    Since the major update the day before, google has been spidering my pages like crazy! I mean, it's like on a mission to eat em up completely as if it wasn't enough to stop sending the traffic. It's eaten up GIGABYTES of data from my sites in a matter of two days...

    The big question - Why?

    Well to quote Buddha

    "All things appear and disappear because of the concurrence of causes and conditions. Nothing ever exists entirely alone; everything is in relation to everything else."

    Seems that maybe Buddha is making an influence on Google Meister.

    2 weeks before the update. Google ate up all 3500 of my new pages.

    The update hit and I've lost about 30% of traffic.

    Now, Google is back and eating up pages like crazy. It already has everything... but it is back again.

    Don't know why and was wondering that myself.

    Google's munching away at my pages as well. I've completely lost some pages (in google) on my main site, though oddly the home page is still ranking OK. I mean that high ranking searches I knew about that my home page had are pretty much OK. It's the subpages that are gone in many cases.

    I don't know how much of this is the new algo, vs. the fact I was semi-down for a day last month due to my hosting provider botching an ISP move. My gut says it's the algo...

    Since the update....

    I've pretty much lost ALL google traffic (except for 1 keyword... thank god it's christmas-related).
    However, what I lost from google, i regained from Yahoo!?!

    Next... Is the google dance actually over? Because google is showing SERPS of my site from subdomains which no longer exist (and google had already followed the 301's to the new locations yet now it started showing the OLD site again)

    There is something very strange going on with Google. After 2 years and a lot of hard work I managed to get some really good listings but since the update I've literally been "Googled"!! The weird thing is that, each time you run a search, you seem to get a different result. Last night when I did a search for a particular keyword string I found two of my listings back on the first page. This morning I ran the same search and one of them had dropped back to page 6 - the other one just disappeared. Google used to account for around 70% of my traffic before the update - now I can count the number of referrals per day on one hand. Yahoo and MSN traffic has increased dramatically, but my best converting pages don't seem to have been picked up yet by these two. This is all extremely frustrating as it is definitely having a negative impact on sales.

    Grumpy,

    Welcome to the Google Boat, just rework your pages and figure the new algorithm. I too was hit, but back in August. Been dead at google since.. but I'm laughing all the way to the brick poop house.

    Beside, I got my chest nuts roasting on the open fire, bill collectors nipping at my nose. Everybody knows a few lost sales and mistletoe help to make the season blight. yada yada yada...

    But Merry Christmas to you and all.

    Love

    Poopie

    And a Merry Poopie Christmas to you too . I definitely won't lose any sleep over this for the next few days, but in the New Year I will try and think of a cunning plan to outsmart Google and get those rankings up again.

    Dittos to that. I'm probably going to go over my bandwidth limit this month and it must be Googlebots doing it, cuz they sure haven't been sending humans in any great numbers!
