Can anyone explain what this means? My website is fairly new (Oct 2011), and since then I have been paying for articles with backlinks. I have finally reached page 1 for some of my keywords, but after this change, I can't seem to find where I have been kicked too! I realize that Google is turning off some parts of their link recognition, and how they report that they reflect the first position of a link to your site. It said they reported the average position of all links prior to this change, but what does the other mean? I don't understand about reporting the first position of a link to your site. Is all of that backlinking that I have been doing a waste?
