I posted to a google forum yesterday and received this response (in 2nd paragraph) as to why my 10 year old wordpress site is suddenly getting penalized in google search (my # of impressions is laddering down rapidly).
Google forum response (from a top contributor) to why my #s are going down: "interlinking of this site with your other sites, as well as many other sites, with dofollow (rank-passing) links."
When I read your forum on dofollow, I found something from 2009 saying this is no longer important. Is that still true? Or should I go into every blog post, find every link, and make them all "rel=nofollow"?
We have never seen anything like this drop in our 10 years of using wordpress. If you know of anything else going on that I should check, I would greatly appreciate it. We are going to be at zero impressions soon if this keeps up.
Here is what we are seeing with impressions per day (peaks):
until April 4th = 2,000
April 4th - April 24th = 1,600 (3 weeks)
April 25th - May 7th = 1,300 (2 weeks)
May 8th - May 16th = 900 (1 week)
May 17th = 700
The blog I need help with is netequalizernews.com.
