According to UK website The Register, Google may have downgraded tons of websites and web addresses during the month of October.Search Engines rely on special algorithms to effect searches. So was it just a bit of an accident with Google or, as "Foundem" claim, was it deliberate? And have you noticed any drop in your stats in October. This might be nothing folks, but then it is Google we are talking about.
(Thanks to Sabreblade who tweeted this and it got my attention.)
They do this every time they update. They always change a few things, do a little tweaking. So most sites see a rise or fall, sometimes bigger than others.
All my websites seem to be about the same, not going up or down much. One is picking up more than I thought it would, that's about it.
"They do this every time they update."
and they update 3-400 times a year (minor) these days, plus a few big ones, and the "standard" daily flux too
and then there's the continual user interface changes, adwords positioning moves, places etc etc.
certainly makes it interesting
One thing Google is putting more importance on lately is web page 'activity', or how often each page is requested, plus the number of different visitors (not repeat visitors).
This activity also seems to determine whether a particular web page remains indexed. I have 2 web sites, which have various pages that aren't viewed as much. When there's a lot of activity, the number of pages 'indexed' on the site can go up to the maximum, but fall back down to only a few with less activity.
Just one of many factors, I'm sure.

There may already be a thread on this, but I can't find it. So the two reasons I can find for the Fred update (9th March) were backlinks from ureputable websites and for websites which had a lot of advertising Some sites have apparently dropped 90% in traffic.I truly doubt that HP is going around...

We know that we've been badly hit by the algo update a. In order to reach at some constructive conclusion, I would like to study which all websites got in thought the changes. Since many of the sites got low rated and the traffic is still constant, some other sites might have definitely found some...

I have had some articles that for over 4 years ranked pretty high on Google, and now, since the latest update, other websites are outranking them. So I decide I want to learn more... What do these websites offer to outrank mine? I go on them, and this is what I see:-The articles are much shorter...

Hi everyone,Given the rough-and-tumble year we've had with respect to traffic (Panda), I thought I'd share my experience, and maybe encourage others to share theirs, too.I can't disclose exact CPMs or traffic numbers that allow you to deduce CPMs (violation of AdSense TOS), but I will share...
