I am baffled by these updates. You hire journalists from Contently paying $3000 - $4000 per white paper they research and write for you to make sure users and Google are happy.
BUT BANG a new update comes and all the traffic is gone.
I am frustrated with Google. It is like trying to please a women who just wouldn't get pleased no matter what you do for her.
All our investment is gone in vain once again. We had hardly 12-13 backlinks and mainly from newspaper sites (forbes, CNN etc).
I just don't get how my site can get hit by this update.
FOR LOVE OF GOD I WAS GETTING 100 visitors a day not 10million visitors and they were all for long tail. Now we are back to 20 visitors a day with this new update.
How I am supposed to take that $4000 out of my pocket and pay to these journalists to create top notch content when every next update is as ridiculous as the old one.
I could understand if I was raking $50k-$100k a day (Google not liking the fact that I was making money) however I have no Adsense, no Ads. Just an informative site to get our brand name out there.
