So back in Oct/Nov a Google update (penguin 2.1GoF-urself) basically de-listed thousands of articles from my site right off of Google search. Basically, my site is a travel aggregator of videos, articles, blogs etc from all over the net. Its put together Flipboard style. No original content AT ALL....but it looks MARVELOUS . and gets good traffic too. Anyway, I'm off to find other ways to generate traffic. Twitter, Facebook, etc. Up until 3 days ago, I can't find an article from my site anywhere on Google search. Even searching my exact domain or one of the subdomains doesn't bring up my site - what that search does do is bring up thousands of other sites that have linked to my rehashed content. Twitter, Paperli, Faceook pages etc. But basically, I was dead. Then 3 days ago I put up a Google Plus page for my site. And start having my site auto post articles to the Google Plus page with links back to the site. Voila! Every article that is posted on Google Plus magically is also back in Google search for the Google Plus page AND on the original page. Not only that, but they are ranking! with a date limited search to the last 24 hours, week or month, they are ranking in the top 20 and some are outranking sites like Tripadvisor (based on long tail keywords) and are top 10. No SEO, no backlinks no nothing. Is this short-lived or does google love itself so much it forgot how much it doesn't like my site? Should I blast links to the Google Plus articles LOL? But seriously, will these links help resuscitate my site?
