    Angry My page rank and visits dropped suddenly..


    My page was at the top of 1st page the last years but suddenly it appears in the 2nd - 3rd page. I did not chane anything, no errors in console.. Any idea what could have caused this?
    Thank you!

    This is indicative of an algorithmic penalty. Everything is fine and then one day your site drops out of site.

    How many links have you built for the site. How many sites providing those links?

    He said he did not change anything, so it could be any number of things, might be time to hire someone.

    Thank you for replies!
    Could it be that I did not update my site the last months, so it may seem to Google as abandoned? Or maybe some Google algorithms changed at the time of the drop and what seemed to Google correct till then is not correct now? I can not understand why did I get a penalty..

    Still hard to say without spending time going through the data and figuring out why.
    And sorry I dont have the time to evaluate your site, even for a fee, truthfully you can't afford me.
    Try some of the others in my link.

    It looks like your issue may be the Aug 1st update. Did you traffic drop on Aug 1st or the 6th?

    Hello hariskar

    I do believe I know what your problem is... I asked earlier if you had been building links.... the answer is yes, in the past and quite possible within the last 6 months.



    Your site is in the medical industry, here is Google's translated view of your homepage, I don't read Greek, sorry. I honestly don't think your site violates any of the Medic Update of August per se. Medical related sites have been brought under closer examination. Maybe the Medic Update brought your link building practices to surface or maybe it was just coincidental and they were detected at the same time the update rolled out. It really doesn't matter why they have come to light, what matters is Google has found them.

    Notice you have on average 56 links per domain. Without much exception (exceptions were rare, almost non-existent) all are placed on sites for rank manipulation and sites that are toxic to you. The vast majority of your IBLs point to your homepage btw.

    You have in my opinion been hit with a algorithmic penalty for shoddy link building aka, Penguin is munching on your rankings. You need to fix your backlink profile immediately if your want your site to come back.

    Edited to add...
    You need to search the forum and read about "Where Not To Post Links To Your Site".
    My other suggestion would be to continue being the best Biopathologist that you can, but hire this out to a qualified person / agency.

    Thank you for reply. So do I have to remove my url from all irrelevant sites that point to my site? If yes, I have to remove almost all links..
