quite frustrating as it seems I'm doing everything right yet I keep going down in rankings for my target keyword.
