Rankings Dropping Like Flies - UPDATE
Yesterday I blogged about a situation I was having with my site after switching to Yoast. Long story short, My 1st page rankings were not only gone, but my pages became non existent as well as website traffic. The link to the full post is below.
So shortly after posting I decided to switch back to All In One (which was seamless I might add) and resubmitted my sitemaps to Webmaster Tools. Then Kyle posted about Google Penguin 4.0 and I began to wonder if that was the culprit. I digress....
Less than 24 hours after changing back to All in one and resubmission of sitemaps, I am now fully indexed.
I will also say that I did some additional digging on yoast and found an alarming amount of people that had the exact same issue I did. Some of the very first reviews you see in the plugin area even talk about it.
I know many here use Yoast and don't have problems. I will stick with All in One though. One thing to think about though, If others are experiencing similar issues that I did with drastic rankings drops and other issues like that, Where would your rankings be now if you were using All In One instead of Yoast. I'd love to see a head to head comparison. Oh Wait, good thing I took screenshots :)
I will wait two weeks (the time I used with Yoast) and post the difference in page positions and rankings then. This could be fun.
