This past month, we had a fairly significant Google algorithm ranking update on February 7th which Google did not confirm so we suspect it was a Phantom update. Then shortly after, Google penalized Natural News and they were back in the index a few days later after a ton of controversy. Google Image search in Germany, France and some other countries changed resulting in the appearance of traffic loss.

Here is last month's Google recap if you missed it.
