Quite recently, there was mayhem when top ranking websites suddenly lost their rankings, resulting in a considerable dip in traffic. To sum it up, Google SERPS began to display unacceptable websites with broken links, spammy content, and you name it. It’s nothing like what we can accept from Google.
Google couldn’t have chosen a better time to bring a bug into their system. Together with the economic meltdown, it was serious concern for webmasters. Well, they admitted that it was a bug in their algorithm that went away unnoticed and causing this huge shift in rankings. However, it’s all sorted now, and things are back to normal.
