The site has reportedly leveled from over 1.4 million visitors to 230,000 visitors, since Google penalized the lyrics website for its SEO tactics. Rap Genius has confessed to their mistake and even pointed out other lyric sites that they say have http://sheenaarellano.soup.io/?sessid=55c6c7f34ece6b5eb6183bf14206d8fd similar and more violations than themselves. After being wiped from Google search results in top positions, Rap Genius and its investors have been hit with a pretty scary situation so the site isnt commenting any further. We effed up, is what the site initially said. Searching even for the phrase Rap Genius itself will not even bring the website up on the first few pages of Google search results.
