    Hey there, our website lost 80 visitors at the beginning of this month. Most of our websites disappeared from the initial page in Google. We researched a little bit and located that hundreds of internet sites took our material without permission. A number of those just copy as well as pasted our material. So we assumed we need to build E-A-T so Google sees that our material is the initial. Because we have several great links we assumed it might be something on-page. I observed that a number of the brand-new top websites have schema.org increase witch mention the authors and the date of the released job. Because our brand name is stated all over the internet, I question if it assists to add on-page writer signals/tags to our website as well as if it should be a person (stated rather no place yet) or a company (in our case the website’s LINK)?

      Hi Marquerite,

      There are many factors that could have contributed to the loss of your visitors at the beginning of the month.
      I’d suggest checking your analytics to see if the traffic drop-off occurred around the same time as Google’s latest algorithm update.

      Aside from that, you are on the right track in terms of boosting your EAT. Adding author bios can help, as well as indicating how fresh the content is (via publish or edit date). This post on SEO tips may be just what you’re looking for! Best of luck!
