    Hi all,

    I have a site that scored pretty nice in google untill the mayday update.
    Keyword in the url and getting 400 to 600 unique a day. Filled with affiliate produkts, build in wordpress so each article has its own page. Made and bought some backlinks and tadaa there you go. made around 10 to 15 euro a day with adsense and sales on affiliate stuff.

    All of a sudden i dropped from top10 google results to around page 89 and now i am trying to figure out what caused this. Only 30 or so uniques a day now. The drop started on may the 18th and since then i've added more backlinks without result.

    Am i slapped by google or does this have to do with the mayday update? And if this is caused by the mayday update what can be done to overcome this?

    The goal of the mayday update was to stop low quality pages from ranking for long tail terms.

    Your page definitely sounds low quality, so that's probably what happened.

    You need to ask yourself this: "what value does my page add over somebody just going to my affiliate websites?"

    When you have a good answer for that, your rankings will return.
