I think it is more due to the fact that people are 'working' from home at the moment.

In addition to traffic, Google's positions also went up strongly, by several dozen positions even. It is different if the positions were the same and the traffic only increased - then I think it would actually be due to quarantine. By the way, sorry for my English - this is not my native language.

Your language skills are better than most English content writers on BHW. Nothing to apologise about.

Have you built any links or made onpage changes recently, it could also be down to your hard work!

Corona Update hit a few of my websites. A few went down and others up. Same niche, same thing. Pure Google gamble.

I hope so - because I work a lot on the website. Especially since December 17, when the traffic on the site flew strongly down, but now compared to the situation before December 17 - + 500% of traffic

Don’t panic.this happens to all of us. This is a part of SEO. In fact, it’s one thing we can be sure of.

Weird thing for me: I still show up as #1 for many queries when I search from my location (Europe) however, as soon as I change my language to English and search location to US I'm nowhere to be found. It's weird because my content is in English and aimed at the US.

This is one of the most common culprits of a sudden drop in rankings. As we all know, Google likes to make changes to its algorithm, and as a result, your rankings might start to shift around.

My website got hit on April 21st, No Penalties in WMT, No other issues. suddenly pages are getting deindexed, while in WMT it says pages are indexed. @AzonGeek do you think my website will also be back as yours? i have made around 15 comment backlinks and nothing else. The domain Is an auction domain.

Please help!

One of my medical sites got hit recently, almost 30% of keywords got out of top 3... I wasn't doing anything blackhat, just posting hand written content.

My website also got hit recently as well in the latest update after I managed to miraculously turn things around and recover 25% of my traffic from the last update that dropped my traffic by 40-45%. I've lost around 300 keywords so far in only a week. I'm so pissed off at google. WTF is this shit? Google is a POS and needs to get taken down. They don't want good "user experience" for people, they only want to give top spots to either high authority websites that have existed since the dawn of the internet like forbes or websites that employ pure blackhat tactics like pbn's to rank despite having thin shitty content. They are trying to kill off small to medium sites that are trying to grow.

One of my sites was hit again at the end of April, the first one since February... as usual only 4 pages on google and a drop in mobile ergonomics.

ps : and this site was a new site launch early March ( no expired domain no backlinks 20 pages )

Damn, the same thing happened for me too also indexing issues too. I won't be able to see my crawled pages on Google, but in Search console it says Indexed but in reality it is not. I think Google's up to something that we can't anticipate how big it is.

Its ridiculous how things haven't settled and even went worse. Also funny how no one on BHW is opening new threads about Google updates, because it became a timeless shit show.

Just a brief overview about my current situation: money sites have been sent to page 4-7, web 2.0 backlinks, which I made 3 years ago are ranking #1 now. WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON
