Yesterday I mentioned that Google applied their latest search engine algorithm and it make a big effects on my sites. This new algorithm is named “webspam algorithm change”. And it does a nice job to clean up my sites from the SERPs. Now I have a whole day data to analyze. I will not update all my sites because Google may fine tune their algorithm as well. When the changes get stable, I will come back to check my sites data.
As a result of webspam algorithm change, one of my site already dropped from the SERPs. With several frustrated search, I finally find the footprint of my site in page 15. And the result page link is not the link I targeted before. That means this new algorithm already added my previous link in the black list for this keywords, which I did lots of backlinks on. And it is treated as link schemes which is one of the webspam methods. And the traffic of today dropped by 80% and the income of this sites dropped by 80% as well.
Currently no one knows how to make sites recover from this situation. And it may keep in this situation forever. So I decide to pick up one site for a test. I will clean up all the backlinks which I can control and change the site structure a little bit. I will make the sites look like a information site instead of a common blog. And after that, I will submit my site to google for reconsideration. Hopefully, it will work.
