July 2007 Google SERP Changes

I am the owner of a large < specialized topic > news website. We have seen continuous good traffic from Google ever since we started, 5 years ago. However, on the 27th June 07 our Google referrals dropped suddenly to around 1/7 of what they had previously been. It has remained the same for each day since. We are still number one for < our main keyword phrase >, but all our article rankings seem to have vanished.

We have staff, who we pay each month with revenue earned from Adsense. Obviously, with the drop in traffic our Adsense revenue has gone through the floor. So now we are faced with the possibility of not being able to meet our costs in the coming months.

I guess it is possible, if this happened at the same time last year to other people, that Google may just be using the holiday season to make some alterations to their servers (taking them offline?) or something like that. It really makes no sense, so that is all that I can come up with.

It seems as if this has happened to a lot of other people. So, my question is, for those of you who have seen this before - do the rankings come back? If so, how long does it normally take?


A Worried Webmaster.

> It's falling daily.

My site is slipping weekly. About one SERP place per week for a top single keyword. Another single keyword, which is a euphemism, slipped a bit, too.

It must be the Summer Google Lab Project: "New Algo for Single Keywords."

(I wonder if they not only get their own special algo, but more frequent updates, too.)

Most of my two-word phrases are holding their own, or moving upwards rather nicely, after months of status quo.

3 of my well established sites have had the home page removed from the index. All internal pages are listed and ranked without change. Hope its a temp glitch.
