Denis Grosz' Conjecture Corp. owns the website with the biggest percentage drop in visibility, according to Sistrix. The website, WiseGeek.com, has had a 25 percent drop in traffic, he said.

"We have heard Google's message very clearly — they want to raise the standard of quality on the web and we applaud them for that. We have always worked on improving the quality of our content, but we are now ramping up those efforts even more."
