Thanks,

How many interlinked sites do you own or manage?
Here's a few I found without digging very deep:


... and a lot of others that either correctly redirect to one of these listed or used to exist but appear to have been abandoned.

I'm also seeing a lot of article backlink and blog comment link spam.

I'd say you were artificially being elevated in the SERPS due to these factors and now they're no longer helping your rankings.
My recommendation would be to combine all your domains to one and clean up all the spam backlinks,

Looks like a normal algo change unless you see messages in Webmaster tools


The American Patio corporate affiliates are featured below. Please take a moment to visit our helpful affiliated sites. If you are interested in a link exchange please follow the steps below:

Looks like the old page was http://www.patio-umbrellas.com/services/links.html so  you recently removed it and change footer links to land on site map?

Also keyword stuffed, thin content

Dunno actually. But the name of the reason is irrelevant.
Rather than concern yourself with that, I'd instead focus on the issues traveler and I have uncovered.

Your first step is to remove your affiliate/link page - or at least nofollow those links.
Next should be to consolidate to one domain.
Then I'd spend equal time addressing the keyword stuffing and thin content as well as all the backlink spam.

Use the consolidation as an opportunity to drop the bulk of the backlink spam as well as eliminate pages without much depth and redesign the site with an eye to the visitor/consumer and a blind eye to Google.

That's what I'd do were I in your shoes.

oh wow - yes spend some time removing all those link exchange and spam.

That should take you a while to do. 

Or just rebuild with a new domain with good content.


Has the same issues with links.

My site  dropped substantially as well. There  is substantial chatter that  "something happen" on the 17th  I wish Google would tell me what I did wrong as well

Google Playing with us. Google updated and refresh and data of back link as i know that.

Now one question is, how we can get ranking again and with which strategics?

Same process which we are followed ya any other way.. Linking should be strong or not?

Currently SEO guys make a good PR back link as well as followed the good content after that ranking is went down now what should be?

lol, if this is what you think is "natural":
"We may choose to link to any of the following to improve your site’s staying power:
•  Authoritative sites (those with a high PageRank)
•  Forums
•  Directories
•  Blogs

That is all spamming!! No wonder you have got ranking problems!!

It is people like you that give the SEO industry such a bad name, You are NOT SEO's, you are spammers,

@KORPG Kevin & @Travler, On the same lines even i have seen a drop in the ranking for my website www.prettysecrets.com. It would be really helpful for me if you guys could evaluate my website and let me know possible mistake that i am doing while optimizing it.

Also there is some change in google Algo OR Google Search result now i can see multiple URL of the same domain getting listed in sequence one after the other, Kindly check the attached image for your ready reference.

Kindly help me as my site has started performing better(when it comes to Organic Visits and Transactions) since last few weeks.
