Since last year, traffic to CraftGossip.com has dropped by almost 100%. And most of this traffic has gone away from us via Google. Because Google thinks we are a SPAM site because we don’t provide long blog posts.
The problem is that CraftGossip is a review site – we find nearly 40 great craft ideas daily. Writing long reviews of almost self describing articles is not going to work for anyone – not for us and not for you.
But we like what we do. We like writing short snappy reviews with one image and a quick link to our great find. And if we change that, we will no longer be useful to our audience.
So that is why – we are putting this appeal to our existing loyal audience. Help us stay afloat by telling Google that we are a legitimate site that provides real value.
You can do this by the following ways.
1. Click here and fill the short form and tell Google that we are a valuable site.
2. If you’re on Twitter – tweet to Matt Cutts (Google’ rep) and tell him that CraftGossip should not be penalized for doing what it does best.
3. Please share this post with as many of your Facebook friends as you can. The more people fill out that form and/or Tweet to Matt Cutts – the better our chances.
From all the editors at CraftGossip.
