Google Downgrades .Info TLDs Again?

Just over a week ago, we had reports that Google dropped most .info TLDs from the search results.

Today, we are getting more early reports of the same thing happening, after it recovered quickly last time. We have reports from DigitalPoint Forums and new posts at the old WebmasterWorld thread.

Here are some quotes:

Looks like Google is doing more experimenting - my .info is once again gone from the SERPS.

I have lost again 90% of my traffic.... like 23 may.

The discussion on this new findings is brand new. It may be a Google glitch with .info TLDs are it may be totally unrelated.

Forum discussion at DigitalPoint Forums and WebmasterWorld.

W h a t e v e r I’m thinking of ignoring Google at all, first they wanted us to stop selling links (lots of webmasters mail income (killing their online business and lives), now Google Adsense requires to add privacy on our sites. OK, so what the? Now when G is “BIG”, they act like all of the sites belong to them, G says add this, all webmasters does to avoid bans, G says do that, they do.

Google tries to find what the user needs, not what the webmaster needs. Create good content and they will come...
