just seen another update that pushed some sites even farther down the tube. 3 sites that were ranking top 5 now ranking on page 5 for their major terms. They were pushed to pages 2-3 on oct 22. They are really quality sites too. Since they are my competitors I am not going to complain one bit.
One competitor actually reached out to me yesterday. He doesnt really rank for the same keywords, but hes in the same industry and he was very desperate. Hes not a major player or anything, but he says he just makes enough to pay rent and bills and support his family. He pretty much just wanted to know he wasnt alone and some reassurance. Its sad really, I wonder how many people like him this is effecting. It stinks when google just rolls out some update and it effects the lives of so many people for better or worse.
