    Hi,

    Just started this thread to list patterns that are still working after Oct 4 2013 (Panda 2.1), and also patterns that are hurting websites.

    What I noticed is that videos were not affected. I had a website as #1 and couple videos as #2 and #3. The website fall few pages, but the videos are still there. The SEO applied to all of them were the same. Pure backlinks from articles, comments and profiles.

    Cheers,
    Rob.

    SPAM, SPAM, SPAM! I am convinced that MASSIVE SPAM WORKS. One Of My Buddies Showed Me today that in a car niche he is into his link profile and rankings and with this current update, and his site has risen. He is building 20K + Links A day. Link profiles is every platform.

    Social Media and Guest Posts are still genuine methods IMHO...

    I was waiting for this...

    From what I have witnessed going around recently, googles update actually IMPROVED rankings for genuine, quality sites & dumped junk sites.
    Perhaps if we continue to see improvements like this, google might be helpful afterall. But time will tell.

    It's not Panda, it's Penguin 2.1. Many websites have been affected by this update but some retain their rankings.

    What was good before the last update is likely to still be good after it. I have, for example, 6 websites. All same niche. All same age (1yr+). All backlinks were made through the same services. You know how many of those 6 sites got hit? 2. The other 4 made improvements. ALL 6 WEBSITES were identical other than their domain name and themes. Same keywords, same meta descriptions, all trying to get on Page 1.

    I'm going to continue using the same methods I've been using, and going to continue ranking my sites. I suggest doing the same, but it's really just my opinion.

    Even i would agree to the point, the massive spam links are working.. All the sites that have been hit that i have noticed were the ones that are not strong at heavy profile backlinks.. Rest of the sites that are having massive amount of backlinks being made each day are still up high and doing a great job.

    The attached is a crap/junk affiliate website with links from crap sources. Went to position 1 for a very competitive term (think about weight loss). So your theory fails. ranks.jpg
