I'm one of the unfortunate ones who have lost traffic recently. Looking at my webmaster tools I see that in the links to my site tab, there is a site SEOprofiler dot com which has links (apparently) to at least 9 of my hubs.
I've personally never been to that site nor even heard of it. I tried contacting their support but its asking me to log on first.
So my question is...is that site legit and does anyone else have supposed links to their hubs from a site like that? And if not how on earth can I get them removed. I wonder if that is part of the problem why google no longer likes me.
I suspect your traffic downturn in unrelated - http://www.seoprofiler.com/bot/ - seems harmless enough.
Ok. Thanks for that. I've almost pulled out all my hair trying to get to the bottom of it. My pages crawled went from 130ish to zip.
Back to the drawing board.
I try not to worry it's something totally not within my control other than providing content. I hear there's going to be a 'disavow' button coming soon where one can 'disavow' suspicious links. I'm not sure how 'G' measures link worth but least we know those that are frowned upon. Traffic may turn around again with the next algo spin
