Google panda which ‘scores’ websites on their content and user-experience. Google came up with its panda update a few months back and several website owners and bloggers saw major changes in search engine rankings for their keywords. The panda update aimed at removing highly placed low quality sites from search engines and replacing them with sites with high quality content. Social media plays a much larger role in SEO. Unique and original content is no longer limited to keywords in the title tag and in the body. Google is now looking at how shareable and interesting your content is
Structure content so visitors can easily find what they want.
Update & distribute content regularly. Engage with people and participate in social networks.
Do not overload on ads. One of the best SEO tips you can get in the new Google Panda system is to lessen your ads. These income-generation opportunities can be too much of a hindrance. Google wants to see that you’re generating authoritative content. Its new algorithm puts a low score on content scrapers who prioritize the ads more. This lets the search engine cross out sites that live just for the ad revenues.
Engagement metrics are the time a visitor spends on a page, the bounce rate and page view per visit. Panda also focus’s on user data metrics for ranking. Metrics such as:
What is your bounce rate
How long do visitors spend on each page they visit?
Do vistors browse to other pages on your website?
Where are visitors coming from to your website?
The Google algorithm now focus more on the visitor experience on a web page to determine its ranking, rather than the traditional On Page factors and Off Page Factors.
Outbound links are the links to other Websites from your Websites If your Website has relevant outbound links then the chances of good search engine ranking.
Google now uses social signals from Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, bookmarking sites and more to influence rankings. Google Panda realizes that if they want to be #1, they need to become a social site. That’s why Google introduced Google plus, they are now even indexing Facebook comments and showing them in search results. Social activity on your website has now a powerful voting power on ranking your website. Consider putting some follow us on twitter, like us on face and other social networking services More likes & +1 means more people are recommending the site so it gain in search results page.
The number of backlinks to a website is a prime indication of it’s popularity and importance. Search engines often use the number of backlinks that a website has as one of the most important factors for determining that website's search engine ranking
The design structure of the sites now also one of the major ranking factor. The website should be well structured so that a user can easily navigate through the website to get the required information. All the information should be easily accessible. Building a good URL structure that’s easy to follow for both users and search engines content displayed in a very readable format
Do not use frames
Do not have an entirely FLASH homepage
Do not use image maps as the only method of navigation
Don’t use too many ads
Make site with clear Hierarchy and text links Search engine results are no longer based simply on keywords and how often you use them – site design is finally playing a role.
Google will be removing bad content and allowing good content to rank higher. It is important that the content on every page of your website is of high quality. Any poor quality content may need to be re-written to ensure it is well-written, useful and relevant for your visitors. The content should be unique, relevant and informative. Google wants you to always add new content. When you do this, Google knows that your site is “active.”
Evaluate all the content on your web pages, and if possible, improve the overall quality of your page on your domain
Remove low-quality pages that are with thin content from your domain
Make use of robots.text to block Google’s Bot from scrolling your pages that might appear as duplicate content
Avoid too much of advertising on any particular page
Focus on your site speed in search engines, because this is also an important factor for higher ranking according to Panda
Make the effort to contribute value to the web through your website, in the form of frequently published resources, information, guides, images, videos, or whatever.
Try ensuring that you include some meaningful textual content (related to the images) along with your photo/video galleries.
Try using the social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter to direct traffic to your business site and build up your brand presence.
Avoid Web Pages with Flash because the flash content is not easily read by the Google Bots and this cannot decide the quality of the page.
