People are trying to figure out this new change. I have watched these threads for a while. I keep saying to myself, "not Me". My sites are not broken. After Mayday there was small dip in some sites but overall in the months that followed, things got better. Much better LT traffic and lower bounce rate. But now they have done something different. As so many have said, it does not make any sense. People are trying to use logic and reason to understand this new change.
Many (including me) are frustrated. Here is my opinion. Just my gut opinion, so take it for what its worth.
Its my opinion that Google index is broke. Its not some new ranking, but a series of programing or design mistakes that have screwed up the results. When ever you have a large software project this is a danger. Maybe they tried to to much to soon or did not test it enough (how do you test a worldwide, mass population software AP?)
Of course I do not expect they would tell us if it is broken. But we can come to our own conclusions.
So if its broke and the Mayday version is the way its supposed to work, then any changes we make now will not help and more probably will hurt. What we should do is just wait until they fix it. Maybe our landlords,spouses,credit card, customers and utility companies will understand.
