    I use to have a strong place on the first page for a keyword, but now I see I am out of the top 100 completely on Google.

    I am not sure when this happened exactly, but it almost seems like I’ve been penalized. Anybody have any idea what might explain this? I’m struggling to figure this out.

    Google recently updated its algorithm, a big one last Sept and this year. if it happened recently, most likely a result of these updates. Look into Bert for more information.

    If you tell more than 100 spots, you got caught doing something very naughty.

    How does the site perform in terms of speed? I’ve seen some big losses over 2017-2020 with sites that haven’t kept up on mobile first algo’s page load speed stringency. If you’re article is mostly text, see if someone has skyscraper’d you- a competitor may have created something
