Quick history... for pretty much 12 years I had been on the first page if not the top of it for many keywords up until earlier this year with all the changes. This site is an EMD and dropped off the map for its main keywords. About two months or so ago I got up to page 15 or so, then 12, then 7, then 3, and last week was back on page 1. Mind you this wasn't for all keywords just one in particular - it appears everything else is still gone.
Now, today I check and I am back on page 3. I am at a loss what to even do anymore other than not care, but how can't you?
As far as the history and personalization goes I have been using this link, I think I found it here, which should wipe all of that out -
I don't even know what to say anymore. I have noticed across the board that the amount of search terms has dropped on all sites... before incoming terms made sense and were in large numbers... now it seems there is this small group which while it makes sense... it doesn't when you compare it to a terms that it is not ranking for.
I am also seeing many 'new' sites show up which go completely against all of Googles new changes - one pagers, no content at all other than domain and a h1, cross site links, paid links, etc., etc.
