I keep seeing questions about the Panda update and I've spent most of the day looking for the best way to build links after the update. Anyway, Here's how it went. 1. Most of the sites that took a huge hit had been blocked by users in their Chrome browser. 84% to be exact, and those sites just did not fit into the user experience. (G is built for it's users and does not owe any of us anything, it's tough to swallow, grow a pair) 2. Ads. That's right ads. The department that runs adsense and the spam department do not work together. While the adsense department will tell you the more ads the better, Matt that works G's spam department will tell you that having to many ads on your site just does not fit into the user experience. So watch the amount of ads you throw on your site, and I've also heard some things about rel=no****** ing your banner ads could be a no-no too, but no official word on that. 3. CONTENT. Content is huge now. Stop being a lazy fuck be creative and write original content that benefits people. Stop Copying PLR's, Article marking garbage, and spinning bullshit content. It takes time to make original content. (If I was going to build a wall to keep out zombies I would not cut corners, so if your life (money) depends on not cutting corners (writing original content) why would you cut corners?) Writing original content that users want to read and engages them will allow you to with stand the long haul. But I can't come up with good content on my own. Then pick something else to do, bottom line. Can't come up with content all the time? Guest posting could be a good option to help you out. Open a couple spots to allow someone to guest post. 4. Social media. Be more active in social media. That about sums the update up. so stop bitching about this and that, and actually do something that makes the net a better place. I also wanted to comment on the post about the panda loophole. Yes, there is a loophole, it's an algorithm. But with G+ rolling out They may rely less on that algorithm. About the loophole, I read an article that interviewed G engineers and in the article they admitted a loophole.
