The first step in understanding if your site has been a victim of an algorithm update or penalty is to verify your organic traffic levels. Dig deeper to determine if the drops are solely from one search engine. If not, then an algorithm update or penalty are likely not the cause, since they would only affect transfer from one search engine.

Google announced innovative updates to its Google Places bulk location management tool this week, with a new Google+ social feature. Each location in upgraded and verified accounts will have social features routinely enabled. To use social features on a picky location, like making a post, please hover over Live in the status column and click on the Google+ icon.
Also, Wang supposed each Google Places page will now have only one established owner: This ensures that multiple verified users for the same location are not routinely overwriting each other’s business information.
