    Good to know. I'll have a think about a few other things I take for granted and see what I can share.

    Your welcome, hopefully something you can keep coming back to.

    Maybe not so subliminal :anyway:

    It is nice to visually show clients the correlation between an update and their sites. It does have a nice impact and makes you look like you know what you are talking about :D

    Nice share, mate! I analyzed chart and I was able to track the dependence of the drop in positions. They started to drop just from January 13 and subsequently again I got my positions dropped around February 9 so now i'm completely sure that it was due to the official and unofficial google update, but I could not find any specific information about which aspects affected these updates therefore I can’t understand what exactly I need to fix. My only guess at the moment is the overabundance of keywords. Also the most remarkable thing is that sections suffered very much, and product cards themselves suffered less. Can anyone share any information regarding this?

    I had a site with similar issues (hit by the same updates) and recovered it yesterday. Like you, I was scratching my head but read on Rank Ranger (I think), that this could be to do with off topic content. So, I removed 2 sections from the article which talked about related products or features but were not 100% ontopic and within a few days it bounced back.

    It might not be the same for yours, but might be worth looking at.

    No problem, hopefully Google stays away from our sites for a few more weeks. Not sure I could take another update right now, the world is going to hell in a hand cart as it is!
