One of our client sites got hit by the most recent Panda/Payday update. The site is full of high-quality content, yet search traffic dropped to half of what we normally see. Anyone have experience with this? Since our focus with this site really is high-quality content, we've covered most of our bases in terms of best practices, which is why I'm stumped. Perhaps we've got bad links somewhere or something along those lines we aren't aware of? Thanks for any insight! @alexisgrant
Thanks for all of these ideas!
A quick update: Our SEO expert seems to think it's because of duplicate content. Ironically and interestingly, it's our syndication partners that are republishing our content -- big outlets like AOLJobs, Business Insider, Chicago Tribune, etc. -- but it looks like Google thinks we're the republisher rather than the content creator because those outlets are bigger. We're now taking steps to move away from allowing big outlets to republish our content!
