I manage a lot of sites, and invariably when there are big changes at google, some improve, some stay the same and some get hit.
Of the 150 of so i am managing currently, 3 were hit a couple of months ago, and the only thing i can see in common is they all have a home page link on their main keyword to home.
Cats - anchor text to home page.
Window cleaning - anchor text to home page.
As a result, the home page has been removed from googles results... inner pages still rank.... but the resultant removal of the home page and its PR/link juice means the inner pages have been hit hard.
Anyway else seeing something like this or got an alternate cause for a home page being removed for its main term due to internal links on an optimised anchor text?
