Dropped like a hot potato - what happened?

    One of my stronger performing hubs (the Nutella one - go figure) has been DROPPED! Pretty much since the beginning, it was in the #3 spot for 'easy nutella recipes' on Google as well as in the top 5 on Yahoo. As of yesterday, almost all of its traffic stopped dead. I went to Google and it's not even ranking in the top 100 anymore! And on Yahoo, it's gone as well. (It's still on page one, but not my actual hub. Just HP's "Hot Hubs" thingamajigger.)

    What the heck???  Did I piss off the Google Gods or something? I mean, it's Nutella for pete's sake!

      There is only One God. Of Google. Gobbledygoogle. He's a funny ... deity.

      You should probably make some sort of sacrifice to Him on the Google alter.

      I'd suggest you sacrifice One Free Gift and perhaps three Antacid Tablets.

      He likes freebies (its a God thing) and suffers from IBS.

      Hope that helps big_smile

    It's the nature of the game. Most likely it will be back in a day or two. smile

    If you check out the forums online you'll see a lot of people complaining about Google's algorithm changes.
    Some of my blog sites(correction, all of them)took a beating in the last round.
    I went from 10,000 hits a day on some to 1,000.
    Just hang in there and keep plugging away.

      Well you just cheered me up. At least my other blogs' traffic has remained stable!
