I have never really to subscribed to any big brother theories as I suspect that they are part of everyday life and always will be, however I am not sure that giving google all your information will help your work.

I have a site that has been number 1 for the keywords for that are not very competitive so no real struggle, I create the site in 2004 and done nothing to it since, the friend I did the site for ask me to add some more content 3 weeks ago for another product that he is adding to his range, so I thought while I am at it I will add google analytics to the site to see what level of traffic he has been getting on a weekly basis, so I applied for the code etc and placed it on the existing site, at this stage I have not changed anything on the site other than to tell google that they now can montior the stats for me.

Today the site has fallen of a cliff for keywords.

Ok so the google changes all the time, but what it has replaced it with is a site with a domain that I own with the same text and content on it that I had tested it on over 4 years ago and simply forgot to take it down.

I am beginning to think that given google information can cause you a problem, I gave them a site map on another website and my site bomb again.

Hmm perhaps just paranoid.

Paranoid may be the key word. Take down the other site and see what happens. But adding analytics wouldn't hurt a site.
