Helping webmasters diagnose website traffic issues.

Did your website traffic drop?  Trying to figure out if you’ve received a Google Penalty or been hit by an algorithm change?  Take the quiz, or read the articles and figure out why your website is not doing well in the search engines!

Note from Marie: This was a fun project that I created several years ago, but I have not kept it updated. I have now removed the quiz as a lot has changed in our understanding of Panda and Penguin over the last few years. 

Take the Quiz!

Alas..the Quiz no longer exists as I have not updated it in some time. 🙁

This quiz can help you determine if you’ve been affected by the Panda algorithm, the Penguin algorithm, an Unnatural Links Penalty or something else.


Penguin and Panda

About this site: I, ( Marie Haynes), created this website to help webmasters determine why their sites are not doing well in Google. As a frequenter of many SEO forums, I have been noticing that so many webmasters are desperate to find out why their traffic is dropping. I have also found that there is a lot of misinformation out there! Hopefully I have created an accurate guide, but I am always open to suggestions!


I would like to acknowledge these great folks for their input on this site!
