Google Search impressions are laddering down for my wordpress blog
I am seeing the same drop after 7 years on WordPress. Very troubling.
So are 36 million other people. Sometimes Google makes changes that help us, and sometimes they make changes that hurt us. That’s how it goes.
With further research I believe that Penguin is penalizing my wordpress blog, as it links to my website and vice versa in many, many places. When we first set this up, we did this not to manipulate page rank, but rather to give our non-technical folks a way to contribute content. WordPress is still GREAT for that!
I have found that putting in rel=”nofollow” in all my main page menu items, as well as each link in my blog articles, is helping my # of impressions to ladder back up. However, this is taking a long time, as there is no batch edit capability (I checked) and I have over 400+ articles from our 10 years.
Too bad Google does not let me just notify them that my separate blog and website are all with the same company (as far as I can tell), so that I did not have to do these nofollows everywhere….
