I can only wait next few days to see what will happen. After 10 years being on top 3 now I am not even on 1-2 pages.
Everything aside the top 3 guys are doing PURE SPAM and have stolen our content. Jeez Google at times becomes a laughing stock.
@MrWumpus I can feel ya, I can really. I am shocked at the results that I see currently for some of my sites. Sites with junk content and blog comment spam as backlinks are on top and with double listing.
Our site which was online since early 2001 and ranking in top 3 for a decade is not to be found anywhere I was on page 2 now I am not to be found.
Amusing part is that we had only 40 backlinks to the site never did anything shady. All links were from sites like WSJ/LaTimes/Local newspapers around our area. Content was written by my cousin who holds a PhD in that market. But now we are gone as Google machines are not learning but they are dead.
Guy ranking #1 for one of my terms where I was 2nd now on 8th position has over 80+ keywords stuffed across the homepage and he has double listing yes both pages are junk content written by someone without any knowledge of the electrical engineering.
I would second that for this update.
I have gotten something very similar but what is shocking is a site done in "electrical engineering" by a PhD guy ranking on top for 10 years is not to be found on first 10 pages. I was 2nd page just hours ago.
