I don't have a shop so my website needs to get as much traffic as possible.
Back in 2012 my site was hit by Penguin & Panda and also suffered at the hands of an awful SEO company (it's a long story).
Since then the organic rankings have never really recovered despite a reliable 'white hat' SEO company trying to save it.
Before 2012 my site ranked well organically and sent me a lot of traffic. I was on page one for at least half of my search terms and close behind for the rest.
In 2012 when the site was moved from CSS to Wordpress my traffic halved immediately and has never recovered.
A couple of years ago I wrote to Google to ask them to disassociate me from any poor quality links that may have been set up by unscrupulous companies working on my behalf but even though they did that my rankings never recovered.
Are there any gurus on this site that might be able to shed any light on how to recover from Penguin/Panda/etc?
I've been told that it would be easier to start a whole new website on a completely new url but I can't afford that.
