Today, I went to check my web site's SERP rankings.
Yahoo and Bing, no problem; they are firmly on page 1, where they have been for more than a year.
Google, big problem. My site is now on Page 3 for one keyword, and not even in the first 10 pages for the second.
When I looked at this using a Google Banned checker, it comes up as not banned.
It is still where it has been on Alexa, google PageRank, etc.
The only thing I have done for SEO in the last few days is to do more directory postings.
I checked my Webmaster tools and there are no nastygrams; in fact, no messages since November 2011.
I know a new Google algorithm update just came out.
A few questions:
Has anyone else been affected by this?
Has anyone seen their rankings recover from the algorithm update hit? If so, how long did it take?
Does anyone know what Google is penalizing these days?
Thanks for all your input.
