Google Panda Recovery

Google panda recovery possibly? I don’t know yet, but I’m sure I’ve found enough of a trend to solve the issue. I’m certainly not going to go shouting about a Google Panda fix publicly, I am loyal to someone and am eternally grateful and would therefore never disclose that information in the public domain.

However, if the Google Panda update has hit your site then there maybe light at the end of the tunnel. I think I’m one of the first people to figure it out, it’s been a long few weeks but I’m pretty sure other smart search people will come to the same conclusion imminently.

What I will state is whether you’re vulerable, if you fit the profile or not, do leave a comment and tell me if I’m wrong or not.

You’re particularly vulnerable if:

1.  You’re an established website with a reasonable about of search engine visibility.

2.  You have a small site that you started years ago, you wrote some very good quality unique content (eg: technical guides) and let it attract links naturally as it was very good content.

3.  You have a huge website, I’m talking tens of thousands of pages or (even millions) here and you’ve been ticking along quite nicely until now, you’ve done some link-building to get good rankings.

4. You’re an affiliate and the stuff you sell or promote can’t really be said in any other way as there are millions of variations and people need to key in the exact phrase to find what they are looking for.

5. You own a very large forum, it probably still even has tens of thousands or millions of visitors a month.

You read it here first. Please comment and tell me if you fit into one of the five categories strongly.

  1. We fit into 5. We were hit hard by Panda. Dropped from 350K pageviews a day down to 75K pageviews a day. We’re screwed.

    well we fit into 3! if you have any advice to share privately i would be most grateful we are slowing sorting the site but because of the size its going to take a while for google to recrawl and take notice of our noindex tags!

  3. Ayup. I fall under #2. Panda 1 had minor effect; Panda 2 has brought me to my knees.

    Sounds like the site I have. You mentioned 5 profiles that sound very much like every white hat site out there. Seems like everyone is vulnerable? I’m curious about who would NOT be vulnerable?
