How do I get "Guugle" to start giving me impressions again?

What the hell happened to my impressions?

  • #1 - Guugle saw a low click through or a high bounce rate and stopped giving me impressions

    Votes: 0 0.0%
  • #2 - I got hit with an algorithmic penalty

I started my site about three months ago. Below are my Guugle search impressions from the past three months. If the image doesn't come up, I'll just tell you. I saw a spike in search impressions, and then my search impressions dropped down to almost 0.

As you can see, things started out slow, but that's pretty normal. I started really slow with backlinks, and had mostly low DA/PA links, Social Media shares, and low PA 2.0s. About two months in, I kicked off a tiered linking campaign with expired high DA/PA 2.0s and a four URL PBN. I kept my first tier of links with fairly decent spun content, used different VPN locations for all of my logins and postings, and used the free CC cleaner in between logins. I also used IE or Mozilla for all of this work, and made sure Chrome was not running.

About a month ago, I saw a huge spike in impressions, and I was thinking, "Oh Man, here we go."

And then my impressions dropped off almost completely.

What the hell happened?

I am thinking maybe one of these things happened:

1) Guugle threw a bunch of impressions my way for my keywords to try me out, the user experience was bad, and so Guugle stopped giving me impressions. I found out a couple weeks ago that my site was wayyyy slow. The pages were loading in like 20 seconds. So, maybe users clicked, waited, and bounced before the page even loaded. I have since gotten my page load speed down to 4-6 seconds, but that damage may be already done in Guugle's eyes.

2) Possibly I got an algorithmic penalty from Guugle. There are no manual penalties in my Webmaster account. I plugged my site into a few penalty checkers, and they all came back clean. Moz Pro doesn't recognize any of my backlinks as spammy either.

If you think it was #1, how do I tell Guugle, "Hey, I know I blew it when you gave me a bunch of impressions last month, but give me another chance?" I have done a slight update of all of my posts and pages. Is there anything else I can do?

If you think it was #2, what's the best way to check? I have read about people that try to correlate an algorithm update with impression/click drops, but I don't feel like that's really going to give me a very definitive answer.

Any other ideas?

Update your blog posts and if possible, add a new blogpost and include the link of the homepage in it. And index it through google. Maybe, this way google will recognize your website's load speed.

I'm a little embarrassed to post this, but hey, maybe this has happened to someone else, so I better share.

So I went into the guugle search console and realized that I had not added my H"T"TPS version of my URL or my w"w"w to the search console. I added these and low and behold, virtually all of my impressions are going to my H"T"TPS and not my H"T"TP.

Thank god I didn't get an algorithm penalty.
