I was hit hard. I'd say 50% of links lost keyword rankings and while I've tried adding new content to the affected pages they seem to be a lost cause. What I did was add new pages on related content, but targeting different long-tail keywords. That seemed to work great for a while, but recently the new pages I've launched are not ranking as well as the pages I built/launched last summer/fall.
I'm a little confused by Google on which pages got affected and why? It definitely seems like most of the affected ones were higher searched keyword related, but not all the high search traffic pages were affected. I'd like to get input on pages that used to rank, but haven't for a while now. Is it pretty safe to assume they are flagged and almost anything I do won't help regain traffic for those URLs?
