As previously reported, Mahalo is reducing its staff by 10% as a result of the loss of revenue and traffic from Google’s most recent algorithm update. We reached out to Calacanis for comment on the situation. 

He told us, "All we can do is put our heads down and continue to make better and better content. If we do our job I’m certain the algorithm will treat us fairly in the long-term."

"The 90+ members of our team are rallying around this challenge, and you will continue to see amazing content from experts with real credentials at Mahalo.com," he added.

Mahalo is re-evaluating its freelance content production strategy, and is even pausing it for the time being. The company’s video unit is still going strong, however, which Mahalo says is encouraging it to ramp up video production. 

Google has been talking about refining the update, to let some of the higher quality content that got hit work its way back up in the rankings. We’ll see if Mahalo recovers.

    Calacanis/mahalo should have been prepared… the writing has been on the wall for months now.

    IMHO Google should have pushed that algo change out well over a year ago.

    To be honest i highly doubt if anyone would miss mahalo if it was completely removed from serps.

    This is worrisome and sad. “All we can do is put our heads down and continue to make better and better content. If we do our job I’m certain the algorithm will treat us fairly in the long-term.”

    That’s sheep mentality right there. It won’t get better; it will get worse! They should use their power to call for the government to regulate search engines, not just submit. That is ridiculous! Do they care about those employees that lost their jobs? That giant needs to be regulated and broke into smaller companies. Too much power.
