Hi,

For the past 6-12 months our website has been on the first-second page results on google, now all of a sudden it is gone from there.

The website is Frivcon.com and the keyword in question is "friv". Here is a shortcut to the google results @ https://www.google.com/search?client=safari&rls=en&q=friv&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&pws=0

We have been fairly actively improving the look and feels of our website, our social media efforts, and also our SEO. I cant recall the team doing any "aggressive" seo to get the website penalized or de listed.

How can I find out the reason the website has dropped in ranking so quickly? yesterday it was at #10-#12.

Any help is appreciated.

Mr Alexander

    You need to optimize your website again, looking at your website title alone, it is over optimized and too long.

      Thanks for the answer, i am not sure what is meant by optimizing it again, thats what we are doing already. Unsure how we went from #10-#12 to not found overnight while doing the same practices as before.

        It could be always starting from a bad backlink to a link bombing for example. Check your backlinks. Do check your content for possible duplications!

    I started a thread yesterday with a title "Anyone noticing ranking drop today?". Some update had happened yesterday but I guess not many people were affected by this. If you skim through Blackhat and WebmasterWorld forum you will see handful of people reporting rank drops.

    Over 10% on your main keyword, it`s not good, keep it under 5%, build more generic, LSI anchors, it`s probably some automatic penalty related to anchor over optimizing.

    I have ranked a year ago the similiar website on the No2 in about 20 countries (subpages), reall flood of traffic (: a lot of people fighting to rank this keyword.

    And as I see you have duplicate content in the description of some games, I just checked several only but it may be also the problem with rank your website higher.

      @npoint, what was the name of your website? Is it still around?

      @iamrichard2, how can you tell we were hit by the penalty?

      build more diversity?

    You were hit by algorithmic penalty.

    Just build more diversity and you will pop back up. easy
