Wow. Right after the latest Google change, my tourist site got smacked big time. All my top ranking pages were gone.
Suddenly today I am seeing all my pages back right where they were before!
That means tons of first page listings that had been gone. So the question is,,,, why!???
Is it just a fluke, and tomorrow they will be gone again? Ironically just last night I decided to display a automatic slide show gallery on the home page that is built into this theme.
So now I'm not sure if it was because of that or not. If not, will my site go back to bad rank now that I changed it again? This is so frustrating!!! But it's nice to see my old rankings back.
Is anyone else seeing this on your site or hubs?
I hope it remains so for you. As for knowing if Google fixed itself? I wouldn't have a clue.
Thanks. I am also seeing different image ads on my site also now. I know they give sites that they deem of "higher" value better and more ads to pick from.
So that makes sense to see more ads now that my rank seems to have gone up. I sure hope activating that gallery is not going to reverse it now!
It could also be what fixed it. But more likely it just needed time. However this could also mean you see more normal searches if they backed off a bit.

I find this all so depressing. Can anyone tell me how long after filing a DMCA complaint does it take to resolve these issues - or is it as long as a piece of string?How does earth does one motivate oneself to write more hubs when this continues to happen.

I've seen a lot of post on here about all this linking stuff to get your hub or blog or whatever to rank better with the SE's. But what about getting links purely for the traffic of the links?I get over 2,000 hits a day on a site of mine just from the links. Most links I get I do it primarily for...

I kept seeing this site coming up when I was searching for duplicate content but finally decided to sign in and see what the h-ll it was about. What a shock that was. Thousands of articles being sold that belong to other people. Move the PPP to view the link. I put that in to dead the link....

Lately I have noticed how most of my articles that have been there for a long time, are being marked as not featured. And even after trying to "fix" them they are placed in the same stage over and over again. Considering the kind of "pay" we get for our effort, it seems kind of...

I love HubPages, I feel that I have learned so much here and my confidence in writing non-fiction took such a huge leap when I was invited onto the Apprenticeship program last year. I have met some wonderful people here - both staff and other Hubbers. But as may other people have said, the idling...

I am not completely sure if this information is 100% accurate but it is from a marketer I tend to trust. What do you think about this.........http://mattsmarketingblog.com/seo/google-stoops-to-a-new-low/
