It means that niche websites focusing on exact long-tail keywords having problem now?
I'm in similar situation.. no idea how to change it backI started to lose organic traffic since November 29. Every another day - worse results than previous day. Now I have 20% my old organic traffic.
Hopefully you can see how my question relates to your experience - despite niche and what is being done with outreach/link-building - SEO rankings are tanking. So how are other SEO service threads on this site not reflecting this? You don't have to answer this, posing this to the community but was using your quote.
Getting huge re-gains here. it's like a "recovery update" for me lol
7th of December - another update that pushed the rankings down for 5-10 positions. Just when I thought that everything was starting to stabilize. Now I am starting to believe that I am really lucky to have such a site that, after 7 years of no "penalty", now collects and is negatively affected by each subsequent update from google. Like its catching up for the "lost years". So each time I see a spike in SERP activity my rankings loose positions. There's a few keywords that I had on rank1 for YEARS and now these are deranked each week when update happens and are now heading towards page 4!! Not to mention that I completely lost hundreds of keywords from top100. Wow.
I hope google gets regulated soon.
Make him an offer...Look at my results. The image shows only 1 year span of data, but my webseite is 5+ years old and I have never experienced such drastic changes like I do now. Yep, many keywords were I was #1 are lost. But the weird part is, that it still fluctuates throughout the day. Sometimes I am in #1 with my main money page and later, the same day, I am #10 with some weird old blog post of mine. And no, there is no content cannibalization, because those articles are vastly different. And I see this pattern in many keywords.
I can also confirm that I see shitty websites with 10 RD links in TOP5 outranking multi-billion corporate websites in my niche. What the hell is going on. I never had any real competitors and now one shitty websites ranks for most of the keywords in my niche with 10 backlinks and I am loosing thousands every month... and he was just catapulted into TOP 5 in a very short time.
Well I add content almost daily. Now reaching close to 1000 posts. But new links are only the natural ones, did some outreach, but that's it. Link velocity surely is a factor, however I don't believe this has anything to do with the new google algo update since August.
