My site was never affected by Panda or Penguine since Nov 2012. But On Nov 6 2012 I received a message in my WMT account like this:
Search results clicks for http://mypage..... have decreased significantly.
The number of clicks that your site receives from Google can change from day to day for a variety of factors, including automatic algorithm updates. However, if you have recently made significant changes to the content or configuration of your site, this change may be an indication that there are problems.
Check the Search Queries page in Webmaster Tools
Investigate whether the traffic change affects the whole site or just a few pages. Configuration changes are likely to affect the whole site
Some content is popular only for a short window of time. If the change in traffic affects only this kind of content this message may not be indicative of any problem.
And I noticed that my Traffic dropped from daily 15000 page views to 7000 PV/day.
I did some changes in my site theme after that message. After waiting for 6 month I noticed increase in Traffic after March 2 2013.
But the traffic again decreased after Mar 15 2013 it returned to 7000 PV/day.
But after 13th April 2013 The traffic wen down to only 2000 PV/day. This time I received a message in my Adsense account with the suggestion of reducing the HTML resource for my pages. I checked my pages through WMT "Fetch as Google" tool and noticed some pages with large number of comments were truncated. I cleaned my theme and now it is minimized.
But Now Google is refusing to index my new posts. I filed a reconsideration request, but the reply is like this: "There is no manual spam action found".
All my top ranking pages went from #1 to #30 or more.
I could not find the reason. Please help me.
[edit reason] defeat the forum's autolink feature [/edit]
