• Google Delivers Lump of Coal to Babeland

    Babeland's Christmas stockingWill Google decide what you'll be getting for Christmas this year? Luz from US sex toy store Toys in Babeland shared a sad tale of woe with us...

    "In mid-November, just as we were gearing up for a busy holiday season, our natural (also known as 'organic' or 'non-paid') search rankings vanished from Google's search results, resulting in an instantaneous 30% drop in sales.

      We had the same issue at Good Vibrations. All of our organic listings disappeared and we ended up having to spend a fortune buying "good vibrations and "good vibes" on Google. It was completely frustrating! We can only hope that our loyal followers can remember our url and can find it all on their own :)
