@chalkywhite, confirmed. Worst Sunday every and it continues today.
We have been hit on 9. April update gained traffic with penguin 2. Git a huge hit on 05.juni update. From this day it goes down every day a little bit more. Thursday was a big up, but it seems there was a filter not applied.
Now we are down to 60% from prepanda.
Although we are located in Germany we get traffic from Italy, Austria, Swiss.
I noticed two things since the 5. Juni update:
1. Domain crowding is back, unfortunatelly we have 3-6 URLs listed in serps. Every time this Shows up, our refferals and Quality traffic goes down. I think that it has something to do with Impression throtteling. One query takes away 6 Points from Impression-account, so there is not left much for other queries.
2. since this update, refferal spam from russia is gradually growing. I think its related to a certain dataset. I canīt exlain why but there is surely a correlation.
3. all of our canonical sites that worked very good are now 30+. We have been replaced by Domains that do NOT USE canonical tag but have a summary page and widget deatil pages online.
All webmasterguidlines seems to be set to off. If u follow the guidelines your site will get down. Make a non guidelines-conform site and your are on the sunny side.
