SEOs Discuss Strategies To Escape Google Panda

Jul 15, 2011 • 8:57 am | comments (17) by twitter Google+ | Filed Under Google Search Engine Optimization

Google Panda Man RescueWe have written a ton of advice on helping sites with Panda problems in the past, so do check out our panda archives.

That being said, there is a WebmasterWorldthread has some SEOs and webmasters trying to share tips they've used to recover from Panda. Personally, I cannot vouch for these sites or tips and I am very skeptical if (1) these tips all work and/or (2) these sites were impacted by Panda.

Here are the tips, clipped from the thread:

  • Increase spider crawl rates
  • Add links to deeper pages
  • Removed low content pages
  • Blocked spiders from low-value pages
  • Cleaned up webmaster tools errors
  • Improved basic on page SEO details
  • Restructured site architecture
  • Reduced adding new content
  • Did nothing at all and recovered
  • many more tips in the thread

Most of the advice in the thread are good tips anyway, so I doubt they can hurt your site. Hope this helps some of you.

See our panda archives.

Even without concern over repairing damage done by Panda, these are good tips to follow. I tell my clients all the time, if you follow a strict white hat approach to SEO, you don't have to fear any algorithm updates. Google wants your site to be well optimized because it cleans up their search results for them.

How is "Reduced adding new content" good advice unless the content is crap?  Plenty of strictly white hat sites were affected by Panda so it is a real concern.  Personally I believe, anyone claiming to have recovered has just driven more traffic...not actually recovered.

The only tip that matters: ADVERTISE ON GOOGLE.  Become  a 'brand' and get a free pass from Google.

It just so happened that you cannot become an online brand unless you contribute to Google's earnings.

I have also noticed that too much interlinking between a self owned network of sites may be a trigger.  By not keeping sites separate (if they share similar content) seems to be a tip off that something is fishy.   My post here describes what I found:

Added ALT Text to all Images, submitted sitemap every single day and optimized the Page speed. This is what I did to recover and worked out very fine.

You are wrong on this one. I already advertise on Google. They have been clear that Google ads have no bearing on Panda updates. I receive less than half of my previous traffic. I am working on my own brand, however.
