Nothing recovered, I am still going through stress and hard time. My site was really the leader in the niche done by a pro and yesterday I was on page 2 then page 3 now I am not on first 100 results. Mind you my site was getting 70k visitors a month and bounce rate was 38% because I had really given my heart and soul after the expert did the articles.
Those metrics have nothing to do to be honest, my site metrics according seomoz are DomainAuthority 85, PageAuthority 79, PR 6, online since 2001 over 200 pages of quality material each exceeding 1000 words with images, drawings and concept done in 3dmax. None of the other sites have that.
I have sites without Ads and with adverts and they have all been hit the only similarity between my sites are they were all OLD, Authority sites, great content, just not exactmatch domains, which is now dominating the search. I can give you 45 queries where the top result is exactmatch but content is scraped and done by script listing top schools in that market and they are ranking 1.
Further like I said I can give you queries where the top results are junk 5-6 pages MFA sites ranking and dominating the 1st page.
Love ya mate, thank you so very much for making the point. I did get an email about the layout as well and I made those changes for some of my sites where I run Adsense and content is great on those as well.
Not sure how long should we wait before this settles down, lost so many sales and clients yesterday as I am nowhere to be found on first 10 pages.
My other main site a .au totally irrelevant website which is only helpful to people in Australia is ranking #1 and I am ranking 8th
