    Google ranking penalty: Limited to specific pages or complete website?


    Hi all,

    Let's say few pages on the website dropped in the rankings due to poor optimisation of the pages or hit by algo updates. Does Google limits the ranking drop only to these pages or the entire website will have any impact? I mean will this cause ranking drop to the homepage for primary keyword? Will Google pose the penalty to other pages in the website if few pages drop in the rankings.

    Thanks

    - Did you get any message in Google console about the penalty?
    - What pages in your website has dropped?
    - Did you have a recent update of these pages?
    - When did you lose your ranking?

    If it is link building that got you into trouble, then probably to the page. Penguin is reported to operate that way per Google. Since Google also ranks web pages, not web sites, then it could be pages for the most part, and if a manual penalty was issues, then the site as in blacklisted.

    This is just my opinion.

    What activities have you been doing ?
