Some of you webmasters may have noticed that your web page rankings has taken a nose dive due to Google's algorithm update this week. I've noticed a huge drop in traffic to my website yesterday and wasn't for sure what was going on until I googled "Google Rankings Dropped," and found an blog article about Google and their recent changes and saying they're rewarding high quality sites.
Google frown upon spam websites and are trying to get rid of them and stop them from ranking high on Google searches, which is good, but their changes has done the complete opposite and spam websites and videos are ranking #1 on Google's first page searches.
With spam websites now ranking high, it's hurting good quality websites and they're getting lost in the wind with Google searches. I remember when Google did algorithm changes back in 2011 called Panda 1.0 and that had affected my traffic a bit then but nothing compared to how my traffic is affected now!
I've worked hard producing good quality and orginal articles and I feel like I'm being punished for it! I rely on SEO (Search Engine Optimization) using keywords based on what my website is about, like "Making Money Online Free, Ways of Saving Money, etc." I've never used Black Hat webspam tactics like paid link building or keyword stuffing to rank high with Google and have only used White Hat techiques which are providing good informative articles that will benefit my readers.
Thank goodness I only use my website to make extra money to supplement my current income, but I feel sorry for those who rely on their website(s) for full time income.
Seems to me that Google wants webmasters to start buying their way to the top of the rankings with them, and I will not do that. If I have to, I'll start using Bing or Yahoo.
Thanks Matt Cutts for your crappy changes! Don't you know the saying, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." SHEESH!!!
