Demography of visitors
A very interesting program.
In what programming language is this program written?
What operating systems does this program work on?
Is there a description of this program?
I worked in the company “Vitamin Center” in 2012 - 2020.
I was an assistant to the site administrator.
The site administrator worked as a university professor and was very busy.
My responsibilities included the analysis of the site, analysis of competition, website promotion on social networks, maintaining a customer base and much more.
This site about health was very similar in many parameters to the QS website and the problems were similar.
According to the results of the analysis of the QS website, I assume that life cycle of this site is slowly moves to the end and the changes are needed.
The condition of this site is alarming.

One of the many reasons for the fall in the traffic was Google policy and a change in search algorithms.
The rapid increase in the number of competitors also influenced significantly.
What we managed to do technically the main one for modernizing the site until 2020.
Analysis of the site pages for attendance and removal of low -value pages.
I analyzed all the pages of the site for attendance and the availability of external links.
I analyzed the transitions inside the site.
We agreed and deleted low -value and inactive pages.
Of the approximately 2000 pages of the site, only 300 useful pages are left, then the number of pages increased to 700-800.
Search for plagiarism and increasing the uniqueness of the site pages.
Checking the uniqueness of the texts of the site pages, first I did it manually with free programs,
Then there was a complete massive verification of uniqueness with a paid service.
Over the years, the unique texts of the site have been stolen completely or in pieces.
The uniqueness of the texts of many pages of the site fell to zero.
On the server of Iran, I found a complete copy of our site.
We turned to the administration of search engines with complaints. The result is not known to us.
Important pages of the site were processed to increase uniqueness.
Information on the priority of publications has been sent to the search engines.
Modernization of the site catalog.
The site search for visitors to increase the depth of viewing the site was facilitated.
The full .html made a map of the site, but was not installed on the site.
Increased adaptability on mobile devices.
Pages are tested for convenience on different devices and adapted.
With small resolutions of smartphones, the text of the site is still not convenient to read,
and most of the visitors come from devices with small screen resolution.
The order buttons were slightly increased.
An increase in the frequency of new publications on the site.
Increased the number of new unique publications on the site up to 2 large articles per month, but not for a long time. The copywriter left.
The site had a WordPress blog and forum. They were removed.
The forum was poorly protected from spam.
We could not completely modernize the site due to the sudden death of the director in 2020.
The grid of blogs and pages of social networks has become memorial. Page of the director memory http://vitaminas.ru/memory.html
However, the site remained profitable and has existed 23 years. We were only able to delay his further fall.

Site and blog life cycle
The result of the search for “dark traffic” on the site.
I did not plan to linger on your site for a long time.
I only planned to share my knowledge so that they would not disappear in vain, but the demand for them is very small.
The sudden death of my mother has changed a lot in my life.
While I’m trying to get distracted, calm down and put my thoughts in order.
The problem with large catalogs.
The publication of thousands of outgoing links in catalogs leads to falling under the filter of search engines.
This causes a complete loss of search traffic.
My site fell under the filter and lost search traffic for several years.
I was not careful. The exit from the filter is a very long process.
All external links should be hidden from search robots.
Free advertising of other people’s sites does not contribute to the popularity of the site, if it is not a mutual exchange of links.
We tried this ourselves sometime around 2012, with community editing enabled, and almost immediately lost the war with stale (if not spam) entries dominating the database.
The project @Algorithm linked earlier, overseen by Open Humans Foundation (where I serve on the board) is yet another attempt. This time there are some skilled people involved with experience in community/peer resource development, so perhaps this gives it a better chance!
I had a registration record on the site curetogether_com.
Now I can’t enter this site.
This site was really very similar to the site QS.
This site advertised @Alexandra_Carmichael .

Alexandra Carmichael is the Co-Founder at CureTogether,
She was a community administrator Facebook QS.
This site is probably absorbed recently 23andme_com.
These and many other sites overlap the semantic core of the site QS.
These sites block keywords and phrases from the search and pull search traffic to themselves.
