Search results are horrible now, its harder than ever to find what your searching for. Im seeing FAQ pages and Terms of Service pages rank on the first page for some keywords, other than that its amazon and ebay everywhere, some keywords amazon and ebay occupy the entire 1st or 2nd pages with duplicate title tags.
Pleased to say a lot of my rankings have improved again now and almost back to what they were. Unfortunately my main keyword is still not ranked anywhere
My rankings in the "normal" part of the rankings improved a bit. But I still get the absolutely garbage rankings half of the time I try to check them. Dont know why. Always trying it with anonymous tab and also on mobile. Hope it will go away asap.
Guys there was some update today?
can you give me the source where I can read about this update?
Nope, no official word but I'm sure all the SEO blogs will be writing about it soon. There was an update according to me 100% positive. What exactly I'm not sure yet but there is something going on. Health and finance niche is what I've seen affected so far.
Yeah, I'm seeing lots of movement in the Finance sector today.
I'm not in the financial or health
With the last update what happen like 3 days ago all my websites over 40+ have almost 50% drop in traffic, the same time, this is so weird never see this before.
Seems to me like AI is a child and it just started learning so everything is a mess now.
It would be months if not years until the search results become stable again, I guess.
I did switch to google ads to sell my products, I can't wait that long.
Well this is frustrating. Another 20% drop, this time hitting most of my competitors as well, not just me (Retail). Enough already Google
Same here, now spending $3k a month on Google Shopping ads now to try to supplement the loss in organic sales. Wonder if this is part of their master plan.
Google just playing with us
Indeed. I'm Swedish but living abroad. Since this morning all the results in my searches are in either Norwegian or Danish but now Swedish.
This is insane ... i never see before so many of my websites to get affected the same time by Google ( 100% of my websites over 40 is affected by the same hour/minute/second ) i was thinking first time the issue is come from my servers or histats ( I'm using histats im not good to allow google analytics on my network so they get more data ) anyway some of my websites who was stable for 2/3 years they drop to 70% less traffic and most of the other websites 40%/50%
Is funny how these big companies like big G and amazon etc they trust so much there own AI, and they place there AI out in public.
AI these days is shit and i can tell you this. Their mistake is placing an AI what they don't know what to expect from it, can fuck alot of shits. ( Bad people or people who start to get depressed by all these shits from G will create there own AI )
Google kinda forget us people is who make them where they are and all there data is steal from our websites, if people start to get mad of them and team up they can get very huge issues. but this is why they are not scared because people will never team up.
I just do not understand exactly how the topic relevance is measured by the AI. A beauty site of mine is ranked to # 1 for gel fingernails and for gel nails at >100 (#4 before the update) . The two terms are
synonymous. How can Google calculate the relevance of these two terms so differently...
Same here. Even more terms of the same synonymous, but completely different rankings. Not like #1, #3, #4 etc. where I could understand it cuz of competiton, but its like #1, #21, #46, #85, #4 etc. it just doesn't make any sense. And its fucking dancing all the time. Like every two days its going from #43 to #5 and then from #5 to #23 and so on. What the heck is going on with their crooked algorithm.
One thing is for sure; Those guys are playing a game on us. I am sure they want us to spend lots of money for ads - and I am sure the people are doing it. What else? Relying on this fucked up algorithm? No way.
that's easy. "gel fingernail" gets 260 searches per month. "gel nail" gets 201000 searches. Google doesn't care that much about those small keywords. they kicked us out from the bigger keywords.
but we got crumbs left on the table.
maybe they don't care about them at this point. or maybe they take that as well after some time.
