Improvise penalization ranking
my name is Alessandro and together with my wife Marianna I have been running a wedding planning business for two years, dealing mainly with foreigners who are planning to get married in Italy.
I don't know if the policy of the community allows users to communicate the website subject of the issue, however our website can be visited at the link www.makedaweddingplanner.com
We entrusted our SEO implementation to an agency and they immediately gave us an editorial plan in order to publish articles in regards to the wedding sector.
The first six months (from April to September 2019) we achieved interesting results.
Our keywords that we have worked on the most and that interest us more are
"wedding planner italy"
"wedding planner tuscany"
"wedding planner rome"
"wedding planner Amalfi"
"wedding planner sorrento"
Around last October (I believe due to the latest google updates) the keyword "wedding planner Tuscany" from position 27 disappeared from the top 100 positions, and the keyword "wedding planner rome" from position 12 passed to position 40.
The keyword "wedding planer italy" has remained unchanged. We do not understand why it did not appear in the top 100 positions even before the google update….
However the agency did not explain us the reason.
In any case, our concern mainly concerns the keywords "wedding planner Italy", "wedding planner Rome" and "wedding planner Tuscany".
Regarding "wedding planner Tuscany" we are surprised that we have totally disappeared from the top 100 positions.
With "Wedding planner Rome" we arrived at the position 40 (in September we were at position 12).
However, we don't understand why the keyword "wedding planner Italy" has always been excluded from the first 100 position ranking of Google.
The SERP results to which I refer concern the research carried out by the USA (area from which we obtain more customers).
To monitor the situation we use the portal serprobot.com.
Could you give us some useful advice on what happened with these three keywords in particular?
The company that follows us has failed to give us convincing explanations.
We were told that there were dubbed keywords on the website but we wonder why they didn't notice it before.
We have now removed the dubbed keywords and a month has passed since then, but we have not seen any improvements for the keyword "wedding planner tuscany".
We have seen an improvement only for "wedding planner Rome" but only for 6 positions (from 40 to 34).
For "wedding planner italy" nothing has changed.
To conclude, there is also to consider a possible mistake that we made.
In writing these articles from April to September 2019, we often copied texts from other websites written in italian and translated them with google translator into English by making small changes to the text, and correcting it as much as possible and then posting them in our blog.
Initially google did not penalize us for this, indeed it made us go up a lot in the ranking. But then what happened?
Is it possible that Google is now able to trace the original text in Italian and penalize me because I translated it into English and posted it on my website?
In any case, to intervene on this possible problem we have tried as much as possible to modify the texts already written on our blog making them as authentic as possible.
Thank you very much for your valuable support
