The last couple of weeks I noticed a steep increase in the daily visits to my SW modeling research site. A closer look revealed that the increase was due to Google showing me some love. As you can see in the graphic, the proportion of visits coming from (organic, no paid ads for the site) searches has almost doubled. This, for that site, means around 200 visits more per day.
It’s curious that this is happening almost exactly one year after the same site got hit by the Google penguin. As I reported then, we could say that there was a valid reason (albeit external and unintentional) for the hit, I perfectly understand how nerve-wracking the continuous updates on google algorithms must be for all those site owners whose income mainly depends on their ranking in google.
Even if with one year of delay, I hope this is an example that the “content is king” motto is still valid (if you manage to survive long enough…)
Be sociable, share!
