Traffic from Google dropped from 80% to 20%


A while ago I posted a thread saying that 80% of my traffic comes from Google in the search engine wars. However now Google has dropped behind terrribly. MSN and Yahoo are taking over... and Google, it seems has dropped down to around 20% of the share.

Could it be that Google has banned my site or excluded it from their search engine... It was going so well..

Has anyone else had the same problem?

Any one got any ideas on why this may happen?

You can check if you are still on google index with a search site:your-domain.com

If pages are still there, i dont think you got banned. May be someone is just doing better than you. Or something that makes you less attractive to google.

Hello!
I think that you need to know answers on the such questions:
How old is your web site for google? (Maybe you had newbie bonuces)
What black het SEO methods were used to rich your curent position?
There are factors which depend on you as webmaster (they are connected to your web site)
And there are factors which so not depend on you. And for that factors you can't be banned.

I now know that I am not banned, however my google search engine results have dropped.

I haven't used any fancy ways to get better rankings. Just the usual keywords, content and some links out there.

My site is only about 4 months old, and maybe it is still finding its feet.

I guess that was bonus for you from google. I think that you shouldn't sit and worry about that. I think that you have to go ahead and work on your web site SEO.

Google's algorithm changes from time to time. We just don't know why a site ranks high while the other site ranks low. But trust that Google is doing its best to give us the best search results.

last few month my website completely disappear from the first SERP and not even a trace in the search engine but now it is back in the first SERP again. I think at that period there are some changes with the algorithm.

Some things to look at as possible cause of yor dilema:

Competition - other sites vying for the same keyword
Decrease in the number of backlinks
Change in your content - onpage factors (titles, meta, etc.)
You are in the sandbox - google's way of filtering new sites
Your site was down when the bots last crawled your site
or - You got penalized

I wish they could just stick to some basics...Then maybe we may have some idea of what to do..

Do you get penalized for getting another site redirected to your site?

The algo will always evolve to try to produce better search results for people doing searches.. If you want ot remain near the top you just need to keep your knowledge current and never stop working on it..

As for getting penalized for a site redirecting to you, no, just the opposite in most cases.. The redirected site will get you their links and if you do it properly you can even gather up the credit for their content as well..

there maybe several resons,
1. Your website is out from a temporaty bump google gives to every domain.
2. You practised something which is bad in google's eyes.
3. google guys mistakenly did it.

But the bad thing is you need to bear ot for a moment, best you can do after a month in google webmasters area to improve things.
