BHW EMERGENCY! BHW EMERGENCY! A New Google Update Happened Today Been hit? So have I. We need to work together to solve the mystery behind why our websites have dropped. So, lets compare all important/relevant metrics. Fill in the survey below. Feel free to fill it in multiple times for different websites. Then we can compare our different strategies, and analyze them. I will be starting a second thread surveying people who have NOT been hit. Please only fill in this survey if you have been hit. Organisation is key; otherwise our data will get muddled and it'll be hard to figure out which strategies work and which ones don't! 1. Website Niche 2. Age of website in months/years. 3. Would you call it a white hat site, or a black hat site? 4. How many pages of legit content (300+ words) is on your website? 5. Do you update content regularly (add a new article at least once a week) 6. Is it an EMD? 7. Do you use spun content in your backlinks? 8. What is the keyword density in links linking back to your money site? 9. Does your website have spun content on it? 10. Has only the root domain been hit? 11. Describe the penalty you have received. E.g. "I have 5 core keywords. Keyword 1 dropped from #3 to #46. Keyword 2 has dropped from #5 to no where to be found..." etc etc. 12. Describe your backlinking strategy. E.g. "I create 5 web 2.0's. I then create 10 articles and link them to the web 2.0's. I then blast the articles with 10k scrapebox blast, and bookmark the web 2.0's 5 times each. I ping all of the links. I also use a private blog network, and I drip feed 5 posts every 3 days. I use spun content in my articles/properties. I create the properties/articles manually. I bookmark the properties manually." 13. Any other relevant comments If we work together, we will survive this. Stay strong my brothers and sisters!
