    Looks like 4 updates happened all at once, which really makes sorting things out difficult. Barry has a great chart about this here:

    The latest updates just follow Google's plan: Give credit to brands and penalise people trying to manipulate / gain rankings without deserving it. Buying a poor domain name (such as 3-4 word domains which use a preposition, or obvious commerical words like 'buy' or 'sell') and doing very little work (few links, poor content) is not enough and should never been. Getting automated links or 100's of low quality links is likewise usually leading to problems rather than good rankings in Google..

    Your statement glosses over the difficulty of becoming a brand without having a large bankroll and a competent team of people - not resources which the average person has.

    Not sure why a brand "deserves" to outrank a passionate and knowledgeable person who may have a much more informative and helpful website than something developed by corporate drones.

    1. Agree. It's not always that easy for small businesses. But what I believe is the main reason for most websites getting penalised: They relay mostly on 'unnatural anchor text' and don't build links like brands, while often working too little with content..

    2. There are many reasons why search engines would trust brands. Some include:
    -If you do something really well, people will remember you/your site as a brand and search for it in search engines.
    -Brand behavior can be plenty of searches for your URL (eg. examples.com) in Google. That is also a 'brand search'.
    -It's natural & more genuine to link to 'brand names' or 'company names' but not very trustworthy to use anchor text such as 'buy viagra' or 'payday loans'.. that is usually a behavior of people trying to take advantage of the algorithm.

    My site www.legalisecannabis.co.uk has been kicked to page 2. It has always been in the first few results for the term since forever, no content to speak of, just relying on the EMD for the high ranking results. I also added a load of Amazon aff products to it recently which may have caused the drop but I'm not sure if it is coincidence or what. I'll delete all the aff products and see if it jumps back again.

    I believe it's simply been too long without any new decent incoming links and any new content uploaded. By fixing that you are likely to come back to the first page rather quick.

    With all due respect, you are talking out of your arse.

    i dont know about getting back to the first page quickly but the new content, new links point seems viable, and would largely match my own experience with the recent updates.
