Can PageRank drop significantly after server error?

by @kubazabran (112), 3 years ago

Hi guys, about two weeks ago we had a server down for two or three days (lot of 500 errors). Since then the organic rate has dropped significantly based on GA (55%) and still not increasing. Is it possible it was caused by the server being down? Is there a way how we can increaste the traffic?

Can PageRank drop significantly after server error? Yes, it's the perfect recipe for a 100% bounce rate.

A signal for Google your content isn't what people are looking for. So your rankings will drop.

Recovery takes serious time. Change the publication date of some articles to today. Giving 1 or 2 articles a lift in this way every day can contribute to a faster recovery.
