Our site, www.EnvironmentalLeader.com, took quite a hit with the new algorithm change and I really can't figure out why. We're a b2b news site serving enterprise environmental and sustainability executives, highly regarded in our space by the professionals we serve, we have a handful of writers on staff working hard to write original content, we've been around since 2006, have labored over the years to amass 10,000 original stories (we publish 8 or so stories a day), send our newsletter to 20K+ opt-in subscribers, have F100 company execs writing original columns for us, and put out original research reports and hold industry webinars. We're not a huge company, are 100% bootstrapped and working hard to build something.
We're referenced and linked to by top media, universities and government sites. We don't stuff stories with keywords, always link to other sites when we reference other reporting and generally try to be good web citizens and add to the conversation. We had a PR 7 for years, which dropped to PR6 during the January PR update.
We've dropped hundreds of spots on some search words that used to drive traffic to our content.
I'm really at a loss as to why we've taken this hit. Would love to have someone at Google take a look and reevaluate or get some insight if possible on what we might be doing wrong. Thanks.
