I don't know what these Google nerds are up to. My comparison site (gadgets) has been horribly hit after the recent update...down from 700 clicks daily to 35 clicks. I can accept that if the other sites which have taken over my rankings are better than mine. However, that's certainly not the case. All the new results for "XYZ prices" or "XYZ Best offers" point to individual retailers. So if a customer has to find out the best price, he'll have to open all the links of the 1st page and find out which one is the best. Great job! One of the results on the first page is a Youtube video that says "XYZ Product Launched". So, why would you want to watch a video while searching for prices? Another one is a blogpost with a fake author image which has a link which says go over there to find the best prices for this certain product.
The site I'm operating has a high conversion rate compared to the network average. That shows that users are happy with the website but unfortunately Google thinks otherwise. Whom should I believe? Google or the users? As for my backlinks, I can't seem to find any which can be considered spamming. I'm seeing sites with just directory links ranking above mine whereas I haven't used any such links. Seeing the results, I don't know what they have fixed with this update.
