Something going on? I see falls across multiple sites, small movements, but some falling to historic lows.
I noticed referrals from appen.io/assingments today, which I believe is appen.com, one company that Google uses to check the quality of its search results. The referrals started around the end of April and have visited just 5 fairly high traffic pages out of a 1K page site. 5 times each page. My visibility has increased with this most recent update.
Typical bounce back, aka turning back the dials on whatever thing they messed with. Google updates are rather predictable at this point, if not easy to solve for.Seeing this as well today. Traffic is up slightly after the last update.
It may recover, I have a few sites that were hit also, dropped out of 100. Some came back, not to the previous positions but still decent.Keyword sheeter got crushed on May 5th.
Ranking for basically nothing but brand terms now.
No more rankings for small topical sites with little history lol.
