Was there a panda update or something on April 16th?
I noticed a change on the 20th. Many of my sites were affected
What did the new update change?
Saw your thread then checked my rankings for some websites i don't promote anymore, and i can confirm that:
Like i said, i stoped promoting those websites months ago but i remember i used some penalized networks on them in the past. My authority websites are not affected.
Matt Cutts reported it as mistake and many rankings are back after the couple of days fall. I've got one keyword back today. It seems that they tried the update and mess something. Many sites were affected.
I've heard a couple things. Either Google is testing a new algorithm and this is temporary, or you just got hit with the Panda!
I had a couple of clients sites that fell for a couple of days or so but as of this afternoon...all of them are now back to the original rankings. Anytime that my rankings decline, I always wait a couple of days or so before I jump into panic mode. This helps me keep my hair
Definitely. They say it's a follow up of the anchor link diversity ratio. (no source though but based on rankings)
Wow this is good to hear. With so many sites getting horribly affected, its good that this was a mistake.
That being said, Big G is definitely getting smarter.
Well it seems like better to focus on site instead of ranking nowadays
I think they both should go hand in hand ever since SEO began (assuming you know how to create a site that will stick long-term).
Few of my sites are experiencing drop in SERP due to this update and yet to be back to normal.
I knew it - has anyone seen a blog post or something explaining the recent update?
My website rank down in Google. Have anyone notice whats the reason.
yea I have noticed a massive drop in traffic starting the 20th... like loss of 60% or more of my sites traffic is gone. sucks
maybe Google is testing a new algorithm or stuff like that. It really sucks
Down from Page 3 to Page 8. I hope things are back to normal soon.
My site hitted on 18th April, for 20 to 80
It could be the Over-Optimization penalty everyone was talking about. Several of my sites were hit.
