    All my sites that i've done in January till 31.01.17, googlebot now attacks with 1 million request per day per site, and this sites losed 30-50% traffic.
    And all my sites that i've done since 1st February till now, googlebot send max 500 requests per day per site and this sites looks like banned by google.
    Have someone the same problem?

    Yes, you have to setup the crawl rate.

    Google is owner of all ip's that I found in logs.

    Crawl-delay: in robots.txt is not affect to googlebot.

    I found this in Google Support:

    To limit the crawl rate:
    On the Search Console Home page, click the site that you want.
    Click the gear icon , then click Site Settings.
    In the Crawl rate section, select the option you want and then limit the crawl rate as desired.
    The new crawl rate will be valid for 90 days.

    But now, I have a question. Why googlebot crawl my sites with heavy speed and I still lost traffic from march 9?
    I don't know if it's good.

    We moved to a new server with more CPU, but it is still growing, but on some webs its go down a little bit.
    I think we need understand what we do similar with our new sites which google don't attack.
    Can you tell theme of your sites? (my theme is adult)
    Do you use any kind of boosting sites on start?
    Have you generated content or its 100% unique?
    Do you use advertisnig network on your sites? And which one?

    I think New sites google marked like PBN, but we do not have any obvious signs of a PBNs.

    1. same theme
    2. ping+branded web2.0
    3. content is not uniq because tube dumps were used. 80% of this niche using same non uniq content and still sitting in top 3.
    4. No ads on new sites. Mainstream ad networks on old sites.

    Are your sites backlinking to each other?
    Do you have big text/articles on your pages?

    also google fucks adult/download niche in this update, it's a fact.

    No, uptime is 100%. I don't know anyone who have normally indexed after 9 of march. I know that this niche is fucked up. You can try to search '**rn online' in google com and you will see where are all traffic going now. I have no idea how to boost new sites. It seems that previous boost methods not working now.

    Maybe we need to wait 8-15 of April and G will shake serp again and fix some bugs...

    Sanne here... None of the backlinks I am posting have been indexed. Mostly spammy backlinks, but they used to index just fine in the past

    People creating (automated) backlinks in March can you please check if they get indexed? Do you use an indexer or let them index manually?

    If google gets into an infinite loop while crawling your site only part of your site will get indexed before Google quits. Look in GSC under "Search Appearance > HTML Improvements" for duplicate titles and descriptions. These will give you clues as to where your infinite crawl is happening. Under "Crawl > URL Parameters" you can fix these issues by letting google know how to treat pagination, click tracking, sorts & filters, etc.

    As a negative SEO attack people can point a domain at your server and if your configuration displays a default website then you will take on ALL the bot traffic from the domain. When done with many domains you can be swamped by bot traffic.

    This isn't always an attack. I've had cases where the CEO of a company purchased a domain and pointed it at the website without knowing it was toxic. It can be self inflicted too.

    seems that tier 1 of my links posted in march was indexed like usual.

    in this situation googlebot != growth of traffic and also index != traffic in 2017.

    You're right. Except I don't want traffic or index.

    There are other reasons why you may want google to notice some change in your site ;)
