Ok so this has been happening a lot lately... we have a post that goes viral as something is mentioned on tv that relates to our specialty... we have been sitting #1 now for a long time for this post term. all of a sudden the traffic blows up to like 5000 users at any given time... 10 minutes later we get bumped from #1 to like 3 or 4 and now in the #1 and #2 spots are crap sites that can not even handle the traffic (getting too many requests or page cannot be displayed) WTF G00gle? I thought you want a good user experience... Seems to us every time something goes viral all is good on our site as we have huge servers that can easily handle the requests but all of a sudden we get bumped down a couple spots when something goes viral? Anyone have any ideas at to wtf? Also, part 2 of this rant: About a week ago we did have a server issue and went down for about a day... we realized that we had a opening in our theme/wp install we were using that was allowing a mysql hack attack, (it was not reported or reporting in google, we caught it very fast) anyways, we wiped the server, went with a new better, faster, lighter more secure theme. We did have a bout 200+ 500 errors in GWT but all was fixed within 12hrs (no pages were de-indexed). But now for over a week we have lost all of our internal pages rankings that we had. We had several posts on page 1 sitting 1-3 now the posts are all at the bottom of page 1 if at all. Anyone have any ideas on this wtf? Thanks Mates!
