OK, one of my sites was penguined. At the moment, no idea why.

 

I have interlinked my sites in the past (partly blogroll links, partly as articles were moved to more specific websites), so removed some of my own links.

 

Guessing I should now wait until the refresh before looking beyond what I can change myself. But, how often is the refresh?

Let it settle in...You more than likely have nothing to change anything or it has nothing to do with your site as to why you dropped...it's the trickle down that could have taken you down. You more than likely need to rebuild what you lost from this trickle down.

It has taken over 6 months between this update and the previous one.

So there are no refreshes between updates?

With Penguin is the common problem that the whole site just drops a bit?

 

I was hit by Panda, and specific pages got hammered, while others actually improved. I am now seeing more or less the same percentage of visits to the most popular pages, but just fewer across the board.

 

This does make me think that my problem is that some old seo (directories etc) is just not working now, rather than I have been penalised specifically. But, no idea how to know!

 

I will carry on and focus on what I have been doing in the last 2 years (writing better content etc.) and hope that I get some new links that are liked more.

 

Still on first page for some important keywords (important in terms of sales) but dropping 3 places certainly hurts.

Hmmm, that's a bit annoying isn't it?

Links and link juice have made a shift with-in the last year.

Penguin 2.o hit a bunch of link networks, so who ever they were pumping up lost juice, and who ever they were linking to also lost juice..hence the trickle down.

I think that's why the impact was 2.3% of queries.

I think your on the right path with:

Penguin 2.0 is the major update and it confirmed only 2.3% English-US queries effected.

Only 2.3%? 

 

2.3% is a lot of websites. There are probably around 700 million websites, so Penguin2 may be affecting around 16,000,000 websites. 

 

So really, only a relatively very few webmasters know or care about its affect on their website.

 

Note - all stats could be total BS

 

Some stats: http://royal.pingdom...012-in-numbers/

 

From that page, this is interesting: "43% – Share of the top 1 million websites that are hosted in the U.S."

 

That's a big chunk.
