Hey everyone. I thought this thread might be helpful to some who use Web 2.0 properties as their money sites. After the latest G update, my web 2 properites got hit but not as hard as others have. My #3 rankings drop to aroun #20. My number #1 rankings dropped to about #9. Today things are getting better a bit. I'm up to #11 and #6. I dunno, maybe Google is just "re-evaluating" links to webpages or so. Anyhow, I thought of sharing the observation because first I thought that now my sites are "blacklisted" or something because of all the rumors that were floating around but that doesn't seem to be the case. Anyway, in case your interested, the backlink structure of the sites was: - Social bookmarking - Profile blasts - scrapebox blog comment blasts - Article submission blast That's it no second tier or link wheels and stuff. I'll update how my properties keep moving in the next few days.
