Google Panda Update

Yup, I think they are inspired by Kung-Fu Panda who knocked down the enemies brutally. After a couple of years of the movie release, Google too started thinking about the black hat practice in SEO and Internet marketing that was no less than enemies.

Every day, hundreds of millions of people search on Google with the purpose to get genuine information, product or services but malpractice in SEO (before 2011) did harm that purpose. This is because they returned the search queries with certain sites those were not liked by the users as they discovered those sites dull, uninformative and flat.

This issue had come to the fore and a big move was mandatory for the Giant to keep its reputation. The move that would punish and penalize mal-practitioners by all accounts was finally out, they named it Panda Update.

As said on Google Official Blog, “Our goal is simple; to give people the most relevant answers to their queries as quickly as possible”. It is for this reason, the frequent change in algorithm has happened in Google.

Over the period of time, the webmasters become wiser to fool the search engine bots and responding this practice, every latest version of algorithm comes with tougher guidelines and stricter rules and regulations. Google Panda did exactly that and thousands of websites lost their ranking, in a jiffy!

Panda Update was to encourage Healthy Web Ecosystem

Google could not do major improvement without shuffling the results on the page. After panda, major ups and downs were noticed and low quality content websites went drastically down whereas genuine and innocent websites (even with less keyword) came up. Nevertheless, this update was highly being criticized initially which forced the Giant to come up with superior code named Penguin that fixed most of the problems that occurred due to undesired Google Panda effects.

The purpose of these updates was (and will remain) is encouraging the healthy web ecosystem where users find genuine stuff for their queries. The search engineers at Google work very hard on developing the algorithm so that whether the search query is informational, transactional or navigational, the most relevant and authentic sites should come up. 

Affected Popular Websites after Google Panda Update

Panda penalized many sites with so called shallow content though it was not exactly the way search engineers thought. In one of the interviews, Mr. Amit Singhal, a top Search Engineer at Google Inc. said, “Recognizing shallow content site is very, very hard problem. We have not solved it and it is ongoing evaluation how to solve that problem”.  The Giant, for this reason, uses other scientific techniques and audience polls to be more precise in their SERP rankings.

To come out of Panda penalty, for many webmasters, is something like asking for the Moon; but that’s not right! There are few important tips that can help you doing better Search Engine Optimization for Google Panda and Penguin Updates

Tips for SEO after Panda Update

Here with come with no-nonsense tips for Search Engine Optimization especially after the latest algorithm update by Google.

Low Quality and small spam content

The first and foremost thing one should do is removing or amending the low quality and small spam content from the webpage. Auto-generated text is strictly penalized by Google Panda due to its robust algorithm. Spinning software doesn’t work anymore. You must prefer a little quality content over junk in bulk.

Try to get off the doorway pages, duplicate content and titles, similar content (though rephrased) just with slightly different keywords etc. Your content should be specific, peculiar and up to the mark satisfying the readers’ hunger.

It’s not just all about article or text

Google Panda takes many things into consideration. Apart from genuine and quality text or description, image placement and graphics also matter. A webpage that has quality description or article/text, appealing graphics and minimum redirections will be given priority.

Simplicity over complexity

Think about a page that has 100s of links redirecting you anywhere in the world or within the domain! The readers get confused and they just leave the page. Simplicity over complexity wins the battle and come up in SERPs. A simple page, easy to navigate and quick to access is what any user would want. Since Panda typically thinks like a human, creating simpler web page with clear description, innocent graphics is the preferred one.

Invite and place quality advertisers

It’s all about winning the trust of the visitor. There is no denial that everyone among us would like to be paid by the advertisements. You may prefer few sponsors at larger price over large number of sponsors offering low price. Related ads or links are very much preferred. In addition, you must mind keeping the graphics on your webpage. Visual experience, page loading time, and bounce or browse rates do matter in SEO for Panda.

With these good things in mind, you can do SEO for Panda that would bring desired results. Practice healthy and follow ethical SEO process (what we call a White Hat SEO) to make your website a great experience for the user and rest all Panda will do in your favor!
