I found this website with a list of all the Google updates in the past couple of years. If you track your traffic you can organize it in which "era" it did well and which "era" it dropped. There are also links to explain what each update focused on. Hope it helps...
Thanks Mayre - Here's the quake that hit me: Panda 3.7 — June 8, 2012 (Exact date) traffic fall by 50%. My traffic has now come back up to around 80% of June 7th values. Let's see if there are any specific reasons linked on that post. Thanks again
I read this evening that the next few Penguin updates are going to be "jarring and jolting" for webmasters and SEO's. For those who were affected by Penguin, it could be a bumpy ride. Didn't it affect links and spammy seo?
Matt Cutts: "You don't want the next Penguin update."
"we're still in the early stages of Penguin where the engineers are incorporating new signals and iterating to improve the algorithm. Because of that, expect that the next few Penguin updates will take longer, incorporate additional signals, and as a result will have more noticeable impact. It's not the case that people should just expect data refreshes for Penguin quite yet."

I don't know if it will do any good but I tried.

I chose to not have my stuff pinned on Pinterest, so I do not know the answer to my question. I am just curious. Do you feel that Pinterest, with recipes, images, and other pins, diverts traffic from your hubs?...

This morning I received an email from a Hubpages staff member regarding Google snippets (ie, Google Answer box) with this link. I would just like to say that this is something VERY worthwhile. I have been working on...
