    I use to get 4,000 - 5,000 UV a day. On 6/24/11, my UV went down to below 1,000 UV a day and stayed around the 1,000 range.

    I'm not exactly sure what I did wrong. I wasn't affect by the other panda updates, nor did I do any backlinking during the panda updates.

    My whole site is unique content written by myself. I use wordpress. On my homepage, I sticky some of my posts - could this be the problem?

    Another problem I see it, my actual pages aren't ranking anymore, it use to be Page 1. Now my pages are no where to be found. Right now, I see my tags ranking instead of the actual pages.. (low rank e.g. rank 50-100) What is going on?

    I also noticed some of my keywords for some pages remains untouched which is weird.

    This site been around for almost 1.5 years. The website PR is 4 if that matters (after the new PR update). I don't think it is experiencing any dance of some sort.

    What should I do next?

    Help will be appreciated.

    Sorry to hear mate..As I see , you are not an unexpreienced person about these things.I was about to say maybe google dance , but u said you dont think so..

    Many people nowadays report some strange things in Google , some says a new algo update is coming already..Google changes its interface , +1 shit is introduced..so many factors at the same time..

    But one more thing maybe after PR update , your Back links weight changed ? How was the your BL s? Blast or manual , good links ?.. By the way , I dont think so the reason is on page factors.

    My website is really popular it use to get traffic from youtube, then I switched to getting traffic from Google.

    My website have many pages and they rank for many different keywords. So my backlink is really random for all my pages. At the same time, I do a lot of different things to my pages such as:

    forum profile, scrapebox (direct/indirect to 2.0 properties), linkpushing (using the service and my own linkpushing based on the service) - pretty much black hat stuff, but nothing too extreme like using xrumer (but I do buy high PR profiles time to time)

    I just want to know why. I look at Panda, which seems to be targeting farms which my website is not! I made everything myself.

    I just want to know the reason so I don't want to make a mistake again and start over.

    @etrader you ask about my BL PR, the hit took place before the PR update so I don't think it has to do with that

    I have almost the same problem.
    A few days ago i was having like 3400 links indexed by google(I check them with SEO quake on chrome)..
    Now a few days ago, I have 2,800 Indexed links.. The new PR gave my my website PR1..

    I have like 90% of my content unique, all written by myself..

    I have like 100 less visits per google (usualy i have like 200~250) now i have 100~150..

    Google is making what ever they want.. And with this new +1 shit, everything is mess'd up...

    Are you talking about your own website links being indexed? My links are all index still just not ranking for some pages, only tags... for really low rank.

    What is this +1 shit you're all talking about?

    Hmm maybe it's the url structure of your wordpress blog? Do the urls to your articles change over time if the articles go on page 2,3,4 ond so on?

    No it doesn't change, I'm pretty sure it has to do with Google some how...

    By the way you say it probably should be Google Sandbox. If your keywords were ranking in 1st page and now if you cannot find your page through out the SERP then it is something to worry about.

    Are you getting traffic from other search engines? Google is changing itself every few days and it's very sad of it :(

    Some of my keywords are ranking. Some of my pages dropped out, but my tags started to rank.

    Can't be Google Sandbox, pretty old site.

    Yes, I do get traffic from other engines. It is incomparable to Google.

    Give it some more time. Your page should be up within couple of weeks if you didn't do anything extreme.
