    He clearly has no idea what he is talking about. He doesn't have an answer. Looks like they lost fucking control over the algorithm and crawler. "Its not a temporarily glitch" - no the search engine is completely broken

    Weird question, but is everyone here from outside the United States? It seems like almost everyone talking about this is European with the occasional Indian.

    The funny thing is what is ranking instead. For some of my keywords there are 15 years old websites ranking, Spun text Web 2.0 Tier 1 backlinks I made 3 years ago and some social bookmarks from Scoop.it and Pinterest are also ranking. If Google was reevaluating the niche/keyword and found those social bookmarks and web 2.0 better than my unique and original content than the crawler/algo is broken.

    Lol....his answer really pisses me off. There is NO reason a "re-evaluation" of our websites would make them jump from page 1 to ABSOLUTELY nowhere. I've been hit by algo penalty over the years, and I've already seen position drops. I have never complained about them. I checked my website, fixed issues, and waited for rankings to come back. Yet, the rankings were down a few positions, or a few pages.

    Here, it did not just drop, it DISAPPEARED. And, above all, GSC showing strange things for mobile and not being able to see that our website is perfectly mobile friendly and adapted to users on mobile.

    Pfff, for the first time in my SEO career, I have NO IDEA what to do. We tried to do the cleanest, best quality website, with high quality content, and yet, we get punched in the face. Seriously?

    Fixes something... Breaks 2000 other things hahaa. Maybe sites from 2000 are now the new "mobile friendly" sites. Though only one of my sites got hit which I think is the most optimized for mobile..

    Maybe bing will get more traffic now?! Their search results seem so much more optimized and I can find information easier then ob google..

    WTF is going on.
    daily basis my index is being removed.. all of the sites and it seems that everyone experiencing the same issue.

    We clearly need answer from Google tho, we can't just assume things, its a penalty or bug.. :|

    I do not think its a bug, it's google that we're talking about. if they had some bugs, they would fix it ASAP and let us know, right ?
    I mean.. why thooo why... :eek:
