Right when one of my white hat blogs started climbing up after 1 year of hard work, Google decided to surprise me with a gift.

Now, a villain is born who will keep posting AI articles on other websites.

I don't get why people still do SEO. If you had used your time to build a social media following instead of this, you would've gotten 10 times the impressions and your traffic source would still be there.

I mean bro, you got 701 clicks in a whole 6 months.

I dont mean that in a bad way, but I just wanna ask if you checked what exactly knocked off, because a single post could be bringing all that traffic and would obviously look like a giant algo hit if it fell.

my condolenses in general.

Any link building at all? even if it was just "foundational links" kind of spam?

Did you recently add google indexing API?

Anything you think might be the cause than you can share for us?

Keep in mind it is not unusual for a site to dip at the start of an algo update, then be returned before the update even ends.

Is this a lost cause too? Traffic didn't drop to 0 but did take a nose dive. Average position dropped by around 3 points too.

have you checked if it is specific posts or the whole website yet?

For the most part my sites are having normal growth but seeing people get hit obviously gonna make me curious to try and avoid it.

my Journey site has for some reason greatly increased traffic this week, either seasonal related, or core update related, idk why yet.

I have not posted about this yet in the journey itself (nor revenue increase post) cus im still looking around what is happening to others. However, it is very clear

this is a high jump for a website this size out of nowhere.

All my websites are currently having similar increase or just normal growth rate, so it is confusing to me what im doing right or wrong without

something to compare to that is going down.

Or you can simply do it both.......

Social media can still, and argueably easier mess you over the same as SEO.


We are slave to algo either way, some of the "people" that still do SEO are killing the game, no need to declare your money maker dead.


Dont compare the issues people who are just starting face to the people who have been at it a while.

I personally feel seo has always been more stable for me than social media, but social media scales infinitely faster.

Why do people still invest in crypto when so much people lose money? simple, not everyone is losing money.

Bro trust me. Everything was right. Google doesn't need reasons to hit websites. It is not my first time. What I know that for a fact is that if my websites had spammy backlinks and AI content, it would have been doing much better.

Ill just need to take your word for it, also, dont misunderstand, I dont mean "foundational links" kind of spam as a bad thing.

It is normal for websites to have some level of spam links on the web, some people argue that having a profile that is too clean is bad.

I just want to know if you had them or not so I have a mental picture of what the site was like without you actually sharing it etc.

Sorry if it seemed like an overly right vs wrong list of questions.

No brother. I only have 13 backlinks in total. All gained naturally due to having super high quality content. Some were from legit blogs and some were from niche related forums.

I didn't say it was dead, it is just not worth it.

I didnt say you said it was dead, I said SEOs killing the game dont need to declare it dead.

The "your" does not refer to you, as I have no indication you are in that group.

by extension, I still think it is "worth it"

We can agree to disagree

I was mainly responding to "I don't get why people still do SEO"
