    Interesting read KOS looks like it's a core update that cant be fixed and has to do with the medical industry.

    Yeah, it does... I heard some complaints from some that are not in the medical niche, it appears to have affected every site a little. I have noticed that starred review listings seem on decline, but will what to wait on that for more input. It just may be happenstance that the two have occured at the same time

    I have been in the game 9 years and I would put my money on links. This is another huge cull. Coupled with various tweaks like devaluing the impact of silo architecture to the homepage. Google is all smoke and mirrors. There are hundreds of big PBN networks out there that are so good they are actually real websites with real traffic and ranks that you could say they are not PBNS , but yes they are! They are there for links only. Big boys buy from big boys. Back in the day Google would look back at links for up to 7 generations. It doesn't take long before there is a knock on effect. Think about it.

    Well said. Can you believe there are some people who call themselves SEO experts who still think ranks are controlled solely by an unbiased algorithm?
