    Top graph. Site is a year old. Haven't spammed it hard. My web 2.0s are now on the first page. I haven't done any SEO on it in maybe a month.

    Bottom Graph. Site is a month old. 100% spam site.

    I do all my SEO. No services used.

    Ok lets all just gather up in a building and burn it down so we may all perish together because big-G gave us the reach around.

    I did an analysis on my 2 sites that were ranking top 2 positions for the same niche. Site A was ranking position 1 with stronger links from from a service provider here in BHW. It had higher percentages of exact match anchor text. After May 15 Site dropped to position 7. Site B had the same strong links but less than site A and had more diversified keywords with the exact anchor text same percentage as other LSI keywords and generic terms. Site B wasn't affected much. It's still in position 2 for target keywords. I am beginning to analyze that this update might have targeted sites that had higher rate of exact anchor text. So I will wait till sunday if I don't see ranking settling down I might remove some links and put more naked URL's and not focus on exact anchor texts. Will report back next week. I might get some feedback from people who might have been affected by this weeks minor/major update.

    I thought this earlier because comparing 2 of my sites... On page seo is the same. SEO strategy is the same.

    The only difference is that the site that got hit I haven't varied the anchor text a lot.
