Hi WaFmily, I am just wondering of you like to share with me how the latest google algaritm have effected your website?

I have not much experience with the updates from Google, but I have a trafic lose I try to work out. It has started around the change of google updates a few weeks ago and slowly got worse. My ranking have dropped too. Or maybe I am panalised by google for some reason?

Have you experienced a signifacant ranking and traffic change since the Google update either positive or negative?

Please comment below, I am looking forwards to read your experiences.

Have a great day.

Jude

I agree with Diane she is a lady in the know, there was what appeared to be one on August 15th but it was rolled back. We are waiting for the next major one promised best guestimate is incoming imminent.!! ;

unnamed Update — August 15, 2020
Unconfirmed

Rank tracking tools and webmaster chatter suggested a significant update, with MozCast measuring 101°F, but no update was confirmed by Google. Some industry analysts suggested the changes were rolled back the next day and may have been temporary.

Google Glitch — August 10, 2020
Confirmed

SEOs reported massive ranking changes for a few hours on August 10, which then seemed to disappear. Google later confirmed a glitch in their indexing systems. MozCast registered 97°F the following day (August 11), but it's unclear if this event was related.

Thank you for sharing this information R, very helpful. I am pretty sure now my site is penalised for some reason. I last significant ranking from my posts who were stable ranking on the first and second page of Google.
I hope you are healthy and well R

Cheers Jude

Hey,
You are as ever most welcome my lady!!
Jude it doesn't have to be a penalise as such it can be a change to the algorithms and requires some digging into to find out what exactly is the issue!

In the last update many were affected very badly including me so set out to find out as much as I can including repurposing my content and attempting to improve on others.

Having said all that algorithms change every day and it may be a temporary effect!! ;)

Trust you are doing your best to righting the situation only resist the urge to throw the baby out with the bath water!! ; lols

Thank you I am as best as I can be and trust you all are the same!

Have a great day!

Ok R, thank you for your message, I lasted 50 per cent of my traffic last week, and it is now down to nihil, makes me so sad all the hard work and patient disappear into nothing.

I did run an add alongside the same period and added a few affiliate links extra into a couple of posts related to the add what makes me wonder if this is the reason it happened.

How can you find out if your website is penalised? I was so happy after a long wait I got this little bit f organic traffic, just to see it disappear again.

Hopefully, the algorithm gets changed soon into our favour lol.
Hope you are well and tragic to recover soon for you too.

Google normally sends you a message through GSC of any errors you need to correct if there are any on your part normally.

Where those posts related to the add reviews? you know you should not place affiliate links in regular posts right? Google doesn't like that at all as it is spammy behaviour!! ;

Any way trust you will find what is going on!!

Have a good day!

R.

Thanks R, yes I am aware of this and the posts we're related and there were already affiliate links in these articles. I don't have links on all my pages.

I think I have feedback from a other member which what the case might be.

Probably my posts ranking high did not get clicked enough on and to high bounce rate and dropped for that reason.

When somebody reminded me about this I realised that that must have been the reason my rankings dropped.

So we go to focus on writing good quality content again and hopefully stop looking at traffic for now as it is only frustrating lol.

I trust you are well too and wish you lots of traffic.

As I said Jude there are different criteria for algorithms every day!

Of course if page is not being viewed as much only more imprtantly as you were advised rightly if bounce rate is up as content viewed time decreases will send signals to Google which may affect ranking unfortunately it is all a moving feast and a lot of factors are in play!

Thank you wishing you the same my lady!! ;

Be well,

R.

Hi - there hasn't been a significant Google update since May, and that apparently only affected the following areas;

Nutrition and recipes
Fitness
News
Drugs, alcohol, and rehab
Science and medical news
Banking and finance
Music and entertainment
Natural medicine
History

There was talk a couple of weeks ago that a new algorithm had caused some unexpected results, but it wasn't an algorithm change after all, it was an error that was corrected the following day.

I have experienced significant traffic loss since start of June, you can check out my latest WA blog post for more info. I think it's because of negative SEO targeted on my site, or at least I'm getting a ton of spammy backlinks. My traffic has been steadily low for the past three months so I can't really tell if the recent updated have made thing better or worse. But it's good to keep in mind that if your site is relatively new, less than a year for example, it's normal for the traffic to fluctuate.

It is just that some of my articles ranking on page 1 for a longer period of time all have dropped🤔.
I think my site might be penalised.
