I have a Wordpress site with over 10,000 pages. I recently added a "Related Posts" plugin and set the number of links to 7.
Within a week, I lost almost all Google referrals. When you google the "Domain name" my site show's up, but other than that I no longer receive any referrals. Even when I search the complete sentence in "quotation", my site doesn't show up.
Is this a penalty? Or a temporary red flag? What now?
Are these new "Related" links considered a sudden change on my site and is this why I have been penalized?
Should I remove/disable the plugin? Or would that be considered another immediate (bulk) change?
Has anyone experienced anything similar? Any solution?
thanks in advance,
