I don't know if it's due to Panda or not:
My site is 5 year old and has relevant inbound links, mostly pointing to originally written news post pages, and I don't think my site is a content farm.
Here's a pattern for the last two days:
- I publish an original news post and after an hour or more I get links from relevant sites.
- The related posts with backlinks to my post (on these relevant sites) get on the top of Google SERPS and my page is somewhere around #5.
- After a couple of hours, a couple of scrapper sites take over my position and I'm on the 2nd, 3rd page or simply nowhere.
I was curious and did the same check for my competitor's news, which has a similar site as I do. The pattern in his case is less severe, but scrappers are above him anyway.
I've filled a spam report on GWT and waiting for solution.
Does anyone else experience the same or similar thing?
