    It looks like my company website dropped rankings from the first pages to 8-9 page or above 10. None of the keywords that I ranked well stayed in the same position. Is it the newest Google update or just a filter?

    It depends...could be the dance but Big G did put out a msg today about 'webspam". Hopefully yours bounces back but unfortunately many sites dropped...Good luck

    Definitely the 4/24 update that you're talking about. People are up and down. Most people did not stay static.

    Across several of my niches, all of my low/high comp sites where I was aiming at a lot of keywords went up on the most valuable terms (all of them)
    All of the sites that had previously made me a lot of money (ones I had seriously SEO'd for 1 or 2 terms with lots of blog posts/web 2.0s, press releases etc) all dropped severely... even for terms I haven't marketed in around a year...

    Expertpeon, that is an interesting observation. Question: what is the tier II link structure for the ones which dropped vs. the ones that did not (e.g. scrapebox/xrumer blasted). Trying to see if higher tiers are penalizing lower tiers, and then affecting the money site.

    Every tier is like this Tier 1: Web 2.0s with videos (about 100 videos or so for this site on youtube) + Press Releases <<<< AMR and SB/Xrumer direct<<<< SB to AMR along with Xrumer

    Or like this:
    Tier 1: Web 2.0s w/ vids + PR + HQ Edu wikis etc <<<< About x10 web 2.0 pages in link wheels with 1 link to tier 1, 1 link to an authority site, and 1 link to another web 2.0 page <<<<< SB and Xrumer, sometimes SBing the Xrumer profiles.

    Usually tier 1 above had 1000-3000 pages and each layer had this x10 or x20

    So did I (more than a few) but I'm still very worried as any SEOer should be.

    My site has 1-2% keyword density on most pages along with over 150 articles written over a year, many are over 1000 words, containing pictures, dynamic text etc

    Still 2 keywords were hit.

    Do you use any redirects? Content Lockers? Anything like that?

    If not, then be hopeful. You might be collateral damage and your rankings may very well bounce back.

    has anyone considered taking a look at the sites that JUMPED for your keywords instead of bitching about your losses? we need to start dissecting this latest update ASAP.

    No no and no



    Had I done this a week ago, my site would now be in the literal toilet. I'm going to wait to see how this pans out. Every site I thought survived the most recent 16th update, is now GONE... nothing on page 1 in this ultra competitive niche has been there for over 3 weeks now.
