Hi,
recently my website's been receiving less organic visits and I think is mainly because of the top-heavy ads penalty update from google. 
 
For example, my website url is divided in several domains like:
 
www.website.com
website.com
fr.website.com
us.website.com
ar.website.com
 
I made changes to the above the fold ads on us.website.com, but i'm not sure if it's going work, because i don't know if the algorithm affects my website as a whole or independently by domains. If it's the first case, it would render the recent change useless and we would have to update to all our website parts.
 
Can you help me with this please?

Take the ads off, see if it recovers.

Thank you, chrishirst,

already done it with us.website.com three days ago and I don't think it's recovering, does it mean that i'll have to do this to every country domain of my website?

It will take a lot longer than three days to see any changes.

Ok, so how much time you recommend I should wait to see if I have to take a more drastic action?

Why would the page layout algo suddenly affect your site? It's been in existence for years.

Just another case of SEO Moz getting it wrong.

 

 

 

 

No surprises there then!
