Yes GA4 sucks I am also unable to understand how the hell it works , so I decided to use present analytics until it expires which seems 1 year for now

Yep.. Here's an example from 1 minute ago: I've been frustrated with Google Analytics 4 lately (because GA4 sucks, and everyone knows it except Google, apparently) ... so I just did a search for <i>"Is Google working on GA5"</i> The results I got were ALL about Grand Theft Auto. (Which needless to say, would be "GTA5" not "GA5" ... and why the hell would Google be working on Grand Theft Auto anyway?). Not only that, the first 4 results were videos. I should also add that my search history for the last 2 weeks has been mostly GA4 "how to" searches. Honestly, these are just crap search results. I swear Google was significantly better at figuring out what I wanted, just last month. Useless.

Yes it seems like the top couple results are very relevant then the rest are almost like cool related articles you might be interested in. Almost like how YouTube does it lol. So weird.

Same thing to me mate on multiple sites. It's like an on/off filter based on how they see your content quality or something. So annoying because I either rank 1 for everything or disappear completely.

<blockquote>Let's hope this will fix some issues and help us regain our rankings...</blockquote> https://i.imgur.com/nibk9Pn.gif I want to be an optimist, but I think it's much better for me not to hope anything, and just move on. If I keep clinging to something here, it's just gonna be depressing when it doesn't. I'd like to learn what others have found out and implement those suggestions, but hoping for something better seemed to be the most useless so far 😂

There is no transparency We do not understand what is required of these updates

That's brutal. I thought my traffic was stressful, but that's crazy. Ugh! I'm sorry that's happening to you.

I'm seeing some rise in rankings from Ahrefs today, but nothing special. A lot of them keep dropping as well. Traffic slightly better than yesterday, but still worse than Tuesday from last week. Hopefully, some of you guys are seeing much better results.

I'm so sorry, Dan. Hopefully, you'll bounce up again soon enough. If not, time to make new site and keep going.

Lost all ranked keywords, and google traffic came down to "0" from over "100" per day. Lost everything (100%) from last 24th June.

Tadeusz Szewczyk (Tad Chef) commented on Google To Pay Wikipedia For Content Displayed In Knowledge Panel & Search Results

It's about time they pay for that content. Why did it take so long? Sounds like the mounting pressure by lawmakers in the US, EU and beyond has some beneficial side-effects. Now that Wikipedia makes money officially contributors should be paid as well.

Yes, it's awful. Got competition outranking me with pages that are very weakly related just because the phrase is on the page by chance.

It doesn't result in converting sales and often from foreign countries.

How do you define and recognise "zombie" traffic?

Google is giving me panic attacks. 170K daily impressions to 15K impressions. That is a decrease of over 90%. And this has happened twice in last 30 days. This is soo depressing.. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/6e7c4453d535bfefe771ae3c93e1210ce33cdccae72efae3550944d423e0212c.jpg

<blockquote>Google's attempts at guessing the search-intent have gotten significantly worse lately?</blockquote> Either they do deliberately to maximize the monetization or arising from their incompetence.

What is a core hit? Where did this term come from?

Anyone else noticing how Google's attempts at guessing the search-intent have gotten significantly worse lately? ... Just musing about whether this dynamic is part and parcel of declining search performance somehow.

UncleKrusty commented on Google Search Ranking Algorithm Update Brewing Again June 27-28th

Doesn't much matter since the Google inflicted damage has already been done for real businesses with commercial locations (not working from kitchen table/basement) who were already hanging by a thread in this crap economy. It's not as if we weren't struggling with finding/affording labor and materials to produce items in the USA thanks to political leaders who have their heads up their behinds. If you resell China junk on Amazon, sourced from Alibaba, you are probably rocking right now. If there's one good thing that happened from these recent updates its stopping all ads on Google. The sh!t traffic Google is sending covers both free and paid traffic. Bing, Yahoo, FB are driving 99% of our sales at the moment. Thankfully people are still finding us despite the choke hold Google has on us.

NewWorldDisorder commented on Google Search Ranking Update Spiking June 23rd

With the core update, Google culled small biz sales by greater than 50% in some cases from my observations. My guess is the shuffling going on right now is to take what remains so only ChinaZon (Amazon), ChinaMart (Walmart) and other major distributors of Communist made slave labor goods remain.

I think he's saying that there seems to be something going on today. I'm seeing changes too.
