I just saw my emergency survival kit hub go from the 80's down to 40- I didn't see any flag on it- it just dropped. After going back into it I realized that the checklist information that I had put in there from a gov. site actually had 4 of the same links in it- and including the one I put in made a total of 5- so I'm assuming that's why I got penalized. Now that it's dropped should I just leave it alone ( I removed the checklist) or do more revision?
Other than that checklist everything I else I wrote was original content
That was a shocker to see the score drop like that!
when it happened to me I changed somethings around but I left it unpublished for a week and the numbers started coming back up when they got up high enough I republished it but I bet darkside has some better tips on that one dorsi~cool~cya.
I would alter it otherwise it will stay penalised and traffic will drop.
It's rebounding since I took off the links- climbing back to 60 now. So I'll go back in and add the checklist without the links...lol...
Hmm everyday you learn something new here!

I've noticed that there is at least one post claiming to have gained a significant amount of traffic this week, but for me, my traffic has dropped by 50%. One hub, which at its height was getting over 4k hits a...
