I think is impressive our chart.

We are a legitimate source accredited for major international organizations in world. We are not the best newspaper but we try to be a very good one and we should not deserve this. We couldn't understand yet why Google did this to our news site and we no receive any manual action or any communication about what is happening via GSC in all this years.



We are totally blind to fix it.  From our POV it has being sad and cruel. Google should notice sites are companies about penalizations as big for we can fix it. We have fixed hundred of things since this happen.

We would like to propose convert this penalties in manual action while time for website are companies (and not hackers or spammers).

Hi, what is the site URL? Use a URL shortener like bit.ly if you wish. 
Without knowing the site URL we cannot see if there is a problem, or what the problem is. 
We are not Googlers, we are volunteer helpers, we simply try to help webmasters to help themselves.

Thanks a lot. Hope we can count with support and help. Is an unfair and hard situation and we don't know what else to do, fully blocked :(

This is our website: 
https://bit.ly/2VUVnrO 

780.000 articles original and manually revised for be published by our editors team. In the G index only are the original articles, homepages, some hundred of official tags and Who we are, contact and terms pages.

This is our site description. Try use Google translator please: https://bit.ly/2YVCEi6

Beside any penalization, what we request to Google is be informed about why happened this things, due is a big suffering only can live and be aware who live it.

This is data from years ago from Google

Years ago 30 days period



This is data now
(Google only is sending traffic to one country - 85% - of it, thing have killed our business in the others countries and we want to fix > We are a media outlet with a mission: offer chances to media creators as difficult is for many people find a job in it, we consider Google should check this carefully, we are in a industry so Google-depending) and we don't know and consulted many SEOs how to fix this due the site is big, and we are journalists. We did a lot of things to try to fix, but any of them served in last 5 years, only had an improvement on Feb 2017 Google update where we recover a bit of traffic in all countries.

Last 30 days. 
For example the traffic send in /es/ is from 12.600.000 of pages from Google to 120.000. Is maddening.

I'll add a second comment

Only had a Global Improvement on Feb 2017 Google update where we recover a bit of traffic in all countries. Rest of traffic from Google only correspond to the country we told in the before comment. Rest of countries are without traffic from Google almost starting it on November 2014.


See organic traffic difference with a competitor 21,4k vs 1.5M of traffic from Google.
This cause a big difference in the market and we are similar sites that share many authors.

Hi, 

I would like to describe something continue happening us can be related with us:

Basically, problem is Google is not changing the old articles for the new one, and this affect:
- Our position in ranks in SERPs due Google is giving us a position with old article score
- Our new articles no appear in the Top Stories Carrousel sometimes because the TS Carrousel really is receiving and old article to rank from the organic SERPs that no noticed the new articles about the keyword.
- When change it, in all newspapers use to increase position, however in our case simply quit the old and add the new in same position, like if it be a duplicated instead a fresh article. Once this happen if we recrawl the article then yes, Google improve the ranking like 20-30 positions to top.

Example / Query: Pablo Laso (is manager of Real Madrid in Basketball Team), our result appear position 34 when should be more above if Google noticed the articles more fresh we published about "pablo laso". Google show article of 8 days ago! When we did several articles last days. It is being a pattern.


As you can see our FRESH articles are properly indexed:


So we no appear in Top Stories when search "Pablo Laso" clearly because top stories is trying to rank an article of 9 days ago of our domain due the new articles were threated or seems be threat as DUPLICATES, when are diffents too as you can review:

https://www.vavel.com/es/baloncesto/2019/06/18/acb/985297-pablo-laso-tenemos-que-crecer-como-equipo-para-dar-el-maximo.html
https://www.vavel.com/es/baloncesto/2019/06/18/acb/985252-pablo-laso-ese-ultimo-tiro-lo-querriamos-todos-para-carroll.html 
https://www.vavel.com/es/baloncesto/2019/06/16/acb/985066-pablo-laso-donde-no-van-a-llegar-las-piernas-lo-haran-el-corazon-y-la-cabeza.html
etc...

However in OTHER NEWSPAPERS with same moment described and posted after us, Google create clusters with same keyword news are daily (and really are very similar to our content) :



In this cases, are quotes-article-type of the coach (in vavel, in as.com, in mundodeportivo.com etc), but our problem happen with all kinds of content, reports, preview, live blogs etc. while with the other newspapers make articles clusters.

What we have to change?

We come here to say that, because this no happen in one query if not happen in almost ALL and is a pattern for us making harm in our organic traffic as Google is not identifying our new content as new for some reason.

We have reviewed ALL and have medium-high knowledge in SEO.

Are we ok with our technical or design part of the site or why is happening this?
