The current penalties seem to affect a lot of people that previously enjoyed favour (not just posters here: as I trawl through to my current page 46 position, I notice that at least half of the sites that used to be vying with me for the top space on page 1 are on e.g page 38 now).
Yes, it's the same in my SERP. In fact only one site is left from the lot I used to comoete against.
I would love to hear some theories why this has happened. Why are the sites now in favour that google always seemed to dislike? At least in my SERP the sites that are now top 10 were all kept out as google didn't like their tactics though now it does OR just page 2 transferred to page 1 as page 1 has dropped off the map. Anyway, I digest - but I would love to hear some theories.
