I have two blogs, one popular and long term, all 100% unique, and IMHO well written content. Both have dropped down to at least page 10 of the serps for many keywords, and gone entirely for others. My energy blog went from 150-200 visits a day to Zero on Sept 29, and still has not received any (or just a couple) visits. Appears even repeat visitors were googling the name to find it - just like I do for everything I visit.
My other blog had a couple hundred photos (again mine) that were in image search. Now they appear to be gone entirely as of Sept 29.
Neither one was for profit, neither one had ever been "marketed" in any way, and the personal blog had no advertising or 3rdparty content whatsoever.
