    If you feel your HP site has been unfairly targeted you can submit this form to Google on the newest Penguin update:

    For an interesting article on Penguin read here:

    The signs of a Penguin hit:
    A sudden drop in traffic by as much as 70%
    A sudden drop in ranking by as many as 20 places
    A note from Google in Webmaster Tools concerning the quality of your website

    Hope this helps some of the hubbers here.

      I think you missed the most important sign. Penguin hit on April 24th. If your drop in traffic was before then, it was the new Panda rollout and not Penguin. That form you linked to was for Penguin only.

      And understand that the form is not for reconsideration. It's only for feedback. So filling it out won't help you at all. Penguin was an algorithmic change, and Google has stated they will not be making any manual changes to it.

    It looks like there has been an unreported update that came out on the 27th.  I've seen some Hubbers feeling this and I've been looking into info on it....We reached out to see what folks have to say about it and if it is Penguin related.

    There's a blank form to be filled. "URL of a page affected by the update". Should I write my main page in HubPages, like: http://prasetio30.hubpages.com ? anyone has suggest me? my traffic drop up to 70%. If I fill the form and reported to google, do they help me to bring back my traffic?

      I would like to know this too. I think we just fill out our main page.

    Thanks, Paul. I'll be waiting a good news for us. I've been here for about three years in HubPages. It's like a comfort home for me to share my idea in writing. Thank you very much.

    Yes thanks Paul and culinary, my traffic decline was a direct result of Penguin but you are right to bring that up.
