    Hello BHW,

    This is probs going to be my most productive post Ive ever made here at BHW, And its about how I solved my problem I had when I got hit by the most recent panda update. This worked for me, it may not work for you but I think it will


    First off, You need to make sure you got penalized by panda, and not a -50 or any other kind of penalty, I know It was panda becuase alot of people got affected on the 16th November and around that date and google also announced it via Twitter,

    So, now you know you have a panda penalty, you need to get rid of it,

    You need to build a new website, make sure your websites is worth looking at this time and keeps the bounce rate low ( i think this is why I got hit) try adding relevant videos, having structered articles and pictures & a call to action.

    Then you need to 301 redirect the old panda-lized website to the new website, and do nothing but wait, now if it was a Panda Penalty it SHOULD come back!

    After I did this, I waited 2 days and Boom the main keywords were ranking in the same exact spots as the old website before the panda update.

    The old website was 2nd and 8th for VERY competitve keywords, and it got hit back to 800+ when panda got his pesky hands on it. but when it was re-directed straight back to 2nd & 8th. - Ive now learnt my lesson and im building better websites from now on!

    I hope this thread will also help you if you got affected, If you found this useful, please give reP!:D

    yes this is how you beat panda penalty (w/o linking issues) - if your usage metrics are good then you will survive even past the next update

    so you leave the redirect on indefinitely and the new site takes over the old spots?

    Thanks

    it ain't nothing to do with bounce rates. I've got a $1K a day site with an average bounce rate over 50% and the page with the 2nd most traffic is over 70%.

    maybe it's all the adsense and crappy affiliate ads?

    How long have your rankings been great again on the new domain? I have heard of many people doing this, only to have the domain slapped back down again 1 week later.

    Maybe it depends on what kind of penalty it has? Also, did you update as many backlinks as you could to the new domain, or just leave all backlinks pointing at the old domain?
