My website is in the travel industry. It's 3 years old. I have original content - unique descriptions and pictures mostly for the offers in my region, but also many affiliate descriptions and images for the rest of the country.
Initially my website was hit by Penguin 1 on 24.04.2012.
Back then my website lost it's rankings for it's main keywords (the webpages targeting those keywords disappeared from the SERPS or were at the end of the SERPS, e.g. position 700-800+).
Also many long tail keywords containing my main keywords jump from 1st or 2nd page to 5th to 10th page. It was page and keywords specific demotion.
Also then i noticed that "related:my-site-dot-com" doesn't return anything at all.
No matter what I've tried the situation didn't improve until Penguin 2.1.
My website successfully recover on 04.10.2013 - in my opinion thanks to the Google Disavow Links Tool.
Now on 18.07.2014 suddenly (overnight) my traffic drop to the lowest levels ever.
This time most of my pages are nowhere to be found - they still exist in the index - but are not shown in the SERPS, e.g. 900+ pages or are in the Google supplemental results.
I wasn't doing any changes at least for the last 6 months.
I don't see any toxic links pointing to my site, or Russian referral spam.
I have around 28 000 pages in the index - according to GWT and using "site:my-site-dot-com" command.
I was getting 2000 (in the winter) to 5000 (in the summer) page views (mostly from Google), but after 18 July 2014 it is barely touching 1000 page views!
Almost 90% of my pages are demoted, still some pages are ranking on the first page of Google and even first position.
And I'm still performing very well in Bing and Yandex (my website is translated in Russian).
I've checked some of my unique pages with Copyscape and they're not scraped, also I saw that I haven't been assigned a manual penalty in GWT.
Is anyone else noticing this?
