My EMDs have been hit, down 40% since Sept 28th. I'd hoped they wouldn't be seen as "low-quality" seeing as they all have handwritten, unique content, but the Google algo obviously disagrees. I'm trying to figure out why.
Doing some research here and then examining my sites I have noticed three things which might be the culprit:
1) My site bluewidgets.com is about blue widgets and I do seem to have blue widget or widget in most of my anchor texts. But I don't understand how I'm supposed to avoid that - 99% of people are going to link to me using blue widgets or bluewidgets.com. What anchor text should I be requesting?
2) All of my incoming links are to the home page.
3) I have no outbound links except for ads which I've nofollowed.
Are any/all of these three things the reason my sites are deemed "low-quality"?
