    Hello all!

    I have a very -very- strange serps behavior of a website.

    This website have some good serps like main keyword #12 , secondary keyword #3, other keywords #3-5 etc.. Main keyword is homepage and all the other subpages.

    The website have links from private pbn , authority links from sponsored articles and other natural links to our articles.

    On around May 17(around that month google update) our website drops.. Drops mainly for the main keyword which is now dancing around page 3 and page 6. Also, some times in the serps there isn't show the mainpage( which is the one with the links) but some subpages which doesnt have links neither the content is similar!!

    The rankings of subpages havent affected or affected a little bit.

    For your reference : around April we install ssl and do 301 from http to https, google speed is over 90 and the links are good variations with exact,brands,naked,lsi..

    What's your thoughts? Onpage issue? About what?

    You heard it here first Ladies and Gentlemen. PBN links are officially dead. At least nobody has clocked onto my Commodore 64 links yet.

    There was no question mark, so you did not ask.

    There are exact anchor but are very very low. Most percent are brand , lsi and naked urls

    No spammy backlinks too...

    What to check onpage? What u think?

    2) Average Keyword density

    Most probably over optimization of the KWs or algorithmic link penalty, for the former Lower down the exact match KWs on pages and give it a week or two. It should come back to normal, For the algorithmic penalty, you gonna have to check if the PBN you are using got hit.

    For the overoptimization you mean from the pbn links to site, or the internal post keywords of the site?

    Google is handing out algorythmic penalties on a per-page basis much more frequently these days. They are also updating the algo via their AI on an almost daily basis. There has been to major "update" since what was called Fred (but was not an official update either).
