I don't understand Google anymore.

Hi about since 2006 in the web industry. My country is Turkey. The latest Google updates are now really ridiculous. My website, which took 7 million impressions every month and received thousands of clicks, officially disappeared from searches. Here's the hit chart:


For this site:
1- There was no backlink from anywhere. Because I don't need that. As Google said, content is king.
2- This site is composed of original articles. The most accurate information was considered.
3- Users' experience on the site was cared. That's why I think I've succeeded in getting so many hits.

But as you can see on the top of the mind with no rationality, all the values ​​of my website have been turned upside down. I don't understand Google anymore.
If my website was so good why was it 7 million per month? What we changed was officially tumble.
The last time I looked at it, the situation became completely absurd. What URLs are indexing properly. Even visuals have problems.


Although there is no robots.txt or other access problem, it doesn't even accept images.


Why is that?

Google is no longer the same. Google is now trying to destroy the entire webmaster world.

Sorry my english

@kidemliabi ... Welcome to Webmasterworld!

G changes the algo constantly. Some changes are more significant than others. Recently (mid March to now) a large number of sites world wide have been adversely affected.

kidemliabi, welcome to WebmasterWorld. While Google's algo may change constantly, it's generally not as erratic as what your screen captures under present circumstances show.

I'm wondering whether you've seen reports of the bug, or series of bugs, confirmed by Google, which fairly closely matches your graphs and the dates you reported. See this thread, and read it carefully, as it's much more confusing than a normal Google search anomaly. I'd say, in fact, that it's fairly unprecendented in what I've seen, at least for a very long while, and it's not what I'd call part of the general variability of the Google search algo.

Reports of Google Dropping Pages Out of Index... possibly a bug?

There's been an indexing bug... actually a series of bugs... which have affected sites worldwide, in a way that's way out of the norm.

If there's any solace to be had, it's that you are not alone in this. With regard to what you can do, for the time being, I'd simply leave things on the site alone, though Google, in its most recent Twitter thread, does suggest that "in the case of site-specific issues", you can resubmit on Google's forum, or use the URL Inspector tool.

I'd also suggest following these threads, as well as seroundtable, for updated information.

Do a site: search in Google to see if your site is indexed. Don't rely on the search console because it's still broken.

Go to Google and type (replacing example.com with your own domain):

Let us know if Google shows that pages are indexed.

Are ad reports showing that visitors are on your site?
