aakk9999 OK. I have said my piece now on that point.
I will sit and watch the technical discussion unfold. The top three causes why sites have been downgraded would be good to see whilst crappy sites have been promoted.
I have parked domains sitting on page 2 for only moderately competitive phrases. The thing I am seeing in my market is that very old sites even if they are parked domains are now ranking. Sites which had no trafic beforehand. Some quality sites have at the same time disappeared from page 1 and 2.
I note also that no site which regularly uses adwords who also sit on page one or two from 5 different phrases in my market have been downgraded. And this may be a clue. Find an example of a site which has been seriously downgraded from page 1 or 2 but has also regularly used adwords. None in my market.
