It was getting about 600-900 visitors a day.
Then poof its gone, and you have been hit with a sitewide manual penalty for "pure spam". Which I have no idea how, because all of the content is original, 1500-2500 words, and helpful. According to my stat tracker, the average time on site was over 3 min, and the bounce rate was 22%. But when you look at google analytics, those stats are different, so who knows.
I honestly believe that in some niches, google does not want certain sites at the top, therefore they slap a penalty on them... does anyone else feel this way at all?
Anyway, would you try to get the action removed, or start over? The site has about 15 pages fyi...
If I were to try to get the penalty removed, where would I even start?
