Latest Panda Update

    As we all know, there's a recent update in Google that affected a lot of sites. I just wanna hear some of your feedbacks if your site happened to be greatly affected by the most recent Panda (or is it called another term this time).

    lost around 80% of my revenue but whatever..google results are now starting to suck as they have removed most of the good content from their listing ..Bing and yahoo are really offering great traffic and results..

    My site was hit a little. My main money page held on and is at the top for a some moderate kw term in an extremely competitive industry. Some of my other pages were hit. What sucks is I was rising up ranks with these pages and the search terms I optimizing for were some of the top in the industry. Now I have dropped by about 1 page and up to a few pages on these.

    The update hit many sites across the board and I think Google realizes now that not all the sites should have been hit and they are correcting this. The reason for the update is because Google wants users to have a great experience when they use their search engine. If you have ever been trying to look something up on Google and find the exact same copy on three or four websites, you know how frustrating and time consuming this can be.

    If you want to please Google, be sure you have good content that is original on your site and make your site is easy to navigate for the visitor. This is not to say you can't ever use PLR occasionally, but you need to use the PLR as research and change the article quite a bit to make it pass as original.

    If you build a site with the interest of your reader in your mind, and not just how much money you are going to make, you will find that you will probably never have any trouble with Google, and you will make even more money.

    Sorry to hear that. I have a friend who had a health site but it was felt to be a pharmacy site by Google and so she had a problem. If your site is in this area, it may be the reason, but don't know for sure. But many people have said that their sites are starting to improve. They just continued to add content and do the backlinking and within a few months things were getting back to normal. I hope this is the case for you as well.

    Not much significant change in my rankings, actually a little bit higher than normal. Whenever a new update comes people always talk about getting hit, but at the same time there are an equal amount of sites seeing boosted rankings.

    You're almost never going to get hit by a Panda update as long as you aren't trying to fuck with the results with keyword stuffing and such, most people don't seem to understand this.
