    I am looking for some advice on a site I manage. The site has been around for a year, has good rankings, about 300-500 visitors a day. All unique content and a good website.

    On March 8th my traffic from Google dropped by about 90%, the site is still listed in Google.

    I don't want to post the URL publicly here, but will pay $50 bucks to whoever PM's me and helps me figure out what the problem is. I will announce in this thread who I paid the money to.

    Really would appreciate any help. PM me and I will share the link with you.

    Have you been tracking where you rank in google for keywords?

    Your placement may have changed with the new algorithm changes.

    90% is no laughing matter, google must have noticed something he doesnt like, how black hat was the site overall, what methods did you use to promote it, Im sure you can get help by just providing some information on the thread.

    Hi thanks for the responses. The site isn't very black hat. Mainly white hat seo to promote it. We were getting ready to really promote and start working on the site, but then this happened.

    I guess no real harm in sharing the domain. Maybe someone can help me see something I am missing.

    marijuanaconnections dote cm is the website

    Again March 8th the site got hammered by Google, the google traffic dropped by 90%.

    Hmmm, I wonder if G has some type of "moral" penalty? LOL. I wish I had some answers for you OP. What are you relying on to determine that the traffic fell off 90%? Your c-panel? G analytics? Other? It is possible the stats you had before weren't that accurate and things have been "reset" to a more "realistic" number? Just throwing ideas out there...

    Lol..I thought about G might have a moral thing, but there are tons of other sites in the niche. We were looking at G analytics. We saw all our first page rankings drop off completely.
