I'm not sure I'll get them, but I need some exact responses on the following SEO issue.
My websites have been hit by a google penalty which makes the targeted keywords appear on the last page of the google results. For example, if my website was nr.1, now its on the last page, last result.
Reading about it, this penalty is called the minus 950.
Now, my websites are EMD's.
Do you know if there is a correlation between this behavior and the EMD update?
Extrapolating on this, could there be a correlation between the behavior above and the Panda or Penguin update?
I'm asking because I can't pinpoint the cause of the minus 950 penalty.
Folks on webmaster wold say it's because of onsite overoptimization.
I have fixed this before the holidays, now on a few test sites... the keyword density is under 1% for every word.
My hunch is that this is a mixed penalty - between links, over optimization, EMD, etc.
What are your thoughts?
