Dear Wysz, Our site has seen sudden drop from the google search results. We are running this site for last two years and as far as i understand people like this site. We have 8000 feedburner readers , nearly 500 likes on the facebook which suggests that it is not a spam site. Normally people dont subscribe to a site which has low quality conetnt as long as i understand. We get lots of comments and user ratings on our posts. For example "", on this page we have 344 user rating and 67 comments after moderation. Now what happened after recent algorithm change, our site is on the 5th or i dont know 7th page and the times of india's site which shows extracts from our site comes on the 1st page for the same post. Here is the link "". so the fact is content is still there on the first page via timesofindia. so if you think you have done a good algorithm change, then you must think about it again. Other thing is that webmaster tool shows that our site has nearly 30000 links from big sites like,,,,,,,, All big names with PR 3 to PR 7. Now they will come on the first page after the recent algorithm change for our posts and we will be on the 6th or 7th or i dont know where. Normally you dont argue to the king (google), but as you have given us a chance to speak thats why i am giving you these facts, as far as i understand the facts. We are not a content farm, we are only 8 people working as a team. But this change has made us zero again. Hope you will do something.
