I have a website where all the pages are at least 1k words. Ranked page 1 and two for all terms. I was doing good, and I deserved it because my content is 1k times better than anyone else's out there.
March 6 2013, all traffic disappeared. I dont have any paid links, no spammy links. I have a KW domain, and everything fell into the 200 pages of google EXCEPT for three pages on my site.
I have no idea what made google rank those pages still. Nothing is ranking properly, when you search for something you dont get what you should on my site, rather it gives you a similar page. Seems like some kinda over-optimization penalty, but if thats the case then why did my homepage get sandboxed.
I am making no money right now, and have absolutely no idea why I was penalized. I dont have any ads, My site is written and coded by ME. I know everything about this website, and I know how good the content is because I personally researched and wrote it.
I am so depressed over this, it makes me want to give up. I dont even know what caused this. What can anyone do really, google is currently ranking my competitors higher than me and their reviews are one page, 400 words.
I wrote 1500 word review, and added specific content in addition, like long pros and cons lists, and detailed aspects of different offers etc...
I have never been so down before. I followed googles rules, and I got crapped on for it. Now I dont know what to do.
