Google Core Update: Traffic drops 50% to 70% CCN.com 3 Recommended Answers 54 Replies 40 Upvotes

The new Google Core update has significantly impacted CCN.com. Why did this update have that large impact on our site? We got a team of 60+ journalists and editors, if this continues I'm afraid that we need to start downsizing the entire staff.

Please update us on the issue.

Something odd happening - not sure what exactly.
See indexed results for main domain (not subdomains)
Checking a few at random I find:
Blank page >> https://www.ccn.com/advertise
Why might these be showing a Cache of hacked.com? And now responding 404.
Urls with  <   /?p=  > seem to be like this,  but so do those others.
So check out what is going on with the site. 
Scan with a security plugin such as wordfence.

What do you mean with showing a blank page? Those pages do work for me?

The word Here was not showing as a hotlink on the page.
And when I first looked at  https://www.ccn.com/advertise  there was nothing on the page but a bold heading.
So is something sniffing useragent/ or IP or  ??

Our website was growing fine on Organic for the past few weeks. It also saw a major dip in the last week. But thankfully we are recovering now. 

However, we've not been able to figure out any specific reason for the drop and exactly what the update was around.
