    Basically the sites I optimized for are s*** now and the ones I did not care about at all are ranking better than ever. What a f***job.

    Some of my site got hit. Some got a boost.

    It's part of the game. You have to accept it as it is.

    I saw some quite odd things on my sites.

    Biggest site barely changed from the week before, average of slightly over 20k a day to slightly under 20k a day. Nothing interesting in SERPs, just the usual jitter. I didn't actually realise there had been an algorithm change, which is a novelty for me.

    Oldest site doubled in traffic and had a lot of keyword positions go up. This is a site I update maybe once a year.

    My small business site has had a 100-200 rank increase for some completely, totally, utterly irrelevant and useless keywords that are possibly the last thing I would want anyone to find the site using. This one baffles me completely.

    Other sites are all so low traffic its hard to see any difference.

    Increase across the board here, in general it's a positive step but expect more tweaks in the coming downs to iron out any issues.

    I've been expecting the levelling of the playing field for some time

    Natural SEO over manufactured is certainly the way forward

    From the 20 sites we manage, 6 have remained static, 1 has dropped from page 1 to page 2 and 13 have risen, some by considerable amounts.

    If you're struggling in the wake of the over optimisation update you may find this article of assistance http://www.businessservicesuk.com/i...s-For-Combating-Over-Optimisation-Update--276

    This comes from another well known forum, please "interpret" this dream as "BEST YOU CAN"

    The clock is ticking


    "Message as follows"


    "My dream"

    Last night I had a dream

    In my dream a message was posted in a forum.

    The message said that 7 days from now on Sunday 6th of May 2012 hundreds of thousands of webmasters, their friends and their families would start to click on the advertising boxes in a Titan search engine.

    I dreamt that during the 7 days leading up to this the message was "COPIED AND SPREAD"

    "On that Sunday" millions of advertisers then "paused" their accounts through fear of these clicks.

    This action would cost the Titan search engine to lose millions in lost revenue.

    The advertisers would "not" though lose their money due to receiving the message...

    Although the Titan search engine was badly hurt it was "not" destroyed.

    Word then reached the real boss and "not" his minion who thought he was a "Cutt" above the rest.

    The "real" boss then acknowledged there was a problem and made a "statement".

    In my dream the Titan search engine was made aware of the seriousness of the situation and the webmasters were informed of "exactly" what was going on.

    They would no longer be ignored and their concerns would be addressed.

    The most important outcome of the message would be that the Titan search engine would more careful with its "future" implementations.

    It would promise to keep the webmasters informed and weigh up the consequences of its actions.

    So went my dream.

    .................................................. .


    This morning as I lay there I thought to myself....
    If the "right people" decided to send such a message i think it could actually reach a considerable number of people.

    After all some dreams do come true don't they.

    ......................

    End message

    To all : if you previously has a site in first position and now dropped to middle of nowhere....... and want to get back your position.....

    Use adwords...... !!

    I think, with this update, Google only want to increase their earning..

    with SEO = get hit......
    without SEO = get hit also .......

    :mad:
