This article will teach you few techniques through which you can recover from Google Panda update. Since Google Panda has hit the web, many bloggers and SEO have failed to completely recover from it. Google’s algorithm has been updated many times during this Panda Update. Approximately three updates have been released since its first update (including first one).
Few have experienced entirely different results during these three updates. Their traffic has first dropped then on next update it increased. While some have had very bad experience, their traffic dropped on both the updates. So the question is from where to start recovering?
First step is to analyze your site’s traffic and know where major changes have occurred. You also need to confirm that the traffic is reduced from Google organic not from referrals and other sources. Now you have to find which pages have got penalty. Since there are many pages in your website/blog and different pages are getting traffic from different sources. You have to keenly observe and find out exactly which pages have been penalized by Google Panda. This can take time but you have to fight your way through.
In most of the cases the pages that got penalty are stuffed with ads (above the cover). These pages have duplicate content or they are slightly different from the original content, mean to say not exact duplication but very little. This includes spinning. One short tip that can be handy is that you can request a not-so-skilled person in surfing the Internet to read a blog post of yours. Ask him, “Does he/she find it too much stuffed with ads or not?” This will help you better understand the readability of your blog.

Once you have found the pages that were penalized by Google block them for Google to further crawl these pages. This will help you remove any effect of those pages to the rest of your site. Do penalized web pages affect site’s ranking? Don’t know, but don’t take risks. Since these web pages are not participating in generating much traffic, blocking them won’t affect the traffic as much.
Now calculate how many pages are there that have a room to be improved. Since blogs have posts and posts can be rewritten so you can take a chance to rewrite the blog post in a better way with more words and less keyword density. Bloggers can also fix the penalized posts by increasing the quality of the content. Content is the king. Try to put a research before writing a post and write something that really helps visitors. Try to involve readers into your articles. This will help you increase time spent by the visitors on your web pages which is good for SEO. If they are static pages then search for best practices of improving static pages ranking. After doing so if you end up with posts and pages that can’t be improved, delete them. No traffic, no money. Only a burden on the site.
Reduce the number of ads on the pages and see if it works or not. Remember that Google Adsense is also included in advertisements. After this chances of increasing page ranking will be brighter. I hope this will help you restore your ranking and improve your site’s revenue. Your site’s ranking will change slowly after you start improving it. Don’t expect sudden changes. It will take some time. Keep reading articles of other webmasters and bloggers and keep making improvements. You will see that gradually your site’s ranking is increasing. If not, try another strategy. SEO is all about trial and error.
