Re: site that lost long tail traffic in April 28th
This past Saturday (June 5th) I reported that my traffic has returned. It has since been 4 complete days since then and the recovery seems stable. Today is the 5th day and although it is still very early, all trends indicate that I will have another classic pre-April 28th traffic day.
I have done nothing. No link building since April 28th and added minimal content.
This just sounds like an invitation for the over eager scammers to get their foot in the door using a new bag of black hat hat tricks. Even with the best filters, we should expect to see more garbage appear on a more frequent basis. That is frightening. Sounds like trust is out the window in favor of fresh new content. Expect your site to be scraped and shoved down your throat by the next unscrupulous webmaster. Now that they know Google's new indexing scheme, the faster refresh will encourage this bad behavior.
Buckle up again!
Maybe not so because I'm sure Google won't make fresh content from untrusted sites appear. I think trust will always be there, just more even and fair. Encouragement for older sites to freshen up because the status quo has changed.
