2012 Poll: Did Your Site Recover From The Google Panda Update?

Feb 7, 2012 • 9:09 am | comments (12) by twitter Google+ | Filed Under Google Search Engine Optimization

Google PandaIt is just under a year since Google pushed out the Panda update on February 24th. Since then, we ran a poll back in June asking if anyone recovered. 85% said they did not recover from the Panda update.

Since it is now just about a year later, I wanted to rerun the poll.

The poll is below, please take it and please tell all your friends, coworkers, colleagues and webmasters friends to take the poll. I'd love to release the results on February 24, 2012.

For more information on the Panda update see our Panda category and here is a list of those updates:

My site increased in rank when Panda rolled out. I went from 1 to 3. Yesterday, however, my site decreased 1 point and now ranks 2.  craig at dancesportevents.com

Write quality content and their shouldn't be any bad after taste from the Panda. For me, I'm still waiting for  big G to knock out all the crap sites that, for some un-godly reason, still outrank me - go figure?!

Most of my sites were not affected by the Panda update as I try to use good content on and off page SEO, but what I am worried about down the road is the use of automated softwares that post links to your money sites and other Web 2.0. I have heard rumors that it is coming but I think it would be really hard to implement and then people that have Senuke and others would attack their competition. I would love to hear thoughts on that topic..

Yes content was always  important for any website, but in these days panda is very strict about content spamming . So, we should use unique content to increase rankings.

Google panda and Google penguin is giving an impact that most of the websites complained. There are things that we should consider upon this. We should implement some new plans and use strategic techniques to get back those rankings that we lost.
