    Hi all, first of all, I am a newbie at BHW and thanks for all of you to bear my poor English. Now this post is telling what I have done and how I done after my site had been affected by Panda and Penguin.
    From 22nd, May 2013, my traffic dropped, a god damn dropped and my keywords had been far away from #1 or #2 page on Google. At that time, I don't know what's going on but still keep doing what I do as normal. And you will know the result-things get worst at 1st October 2013. After that, I just change a little, I stopped and thought a lot, then I decided to change the way of my keywords.
    For example, (just an example) I sale diet pills, and I used to set my keywords which can link to my site like diet pills, lose weight, diet pills lose weight. But I know that this way cannot be used anymore, so I change them like "how to use diet pills to lose weight", "can diet pills help me to lose my weight", "the best diet pills help in losing your weight".
    Now I can see a good result after Penguin 3.0, the long tail keywords rank #11, 12 even #7 on Google. But I still have questions.
    1. When I search "diet pills", I still cannot find my site on the front page, but when I search the long tail keywords like "can diet pills help me to lose my weight", I can see my site on #1 page. I know that some people still use "diet pills" to search on Google, but more people like to use "how to", "the best", etc keywords to search. So what should I do to be better?
    2. Though lots of long tail keywords rank good, but the traffic of my site only gets a little, just a little improvement. For example, my site gets 800 per day. After 2013, only get 70 or 80 per day. Now I can get 150 to 180 per day. Why can't I get the 800 back? Can this be done? If yes, how?
    I know that my English is not so good and you may be feel difficult to read the post I write, but I do really hope I can get help from here. Thank you very much.

    Check for low quality pages and remove them. Also, redesign your site with full check of onpage seo. Finally, check for bad backlinks and try to remove them or disavow them. And create more diverse backlinks with LSI keywords.

    As of now, you can concentrate more on long tail keywords. Because, by putting efforts on competitive keywords, you are again inviting a update hit.

    Thank you, I know that high quality backlinks are useful, but I am not dare to buy because last time some high quality backlinks made my site drop down. And, the most important question is that how to get the related site to post my link.

    Hi, thanks for your opinion. But as I replied to jelly91, how to find the related high quality site to post my link is a big problem and I have not enough site sources to post. Any further opinions?

    Start by removing the bad links, Penguin is worse than Panda and you should start by fixing the worst of the two.
