Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
Will be interested if anyone can pin point what filters etc have been added this time.
I dont design my sites for google I design them for visitors but all the time I seem to get hit.
I'm going back to building doorway pages. At least they work and survive these updates a lot better. Tell me when the end-of-the-summer update is here.
Looks like a major cleanup of freehost/redirect spam is underway, with some normal collateral damage to innocent sites. Finally some progress on all that garbage that Google has been in love with since july 1st.
you may be right. just a couple of days ago, my site ranked approx. #30 and my category returned 140 million pages on 90% of the datacenters. I am now seeing my site at #8 with serps returning 74 million pages on 80% of the datacenters.
if that's really the case, then it would seem like a huge, huge cleanup with half the pages being removed!
...then again, i could be seeing things...
