A few of my sites were hit a little hard (perhaps rightfully so on 1 or 2 of them that I have let slide), but one of my sites that took a hit is regularly updated with top-notch, quality content and it's slipped to page 6; there are 30+ sites of crap now resting before me - total MFA garbage... lame. There are no bad links pointing at my site either. I don't get it.
Here's a great example a friend pointed out: Do a search for the term, "dumb debt" - for me, the site dumbdebt (dot) com is in position 3... Take a look at all that great content... It's been like that for a month now.
So what gives? I don't claim that Google has an easy task before them, I just think they were doing a better job before this last update. :confused:
