    Are we getting penalized ?


    Hi!

    Our website used to get daily 120,000 visitors from google thru serps on around 90,000 keywords.

    Starting from last monday, the traffic started reducing and now on saturday it was 58,000 visitors came thru 38,000 keywords on google.

    Is this some thing like google is panalizing us? what happed if google panalized any website? did it got dropped immediately or start dropping slowly ?


    any one can help ?

    When you get penalized, google removes you from index and your site could not be seen any more in serps.

    you can check by site:www.domain.com (your URL)

    droping in serps could be that competition sites get from time better optimization ..
    You must work on links because they get you on good position in serps.

    sometimes a penalty can occur where your ranking drops, not necessarily removed from the index.

    As posted, have you changed anything recently?
