    Damn, what's going on with the serps?!

    Since the past few weeks I'm on 20% of my usual revenue. Websites have unique, quality content, better content than the competition, been ranking page 1 for very tough niches, now they're in Mordor.

    It is obviously being implemented tweaked, retweaked and just f0cked up all over the place and in random stages.

    I would suggest you NOW build a lot of high PR, authority backlinks to the most important pages of your site.

    You aren't the first person to say that. Makes me think... That the current back linking services are actually working. Gotta find out what everyone is using so we can jump on the persons band wagon.

    Actually, my finding points the other way, seems like all profile links and blog comments have been devalued.

    Either that, or Google is just in a grinder right now.

    My way from now is to get social and other type of traffic, SEO traffic will be a extra bonus. Like i said '' I don't want to dance with google anymore''

    Things have changed since Panda. You all have been focused on the links to your site but with Panda you need to focus on the following to beat it

    1. Unique content that is not spun
    2. Steady inflow of links
    3. Avoid ad heavy pages. This is big. If you have ads all over your page even if you are doing everything correct you can get up to 60% drop in traffic. I have not verified if this happens if you use only Google ads yet. I am checking this currently.
    4. Make sure that you do not have lots of way of sorting the same content on your site. For example shopping carts will show the product you are selling and then some people show a ton of related products. These related products overpower the content of the main product and Google thinks its duplicate content. A lot of shopping carts were hurt by Panda for this reason.
    5. Variety- Dont over SEO and make every page an exact SEO formula. Google want to see your content as being random which is more realistic.

    I hope this helps :)

    I strongly second every word written here. Incredibly easy to understand, short, efficient explanation of what is going on and what should be done.

    ONE ADDITION

    SUCCESS = IRREGULARITY

    Well, there's nothing new then... We all know we have to look random to google's eyes, maybe some people were just not doing it.

    While your suggestions surely are correct, it's not beneficial because many of us have been doing that since the beginning and our websites still got kicked into oblivion. For example, my websites are very informational and contain quality hand written content from scratch, no bullshit spin. Link velocity is steady. Ads are at minimum. Onpage SEO at least at 85%. Users love the website, google not (did before).

    Currently nothing makes sense to me, but we shall figure it out. If we share some experiences between us we can make that process quicker for all of us, hence why I made this thread.

    I don't see any major changes. If anything, traffic increases every day since their update. I have 1 client whose websites dropped and those were the sites I told them had shitty layout & plenty of other bugs a long time ago. They didn't want to pay me to do the development of their site & went with a chepo, now they suffer the consequences, BIG TIME suffering. Oh, well.

    The changes that I have seen mostly are on my autoblogs almost 90% of them loss their organic traffic.

    The thing that you really need to do to avoid G slap and any other update is to just build what I called "BASE LINKS" - meaning 100% quality and unique articles sprinkled on trusted sites like squidoo, EZA, ezinemark and other sites.

    Let uncle G indexed it. wait 1-2 weeks then start building backlinks to those QUALITY links. You can use any other type of link building methods.

    The ratio would be (for example 3 links in a blog post) 1 link would be on the quality link (assuming an EZA article) 1 link for the homepage and 1 link for subpage/post/articles.

    Do it for 1-2 weeks. and after that continue as usual..;)
