Google Algorithm Change – Mahalo Packs It's Bags

You wanna know how important organic search engine traffic is to some sites?

Check out what Mahalo.com said (*courtesy of Marshable Stan Schroeder*:

site founder Jason Calacanis wrote in an e-mail to employees.

“The Google changes have led to a significant dip in our traffic and revenue. It’s hard not to be disappointed since we’ve been spending millions of dollars on producing highly professional content,” explains Calacanis. Due to the dip in traffic, Mahalo will lay off 10% of its staff and temporarily halt its freelance content production.

Oh snap!

Google Algorithm Change – EzineArticles Expects 50% drop

Read what Chris Knight, CEO of EzineArticles.com, has to say about the change -> here

snipet:

“While we adamantly disagree with anyone who places the “Content Farm” label on EzineArticles.com, we were not immune to this algorithm change. Traffic was down 11.5% on Thursday and over 35% on Friday. In our life-to-date, this is the single most significant reduction in market trust we’ve experienced from Google.”

Make sure to keep diversified traffic as you don't own Google and free clicks can come at a price if that is the ONLY way you are generating traffic or capturing leads.

This is such a devastating blow. I wonder how this will affect banklink juice. The question now is does google consider backlinks from these sites as less of an authority?

    Lawrence Tam · March 4, 2011 at 5:01 pm

    i’m seeing about a 10% drop from my article sites and even to this blog…. ;(

Lets just hope Google doesn’t slap the Android OS too so you can’t call your leads…
