Not sure if it a manual penalty applied or what cause we are the only ones who have seemed to suffer. What would you do? Get new domains?
Also if you have a links page make sure their is no more then 100 links on it, but best to keep at 10 to 20 links per page.
If they don't, then you can probably guess why Google doesn't rate the pages with the links on them.
Just my two pence worth.
To answer these:
All the links were showing prior to the update. Weird one on the pr. One site is showing a PR6 and then all the other pages are 0 or 2 or something like that.
The site have gone from being #1 to outerspace.
As Glengara said (Hi Gg!) "link schemes designed to increase your site's ranking or PageRank" could well be the problem.
I posted elsewhere about sites 'apparently' showing a "cluster effect" tripping a new filter. Think thats what happened on the 12th. We didn't even have your hundreds of independent links.
We're now seriously building lots of independent links & decoupling from our PR8 link network. Hope that should do the trick
Weird thing do, one site that have multiple links to my site and vice versa have retained its PR and backlinks, haven't got effected at all.
We have multiple links to each other not to boost PR but as a service to our visitors, we're theme related but offer different services. It's just logical that we end up having a partnership of some sort, one needs the other to provide a more complete service to users.
But my site got hit by this problem and their site was not.
Other than this cross linking, most of my backlinks are unsolicited or unreciprocated.
PR1 and above are showing as backlinks :(
I double checked in case just this page for whatever reason.....multiple pages of PR1s & PR2s are showing as backlinks...that's why this PR6 site have hundreds of them as backlinks.
I checked my PR4 site for backlinks lower than PR4...none of them showed and I'm 100% sure that I have hundreds too of low PR backlinks.
Is this some kind of selective PR calculation? Now, I'm beginning to feel like some sort of penalty.
How on earth a page with a single backlink of PR3 can have a PR of 4?
Crazy or what? lol
