    Traffic decreased - resonsideration request (no errors) - automatic content


    Hi guys,

    I have to post some questions regarding my website: http://goo.gl/m60ri
    This site is online since October 2012 and the traffic increased. So everything was fine.
    In January 2013 we integrated some XML data and developed our own data comparison which you can find here: Quotenvergleich / TRILEDO.
    We use these data also in the event articles.

    Since March 2013 the traffic decreased a lot and we couldnīt find the reason for this.

    Further google stoped to uplead these comparison sites to the index which is also very confusing. Only 1/3 from our sites is in the google index.
    A reconsideration request showed no errors or manual spam action on our site but it seems that google dislike anything we are doing on the site.
    We had a good listing for the article names but currently this is all gone. Only some of our FAQīs sites still have good ranking.

    Here are all the current and past actions from my website:

    We upload articles sometimes on a daily basis but at least 2-3 times a week.
    internal linking on the website (maybe too much?)
    we publish new promotions and reviews
    Affiliate Links (nofollow) + Banner Placements
    Integration of XML Data (automatic content) but still a very good feature - currently we set all automatic content pages to "noindex" unfortunately without any positive effect - the traffic decreased even more.
    some linkexchance with quality sites with related contend
    we have reduced the amout of words in the articles for some time (around 200, sometimes less) currently we are back to very detailed articles but with no positive effect. (btw: we write unique content)
    We also launched a new website called http://goo.gl/F2ix3 where we also integrated our comparison feature (maybe this is duplicate content for google?)
    Further there is one unimportant website wettbonusonline.com - Bonus, Bookies, Vergleich, Sportwetten, Buchmacher which is possibly over optimized and contains too much links to our main project?

    I think thats all for now. We try to provide good quality conent articles with some good additional features like the data comparison but it seems that google dislike some parts or currently the complete website.

    Something is definitly wrong and therefore after many updates and trial and errors I have to post these questions here in the forum.

    I look foward to any reply that could help to sort out the problem on my site.

    Thanks a lot!

    One 15 second look at your domain and I can tell you need a new hobby.

    If you can't understand the similarities between this example and your domain... Matt Cutts and Eric Talk About What Makes a Quality Site you have no hope of recovering.

    What the hell did I just click? It looks like something that would popup if you accessed a porn site; not that I would know that first hand.

    Hi fathom,

    many thanks for posting this article. I absoutly understand what Matt Cutts is talking about, I read the whole article.
    i thought that our articles have a good qualitly like the previews the team checks and also some tipps and stats.

    i would really appreciate if you could be more specific and if you could provide me some specific suggestions how we can improve and afterwards to recover our ranking, because the ranking was pretty good at the beginning or lets say after 3-4 months we launched the page.

    thank you!

    I'm not a sport fan but how many other domains have "previews the team checks," "some tipps," and "stats"?

    Answer: LOTS!

    What products or services do you offer?

    Answer: NONE!

    Why does Google need your domain?

    Answer: IT DOESN'T!

    You appear to have ADSPACE only and for that to work (as in, driving traffic for clicks & $$$$) your domain material needs to immaculate.

    Good quality isn't enough.
