The post titles don't target any keywords and the main traffic came from one keyword. I 've got a thin warning for the site but it's a video site? These videos aren't something I can write 500 articles about otherwise I would have done it but usually between 50 and 200 words.
I've had around 1,500,000 pageviews in the last 8 months and it was quite a good earner, with loads of social traffic etc, the content is a bit on the thin side but there's definately not a lack of user experience, my users love the site and it was targeted heavily through Adwords with advertisers. I can get up to 100 Facebook shares per page even without Google.
What do you think I should do?, I was going to dump the site completely or just leave it, I'm sure if they went through the backlinks they would see some spam there, but alot of good links too, and what the hell with the content? I don't know what they're trying to say with this message, the site tanked, I don't know why they would send it??
