my site was hit hard by this update (-15%), the only explanation i have is that they target the whole url and not just the domain name since my domain name doesn't really look like an emd for anything
Some EMD I have caught up in this are domains with numbers in the example 123keywords.uk others have been hyphenated or the singular term, were nice widgets is the search term the domain nicewidget.uk is deemed low quality.
This update leaves me with a dilemma, on one domain I own, I changed servers two weeks ago together with a complete site redesign and all new content. This is an EMD but I am unsure now if this has been caught in this update or if it triped some filter because of all the mods carried out. Suppose I will have to wait it out an see.
[edit reason] removed specific domain name from the quote [/edit]
