The Google Penguin Update launched on April 24 and on the 27th I posted about it. See- New Google Search Algorithm Targets “Over Optimization”  

Here’s an update: 

Yesterday, May 9th, I ran new Search Engine Ranking Reports for my coaching clients. As you can see…

My Internet Marketing Coaching clients are THRIVING!!!

Here are some things you need to be aware of:

Google’s blog says, Penguin is an “important algorithm change targeted at webspam. The change will decrease rankings for sites that we believe are violating Google’s existing quality guidelines.”

Google mentions that typical black hat SEO tactics like keyword stuffing (long considered webspam) would get a site in trouble, but less obvious tactics (link incorporating irrelevant outgoing links into a page of content) would also cause Penguin to flag your site.

Be sure to check your Google Webmaster account for any messages from Google warning about your past spam activity and a potential penalty. Google says that Penguin has impacted about 3.1% of queries (compared to Panda 1.0’s 12%). If you saw major traffic losses between April 24th and April 25th, chances are Penguin is the culprit, even though Panda 3.5 came out around the same time.

Google has not revealed exactly what it is that is causing sites to drop in the rankings but me and others in the SEO community suspect things like:

1. Aggressive exact-match anchor text

2. Overuse of exact-match domains

3. Low-quality article marketing & blog spam

4. Keyword stuffing in internal/outbound links

REMEMBER Penguin is an algorithm update, not a manual penalty. A reconsideration request to Google won’t make much a difference–you’ll have to repair your site and wait for a refresh before your site will recover.

Panda, Google’s latest algorithm update caused many websites to drop in Google’s rankings. The primary focus of Panda was to reduce the rankings of websites that have low-quality content.

Friday Google published some questions that will help you to judge the quality of your site:

  • Would you trust the information presented in this article?s this article written by an expert or enthusiast who knows the topic well, or is it more shallow in nature?
  • Is this article written by an expert or enthusiast who knows the topic well, or is it more shallow in nature?
  • Does the site have duplicate, overlapping, or redundant articles on the same or similar topics with slightly different keyword variations?
  • Would you be comfortable giving your credit card information to this site?
  • Does this article have spelling, stylistic, or factual errors?
  • Are the topics driven by genuine interests of readers of the site, or does the site generate content by attempting to guess what might rank well in search engines?
  • Does the article provide original content or information, original reporting, original research, or original analysis?
  • Does the page provide substantial value when compared to other pages in search results?
  • How much quality control is done on content?
  • Does the article describe both sides of a story?
  • Is the site a recognized authority on its topic?
  • Is the content mass-produced by or outsourced to a large number of creators, or spread across a large network of sites, so that individual pages or sites don’t get as much attention or care?
  • Was the article edited well, or does it appear sloppy or hastily produced?
  • For a health related query, would you trust information from this site?
  • Would you recognize this site as an authoritative source when mentioned by name?
  • Does this article provide a complete or comprehensive description of the topic?
  • Does this article contain insightful analysis or interesting information that is beyond obvious?
  • Is this the sort of page you’d want to bookmark, share with a friend, or recommend?
  • Does this article have an excessive amount of ads that distract from or interfere with the main content?
  • Would you expect to see this article in a printed magazine, encyclopedia or book?
  • Are the articles short, unsubstantial, or otherwise lacking in helpful specifics?
  • Are the pages produced with great care and attention to detail vs. less attention to detail?
  • Would users complain when they see pages from this site?

What Google is asking is simply this-

  1. Can your web page content be trusted?
  2. Is the content of your web pages unique?
  3. Do you check the quality of your web pages?
  4. Do you create web pages for your visitors or for search engines?
  5. Do your web pages contain enough real content?

Remember, even if your web pages contain real content, can be trusted, are unique, are high quality and are really well written for human website visitors, you still have to make sure that Google finds your web pages relevant to the right keywords, that is SEO post Panda (and it is how we have approached SEO since 1996.)

It is being reported that some of the sites that lost rankings after Google’s Panda update are now regaining some of their lost rankings. Our clients did not lose any rankings due to Panda so I can’t confirm this first hand. If your site lost rankings due to Panda I would love to hear from you.

IMPORTANT NOTE- The Panda Update was primarily about “Quality Content” and Google has stated that low quality content on a site can reduce the entire site’s rankings, not just the page that has the low quality content.
