So, anyone know what\’s going on with Google then?
Over at the other site we\’ve been getting pretty successful at getting first page results for various celebrity stories. OK, so they decay off the front page after a few days, but that\’s fine.
But traffic was up at 10k-15k page views a day.
Then two days ago it fell off a cliff. The same pieces that were page one (even number one) for certain strings are now page six.
Traffic is now down to 3k a day maybe.
Has there been some great change to the algorithm? Is there some manual penalty being applied to blogs with paid blog posts not using the "no follow" tag?
Is this part of a googledance and it\’ll all blow over? Or has there been some permanent change?
