    Sure, but that's just one of thousands of ranking parasites. Maybe you keyword stuffed too much or something, there's some many variables as to why something de-ranks. In general looking at thousands of SERP results it looks like Blogspot got a boost, but I might be wrong.

    Yesterday (14th January), I lost the 80% of the organic traffic (from 7ks to 1.2ks) of my recipes niche (Foreign country). All the content that I have was writted by myself, and I'm not using any spamming backlinks or so.

    Almost all my 1-3 position keywords went to the end of page one or two.

    what is the characteristic of the number 1 position in your niche?

    for examples how many times the keyword is mentioned in title? description? <p> tags? <a> tags? H tags? keyword density?

    I've been telling people that G monitors BHW and emails. Nobody still believes me.

    For every lost ranking someone else won ranking.

    How much traffic was it?

    Always follow BHW recommendations.

    Yes it can.

    Semrush sensor is done by hand.

    Good going.

    Big ones happen 4 times a year, roughly one every quarter.

    Ironic that you probably generated this text on wickedarticlecreator?

    Search console always shows quirks about 15 days before an update. It's a tell-tale sign they're changing stuff.

    Google is the Jeremy Button of search.

    They need to roll back whatever they did in May last year. I still see tons of problems in these SERPs

    Well if you lost rankings then it wasn't "improved" interlinking. Rethink your internal linking strategy.

    Fools who use gmail and google docs to buy links and get reports.

    You're a ninja, that's why.

    Anti SEO is what Google does from day 1. Everything they do is anti SEO. SEO hurts their ads sales.

    Your sites shall be hurt. There's no escaping it.

    You say that like you've never destroyed a competitor site with U$ 5 and fiverr

    LOL you can't defeat us bums

    I'm surprised you haven't been banned from BHW yet.

    Then someone lost theirs.

    OK

    Keep a closed eye and let us know.

    Webmasterforum sucks. They don't know shit.

    Someone else is celebrating. Search is a zero sum game.

    Same problem that I have. Some websites got hit from 500-600 visitors a day to 0, it seems manual penalty but I have no messages in GWT and all websites is correctly indexed

    I just checked one of my main keywords, that I went from 1st position, to the 15th.

    Position #1: Big site (Famous Magazine)

    - 1.300 words post.
    - Main keyword used in title.
    - Main keyword used in description.
    - Main keyword used 22 times.
    - No significant use of synonymous of the main keyword.
    - 5 H2 tags, where main keyword is used in 5 times.
    - 23 H2 tags, where main keyword is used in 12 times.

    Position #2: Looks like a spamming site. Multi topic (Apps (Whatsapp), games, Healthy, Geography, weight loss, religion).

    - 6.000 words post.
    - Main keyword used in title.
    - Main synonymous keyword used in description.
    - Main keyword used 77 times.
    - Main synonymous keyword used 63 times.
    - 45 H2 tags, where main keyword is used in 19 times, and synonymous keyword 10 times.
    - 45 H3 tags, where main keyword is used in 19 times, and synonymous keyword 14 times.

    * I just checked this domain in Ahrefs, and it is from a Seo Agency that is hidding backlinks to this domain in the footer of several websites of their clients, lol. You can only find the backlinks by looking to the code.

    # My website: Recipes site.

    - 2.000 words post
    - Main keyword used in title.
    - Main keyword and synonymous used in description.
    - Main keyword used 19 times.
    - Main synonymous keyword used 19 times.
    - 6 H2 tags, where main keyword is used in 3 times, and synonymous keyword 1 time.
    - 6 H3 tags, where main keyword is used in 0 times, and synonymous keyword 3 times.

    Hope it helps.

    Do any of you have White Hat websites with high quality content that significantly lost ranking?

    Really ? Is that really it ?
    That may be the reason why some people never get hit because they stay away from Google's products when it comes to SEO.
    I'm gona do that too starting from now.
    Thanks wise man ;)

    can u update your info and say how many times the keyword is mentioned in title and description? What about site_name tag.

    Also how many times is the keyword when u look at the source code?

    What about <p> tag. use this tool to find that info and others that I asked https://www.keywordsheaven.com/on-page-tool/

    Ironic? You've obviously been taking lessons from Alanis Morissette - if I were to use 'wickedarticlecreator' then that would be hypocritical - not ironic. You took such an effort to reply to so many posts yet have very little to say. I always right my own content and share tips on writing with others - for free.

    I respect your point of view and opinion - although I disagree with it.

    You may be onto something there.


    Was just a joke, no offense intended.

    That december update doubled your clicks and now you're on a roll. You did something right last year!

    I want that :)

    Well done fellow BHW. If you have an idea as to the slightest little thing you did to get that result, please can you share it with us? Thanks
