So if my site was at number 2 for a keyword and is now at no position in the top 500 since the penguin update. Then I do the "keyword -authoritysiteinmyniche.com" into google and it shows back to number 2, what does this mean to me?
(a) Does it mean my site has been given an automated penalty by peguin?
(b) Is there anyway to say if this is an off-site or on-site penalty?
This all makes so little sense to me. Sorry.
