    After 7th March google fred update my website hit badly.
    I have 170+ posts. It was rapidly growing website(now 9 month old site). Almost all main keywords were ranking under 100 position. 60% posts main keyword were ranking below 50 position. 25% were ranking below 20 positon. And 5% keywords were ranking no. 1 page.

    After fred update, I have lost almost 80% visitors. In this 1.5 months I only able to see 20% maximum recover(still 60% loss) for a few days. Now, almost constant at 72% loss.
    I have lots of post so i cannot update all post at a time. But, applied various theory on few posts. But, I have not seen any dramatic improvement.

    What I did so far:
    1) No duplicate issues (Tags, categories no-index for my website).
    2) Backlinks anchor text ratio maximum 12% of naked url. All other anchor text ration less than 8%.(According to ahref).
    3) Deleted any affiliate link from first paragraph.
    4) My most of the posts keywords density below 0.5%. I have seen a few of my competitors ratio more than that but still ranking.
    5) I tried to reduce affiliate link but not seeing any notable improvement.

    What my feeling now:
    This google update directly Hit my homepage not my any specific page. Thus, affiliate link, keyword density, backlinks anchor ratio etc isn't the main reason.

    Reasons:
    1) I am using https://demo.tagdiv.com/newspaper/ this theme with exactly same demo of my homepage. Look closely, Homepage each post outing single posts with exact title. And it has more than 70 links of homepage.
    I had similar menu too but later I removed that and added only categories as menu. But, didn't show any improvement.

    2) Homepage backlinks was 50% and one post has 35% backlinks(Actually, I wanted to rank this keywords because it has good amount search volume and I ranked this keyword before on other site and got better result than any other) and only a few post have 15% backlinks. But almost 70% of my posts wasn't any single backlinks but still ranking below 50 position(few were top 10 without any single links).

    I wanted to create more authority by creating of my homepage links.
    But Later,(after fred update) I realize homepage backlinks should be removed and instead that directed to the single posts. Because my homepage wasn't any content only posts link. I reduced homepage backlinks and now only have bleow 25-30%. I have completed that process almost 7 days ago but still not showing any improvement(Most of the backlinks came from guest post + forum links). For guest posts i request webmaster to change the homepage links to single post link. Who took money for guest post they did that without any questions.


    3) I think this could be main reasons.
    My domain name has "best" word. And my almost every post link have best word too. Like bestexample.com and other post bestexample.com/best-one, bestexample.com/best-another etc.

    Basically, My domain name still brand-able (No search volume for was for domain but included one of the big category keyword/name).


    Now, What i want to do:
    1) Bought a new domain. This 3 word domain doesn't have any kind keywords.
    2) I want to redirect my existing domain to new domain.
    3) I want to make homepage statics. I will write my 15 main posts(each post 100-200 words) unique description and link-out those single posts.


    Please suggest me. I am doing right or wrong? What will be your suggestion?

    That's mean sometimes don't work. Risky!!
    How much time took to recover your site. I just want to know how many days need to wait to see that this redirection working or not.

    And have you any 301 redirection tutorial link?
    I was thinking copy all files + database and duplicate all thing with new site. Then using old domain httaccess file i will redirect new domain?

    If you site has a lot of backlinks ,I think it worth trying 301 ,my site take about 7 to 10 days to get the rank back

    I have done mist
    I have done mistakes here. I guess. Because, I have used lots of keywords rich anchor text but my competitors didn't that. They have used lots of generic word. If i start now manual blog comment do you think it will be solved?
    After reading above what do you think that I should redirect new domain or stick with old domain?

    EMD or having 'best' in it doesn't really matter. One can rank well with or without it. And having 170+ posts doesn't guarantee top ranking. Your website might be over optimized for the keywords you target or it maybe links issue. If your site is over optimized for the keywords that you're trying to rank, 301 redirects won't help you as you basically will be submitting to google the same posts. You might see an improvement in the first few days only to see it go back to where it was before a few days later. If it is links issues redirects might work unless you have some kind of manual penalty. Either way, before doing anything I'd take a good look at onpage seo.Try to switch things around and see what will happen.

    P.S. If you target blue, red and yellow widgets with 170+ posts that's the problem right there.Don't know if this is the case, just throwing some ideas ....
