Something really BIG changed yesterday about midday. We are still in triage mode here covering our basics. We saw a huge 10-20 drop in almost all positions for our biggest and oldest site.
It doesnt matter if it is all 100% unique with tons of backlinks and really well laid out or simply an image. Everything got whacked.
Our out of date non unique ad filled sites are humming along FINE.
So whats the message here Google? Write an indepth article that takes 3 days to complete and is linked to by hundreds of companies and gov agencies and loose all positions sitewide while our out of date halfbaked and useless content does fine?
I give up man, we passed stupid a long time ago. Honestly Google, what are you thinking?
