Could this be segregation? Because I'm a keyword domain website, I have different rules and am looked upon differently. Interesting.
I get that there were some loopholes and some were taking advantage. For the most part it seemed to be the less popular areas where a lousy website with keyword matching domain could exist and sometimes prosper.
I can't say all my site are down, but those that are hit could be called decimated. For me this is a very confusing update. Will this once again give way to a submit to Google via online form if you feel you were wrongfully segregated?
In a sense if this stays, and if this collateral damage stays damaged, I see one positive. That positive will be the collapse of the domain scalpers. Now that might, and I say might get some headlines.
Based on previous Google history, could this possibly be the kind of update they dial back, rework, etc? How long might that take or what might be a "best case" scenario?
