Hulu Google Traffic Drop & Return A Penalty Or Human Error?

Google Hulu Ranking

I didn't see much coverage of the Hulu Google organic search drop outside of a post by Bartosz Goralewicz over here but after a two or so week drop in Google organic placement and traffic, Hulu is back.

All the tools to track this concur including SEM Rush, Search Metrics and Sistrix. Here are charts showing the huge drop off and then return of traffic:

But it all seems back to normal.

The speculation was that there was a human error in the Hulu web site that caused this and once fixed, it took Google a bit of time to pick up on the change.

If so, that was one expensive human error.
