The last year has been a time of change. Google has been increasingly ensuring the search landscape has become black and white. Enter Panda update and Penguin update. If you haven't heard about these changes you have been living under a stone.

As a marketer fighting to get your site up against the increasing competition, Google throws its spanner into the wheels to get all your efforts into a tailspin.

Have you been hit by either of these updates? Do you see a sharp decline in web traffic from 19th April or the 24th April 2012?

Key take aways:

• How to survive the Panda attack?
• Steps to recovery
• Quick check of your website.
• Rehash your SEO Program

If your website has not been hit by either of the updates - could also indicate a badly optimized website.

  • Spring always feels like a fresh start, especially with Spring cleaning and cutting out the necessary clutter. Hopefully these tips will give you the motivation to clean things up and try something new!
  • You may just about end up with your website looking like this. Beware Google Panda is not just restricted to content farms – if you have a website that’s optimized like this you will be in for a shocker.
  • Guest Bloggers,
  • Analyze link type distribution. Is it found in a relevant area of an article, the comments, sponsored listing, a directory listing?Ensure that anchor text distribution is natural. Too many links with targeted anchor text will result in a loss in value in the search engine’s eyes.Diversify your anchor text and include a branded keyword. Be transparent about who you are.Be selective with directory listings and choose ones with a good reputation.Avoid link networks, Penguin will penalize you for having a suspicious number of sites interlinking with optimized anchor text.Focus on users. This is probably the most important tip. Create content that’s updated, useful, and relevant. People, not just machines, have to get something out of it.
