my site got his severely by the exact match domain update. i lost 15-20% of traffic (initial estimates that may be corrected)
the site is only one domain and it has 2000 different articles, 97% of the traffic (if not more) comes through the articles themselves not through the main page so why was i hit by that update?
the only explanation could be that google targets full URLS not domains - for instance example.com/how_to_get_over_depression
could be it be that they hate to see an exact match in the url? (and yes i have many of them)
