Nowadays, there are a lots of topics and concerns over Google Panda but I have felt that most of the people or bloggers are unaware about Google Panda and that’s why, today I will be sharing a few things about Google Panda including – ‘What is Google Panda ?’ and ‘How to Recover from its Effect’, and a few more things you should certainly know about it.
What is Google Panda?
Firstly, if you are a blogger, then it’s really important for you to know about Google Panda.
Google Panda is a change to Google’s Search Engine Ranking Algorithm introduced by Google in February 2011 and the main intention of Google in introducing it was a sole aim to lower the rank of ‘low-quality sites’ and bring quality sites higher near to Search Engine results. It was made with a purpose to lower down the ranks of low quality sites with poor content and copycats i.e. Content robbers and spammers.
It’s effect – It has a very huge impact on several sites & blogs. Like, Google Panda takes up an update frequently, like in every 3-4 months. And in that particular time, it checks several websites on the criteria of several factors like Page Speed, Loading Time, bounce Rate and most important is content of that site. These all factors were kept in mind in order to rank the sites on Google accordingly and these factors only decided that your site would have good effect on Organic traffic, your traffic remains constant or your traffic has decreased. And after that if your site is alright, then you could see an increase on your traffic or even it may remain constant. But if your site has Poor quality content, your blog is difficult to navigate, and lacks in other factors too, then you will see a decrease in traffic.
How to Recover from Google Panda?
Now what I have experienced is a majority of blogs are been hit from Panda in a negative way and their Search Engine Rankings have gone really down.
I believe that Google won’t punish you for no reason. Yes, there might be some reasons for the same and issues too with your blog and you need to fix them. So, I would be sharing some tips so that you can recover from panda and send the Panda back to the Jungle.
Write Original & Quality Articles
If you just copy content and paste it on your blog or website, then it would badly affect your blog or website. Also, you need to make sure that the articles you publish on your bog are of high quality i.e. not even copied and of 400 words minimum. So, word count should be 400 words and duplicate content is to always avoid.
Use Keywords Moderately
Now, I strongly recommend you to use keywords with low competition and use them moderately. Like, too many keywords in your content also let your rankings fall as Google would consider a spammer to you. So, you should use keywords in your posts efficiently and properly and use target those keywords only which have low competition and this would help you increase your organic traffic.
Check Your Spellings
Now by reading this point, you might be thinking that this not important or I’m just joking. But actually I’m serious about it as when Google is grading your content, then they are checking it from bottom to end and spelling mistakes can lower down your content grades and certainly your rankings would fall.
Grab High PR Backlinks
Getting High PR backlinks would also increase your authority and certainly increase your reputation in the eyes of Search Engines. But when you do link building, it should be done within an organized way and not in bulk as it would ban you in the search engines.
I’m pretty sure that this article will give you some knowledgeable things and I hope you & your blog are now ready to fight against Panda & kick it off to send it back to the jungle !
