My head is spinning, Panda 3.9.2, Panda# 20, EMD Update, Pengiun #3. Did I just waste the past 10 Months ? LOL My Affiliate site was not very successful but I was on the right track, after 10 months, over 1,000 Pages and over $1,000 of Content, Tools, Link Building, hours and hours of reviewing SEO... I managed to get on to Page 1 of Google for my main long tale keyword, the same keyword as my EMD. Over the coming months I slowly moved up until I hit #1 Spot, I was still and still am in the minus $ wise, and my keyword was not very profitable, making around $70 per month, but my confidence was good and I started working on a harder set of keywords moving up slowly page 3, page 2, bottom of page 1. On October 6th, my #1 Spot Keyword was moved to #16 which may as well be #1600, I get 0 Visits for that keyword now. My other 100 is keywords that I'm tracking pretty much dropped off the map losing about 80% of my traffic per day. My site is a pure affiliate site and has affiliate links on about 90% of the pages, do you think if I removed most of the affiliate links it would have any positive effect, I was thinking of having just 1 well optimised affiliate page and linking all my old direct affiliate links to that page. Do you think that would have any benefit or would I have more success pissing into the wind? Notes: Backlinks were diverse, 100's of different anchor tags and click here, website etc.
