UPDATE #10 So far everything is on track. I have published 8x 1000 word articles on the website. Google core algorithm update is live and is being rolled out to various Google datacenters. I don't think it is a major update. SemRush sensor shows zero activity in SERPs. I'll wait for a week to know the details and how people are hit by this update. Posted two spun articles on 2 expired tumblrs which I ordered and took link from those. I have also applied for adsense, waiting for their reply! Game Plan: Continue publishing articles. I'm also in talks with a potential partner/investor to start up another site in the tech niche. We are waiting to see the repercussions caused by this Google update. If everything looks fine, we might start the site!
