    Unhappy Completely lost my Google ranking.


    Hello all,

    This is my first time posting on here, be kind. The issue I have is that I recently hired a coder to make some simple alterations to my WooCommerce eCommerce site. Suddenly the ranking I had which also was an extended listing disappeared.
    The work has finished and there is no issues with the code. I use the Yoast SEO plugin.

    I have future plans to implement an informative blog roll, Google keywords, social media and public advertising.

    Any advice on this?

    Thanks in advance,

    - Matt Walker

    If the traffic drop occurred around august, you may be experiencing the effects of google latest algorithm update. It was an update designed to decreasing the SERP of sites with affiliate links.

    It's hard to say what needs to be changed until one finds out what was changed and what was there before the change. In other words what simple alterations??
    titles, content, structure. More information is needed.

    Are you tracking your site using Google analytics? First, if you are not, I would highly recommend this. If you are using Google analytics, I would go in and find the approximate date that you started losing traffic. Does it line up with a major algorithmic update? Then you may possibly have been affected by that. Was it relatively soon after you made the changes to you site? Then likely whatever changes you made on your site affected your ranking.

    Giving advice all depends on the kinds of changes you made. I've seen sites that inadvertently removed their internal linking structure when making changes and lost traffic from that. I also agree with justgoweb above...if you changed any pages, make sure to implement 301 redirects from the old pages to the new pages to pass along the page power.

    Hi Matt, all about google dance... did you know % ratio for UK domain is less when compare to other geo in matter of keywords position drifting..
    This is the dilemma im facing aswell as the fact that if things don't turn around in the next few months we may be closing our doors for good which is a shame after 11 years of trading which has been wiped out by a single google update where as all the other updates didn't really affect us.
