    Lost numerous google ranking due to....???

    Hi again,

    Before I start another thread just want to say big thank you to all the people who give advices, tips and answer all my questions. Thanks again, I am hoping I will contribute to this forum too.

    So I lost this google ranking to be honest. Well...I have been actually loosing it since March 2018 but the current drop reminds of a free fall without end. I thought that might be due to migration
    from HTTP to HTTPS (I have gone through lots of threads on this) and Google would restore most of the ranking along with traffic but this hasn't happened since 3 months now. Unfortunately I am not being tech savvy and my SEO/WP building
    skills are very limited. I have got one SEO expert (well..I thought she was an expert) but things aren't looking good thus far as a good chunk of my keywords aren't even in top 50. I cross-checked the
    SSL certificate installation and it seems to be working fine (301 redirect is in place).

    So here I am..asking for an advise again and any kind of help will be much appreaciated. If moderator allows I can drop a link to my website - bestpennystocks2017.com

    Thanks again,

    I decided to take an in depth look at your site.

    I can see that you push something called microcap, welcome to the world of affiliate marketing.

    Now to your problem, to me it seems rather clear, so here goes....

    Lets look at this picture...

    What does it tell us...
    You have been busy building links for a few months and around March, your links started getting noticed !
    ( about the same time you started noticing a decline in traffic )

    There are 148 domains sharing 42 IP addresses providing 522 backlinks.
    That means approximately every 4 domains share the same IP address.
    That means every IP address is providing between 12 and 13 backlinks.

    This is a very heavy footprint indicating manipulation if you ask me.
    Could be link building is your problem, just a guess.

    Now also let us talk about your backlinks. Most of them are probably not helping you. Some come from a couple of questionable sources. Then there are most of the links that have been built over the last few months. Most have been edited to have the "NoFollow" tag added. Most of the forex forums from what I can tell and a large portion of your links in general
    Of your 522 links, a large portion have had the links removed. That leaves you about 129 that link back.
    Of the 129, 47 have modified the link adding the "NoFollow" tag.

    You now have approximately 82 links that can actually affect your site one way or the other.
