In this video, I’m going to take a look at one of my websites that was hit hard by the recent December Google Algorithm update which saw a 50% drop in traffic. I show my google analytics, webmaster tools and look at what happened to my keyword ranking in SEMRUSH which I use to track keyword ranking in google.

I will also discuss what I think may have caused my ranking and traffic to drop as well as what I plan on doing going forward to regain my previous ranking and more.

I have always recovered from a google core update and are confident I can recover over the coming months.
