I'm just trying to add value. Telling you what I'm seeing.
The ratio is "Internal Links - External Links / Total Links" I'm NOT subtracting nofollows. In my data, high numbers, both negative and positive, got hit hard.
But what about the sites that DIDN'T move significantly?
I'm working on it.
...results do not disprove our suppositions
I'm not trying to disprove any suppositions. I just want to know how to account for the fact that some About and WebMD sites moved up and others down while having the same design, color, number of ads, etc.
This is a complicated update with lots of moving parts.
