    Greetings!

    Let's get right to the point. I have a gaming website that earns a couple of bucks per day. This past December, the site earned over $700 just with Google AdSense alone. But about 2 months ago, I lost ranking for two of my main keywords. I was ranked 2nd and 3rd, but now, I am no where to be found. I went from 3000 UV daily, to about 600 UV daily. Also, revenue dropped as well.

    What should I do? I should also mention that the site is mainly for kids who like to play games at school.

    How do I scale this? Anyone got any experience with arcades?

    All help is appreciated.

    Arcades are had to rank because there's very low content and flash is being killed off.

    You could try one of the SEO services in the marketplace, but I would sell out and move on if it was me. Unless someone knows of something I'm missing...

    Have you checked the backlink profile of your site? Done any sketchy SEO? Might be a Google update that penalized you, might be some competitor trying to bring you down on purpose.
    EDIT: That's why @Society Girl is a staff member and I'm not. I give you generic SEO advice, she tells you what your long-term perspective is. And it obviously makes sense. Not many sites use Flash anymore... Now that I think of it, I wonder what's gonna happen to Newgrounds...?

    Well, when you don't have anyone to answer your questions on BHW, you Google it. Here are the results for "how to check backlink profile": https://www.google.lv/search?q=how+...rome..69i57.4590j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8

    Couple of pages:
    https://moz.com/researchtools/ose/

    and

    https://monitorbacklinks.com/seo-tools/free-backlink-checker

    And here's a page on how to conduct a backlink analysis: https://searchenginewatch.com/sew/h...ilding-101-how-to-conduct-a-backlink-analysis

    From 2013, but the fundamentals should be more or less the same. Good luck!

    Haha, I try!

    Newgrounds has articles and is moving/moved to HTML5 I believe, which can have tags/metadata to help with ranking. Also, they have a HUUUGE community, so the content writes itself in some sense. With arcades, you kinda need a forum to get content on there, or a blog or something that give Google something it can actually read.

    You could try flip it if you've made a profit and a decent ROI.

    There may be some newbie on DP or Flippa who will buy it.
