    Ranking drop between april 09 and 16 - Fred update?


    Hi, i had a huge ranking drop on one of my sites between april 09 and 16. I thought maybe its just temporary but my rankings still havent recovered from these event.

    I was looking for an update, an answer and found out that there was an update in march called fred. Could these be the reason for these ranking-drops our should the effect of fred be seen earlier (march) or is it still ongoing?

    Best regards

    Fred was a little different to most updates, yes it was released on 6th march but it appears from my experience to only downgrade pages once it re-crawled them. So it is possible even a month later to still be seeing drops in position / traffic.

    The one good thing (i guess) I have been seeing a bit of a bounce over the last few days, its a bit early to say for sure but it appears that Fred may have been tweaked down a little as it may have been a bit too aggressive.

    Does your site contain a lot of adverts or affiliate links, if so that seems to be what Fred was looking for.
    IMHO
