my site got huge drop at 21 Oct. Really need some advise!!
My site is lamtheo.com one of local site at VietNam. Before 21/10/2010 this is good with 15k visitors / day and grown up day by day. Suddenlly i see the visitors drop to 2k per day. I've read some thread in here and i see that have 2 ways to solve this :
1) Check this site carefully to see if this break any google's rules : duplicate content, keyword stuffing and more... and then send a request to reconsideration to google via Google webmaster Page.
2) Ask help from expert people and google webmaster via this forum.
The way 1) i've done and i still waiting for response but seem like i not get it for the reconsideration request.
So i start this thread to see if have any expert help me out. Coz lost visitor day by day make me hurt.
Thanks and sorry for my bad English.
If you're sure you haven't violated google's guidelines the most logical explenation is an algorithm change which wasn't good for your ranking. There over 400 algorithm changes a year at Google.
I looked up your source and I see that you have a <div> with id "thickload" which is hidden. This could caused your penalty.
@Daniël Voogsgerd : hi thanks for making help. Problem is this change "suddenlly" . Like i think, if google change some algorithm and my site is affected by that, the traffic must drop slowly, date by date. But it drop immediately from 15k per day to 2k per day. This is not normal rite?
Btw, i will try to make this div not hidden. thanks you.
As you can see many have this same problem. I see a lot of very poor quality sites ranking higher than they really should. It might be because google released some filters to reorganize the index. Surely I do not see google sticking with things this way and I am sure all will be fine soon enough.
Just keep producing great unique and interesting content, that is all you can do for now.
Like one famous person said : "Even one litle lighter on the dark" ^^^
As brinked says, many see the same problem, and the recommendations are unique and great content...
if you want to exchange knowledge and experiences write me to my user name at gmail.
@brinked : yes u are correct. I argree with u 100%. Hope waiting google is not wasting time :)
