    Silly is having a huge percentage of your incoming links being clearly artificial, using the same couple of keywords, and mostly from sites like findcankersoreremedies, calling it good link diversity – and then trying to blame links to Amazon as the reason the site is falling. Having the same YT, Pin, FB etc links as just about everyone else really doesn’t matter much when the rest of your links are junk.
    I didn’t come here to bust your chops, but if you want to point the finger at the cause of your problems, it isn’t Google or Amazon.

    And really, if you didn’t figure out that using keywords as your commenting “name” is the mark of a spammer by now, I don’t think you have any room to be calling anyone silly.

    Well, what are they doing that violates Google’s guidelines? If you are going to claim something like that, you should be able to at least give a reason why you think Amazon should be punished.

    My mistake on the wrong site, but I would bet that the site in question isn’t much better.

    Our website too has been penalized, from the 1st page to the 10+ page. There are a few spamy links though. How can we get our page to good rankings again? Please help! Does disavow help? Will our rankings ever start increasing or we need to start taking some action?

    Yes i know its a big hit, i can see traffic drops, But the best thing is not to panic. Don’t remove the links which are there already. However you can remove those links which you think are not good or u know them personally, but care must be taken when doing this. Make ur internal pages strong, get them connected to social site like fb. Drive back traffic to your site via Social! Then you can see the affects. Get some authority links back to your website, it can do wonders, but will take some time.

    Once again Google has messed up big time!
    I have a site that was ranking at #2 for a competitive location based product keyword with the URL: /competitive-keyword/ the page has not a single spammy link, has 1,972 words of good informative content about the location and product. Been at #2 for nearly a year.
    Today that page has disappeared to be replaced by a completely irrelevant product page with 100 words of irrelevant content, no title, URL, H1 or H2 correlation and zero links.
    I am seeing this for a high number of results, complete nonsense once again Google.
    I actually did something last week I haven’t done for 5 years; after 3 ridiculous search query results I actually used Yahoo and got the result I wanted instantly.

    Most funny about such people is that they reverse the old saying, “Expert never claim himself as expert”. :P

    Thanks for sharing this useful information ., it really helps on knowing about Google updates .

    Same here… I saw the exact same scenario on 1 of my sites. At least we are seeing some consistency. Now we just need to troubleshoot the issue that triggered this drop and fix it. I am guessing that the links that were supporting our ranking have been discounted and that is way we are seeing the drop.

    All the emails I have recieved so far point to bad link profiles, press releases and other link related items. It appears distinctively that Google are disregarding all content if the link profile is bad. There also seems to be something similair to the EMD but rather than matching the content they are taking sites where the keyword repetition in the title tags across multiple pages is too frequent.

    From yesterday, my traffic became 1/10’th of what it was earlier. I am pretty sure that i was hit by one of the updates. I just want to know which update hit me,

    Penguin 2.1 or Penguin 5 ? coz last update was on October 3rd and i got hit on November 1’st. I had gone through the webmaster tools for the sites connecting to me. There was one spammy site and i disavowed it but traffic didn’t picked up. I don’t have any paid back links. Is there anything else i need to check ? Hope to hear your suggestions soon.

    I see sites with strange links (unnatural/spammy/low quality) went down but websites with good and valuable content went up. Or went up because that “bad websites” went down:D

  • joloshop

  • Pooja Desai

    After latest Google updates that previous methods of link building isn’t working like social bookmarking, comment, forum profiles etc. Now I started cleaning up some spammy or low-quality links, I also posted some articles on article posting websites.But I posted duplicate articles in many article posting web site with my site’s links in those articles. now i really don’t know whether should i remove this article or not ? to recover form Google penguin 2.1(May 22, 2013) update.
