    Well all 3 of my sites that got hit hard by the change on the 27th are now back where they are supposed to be and also other people reported that they are better now.

    That was giving me a scare but I am glad its fixed. :) :) :)

    Halleluia! Lets hope it sticks. I can confirm that Google traffic is now following the same pattern as before June 27th, what a relief. What did we all learn from this? Diversify our income streams!

    I'm also seeing major improvements this morning. Google traffic is improved so far today and site command is back to normal. I hate to get to excited yet but it is great news. I hope all of you that were effected June 27th are also seeing improvements today.

    And, with Google still (for now) owning the lion's share of the search market, just how do you intend to accomplish that?

    Hopefully they are learning to utilize more traditional off line means of driving traffic and conversions....but I doubt it.

    Just so you know, things aren't back exactly as they were. I know because I had some rankings show up in the June 27 update (which made me happy) and they are still there.

    well i guess they are still working on some of the websites, it will take time for every website to return to what they where before.

    Thanks for the vote of confidence.

    My sites have bounced back quite nicely, and because I was doing better and better in the other search engines I think I might just have a record traffic day.

    :)

    I am REALLY starting to hate the 27th of each month. :(

    I lost 99% of my Google traffic on March 27th, gained all of that back and more on June 27th and now here on July 27th you guessed it, all of the Google traffic is gone again.

    For one thing, generate adsense income with diverse network of sites, not just one large site or 2 or 3 sites, also something I already do is sell digital products through affiliates, since traffic comes from affiliates, it's not dependant on Google (although Google could hurt their traffic and affect me indirectly).

    Also as northstar mentioned, different businesses, or investing online income in offline assets like real estate.

    I also plan to diversify contextual ad programs (when Yahoo and MSN become available to foreign publishers) and even hosting providers (in case my dedicated server goes down or for whatever reason). After this, I want to have every angle covered so in case one thing drops out there will be other things keeping the income flowing.

    :confused:

    I don't know what is happening but I've been hit very hard today. For some search results that I have been in the top ten for most of the time since the 1990's I'm suddenly finding myself buried several pages down in SERPs. It isn't just a few phrases either, it appears that the vast majority of the searches I usually do very well in have tumbled. My traffic today is off by around 80%. :eek:

    It isn't like I have a MFA site and it isn't like I chase every Google dance trying to tweak my SEO. My focus today is the same as it has always been producing really good original content. I don't know what happened overnight (literally) but I don't like it and if it doesn't get fixed quicky, I will be in a world of hurt. :(

    So now you can say it isn't just new MFA sites that are getting hit. It is very old very well established sites with mountains of original content and piles of really high quality inbound links (e.g. from .GOV, .EDU, .MIL type sites) that are getting hit very hard.

    The thing that really pisses me off about this is that sub-domain spammers, site scrapers and other bottom feeders seem to always find a way to survive. :mad:
