7 Areas to Address Google Panda Algorithm Update
Tuesday, March 08, 2011
Webmasters and site owners are still scrambling in the aftermath of Google's Farmer/Panda algorithm update.  There has been a lot of backlash as some are reporting traffic losses as high as 80%.    While some people are, to put it mildly, pissed off, others suggest that this update is long overdue.

While I think that Google is still tweaking this update, (I have a feeling March 24th might be an interesting day for some --> First roll out of Update Jan. 26, second roll out - Feb. 25, third major rollout - March 24?) I have compiled a list of seven areas that may have been part of the recent algorithm update. 

7 Areas to Address Google Panda Algorithm Update
  1. Low Quality Page Clean Up
    • Block low quality pages with traffic
    • Remove low quality pages that hurt overall credibility for the site.
    • Enhance existing content with additional content
  2. Removal of Ad heavy pages
  3. Clean Up of duplicate content
    • Analyzing stolen content and requesting removal
      • Reporting blatant offenders to Google
      • Leverage Google Chrome Extension – blocklist?
  4. Improve Inbound Linking – an indication of significant user engagement in the eyes of Google
    • guest blog posts
    • social media channels
    • discussion forums where your topic area is being discussed
  5. Social Engagement - is your audience actively discussing the topics on your site? Are they sharing the content on social media sites?
  6. Lower Click through rates – re-optimize titles and meta descriptions
  7. Too many internal links? – reports suggest that this may have been a small part of the algo update.
Regardless, these are items that you might want to revisit anyway.

    Too many internal links can affect your SEO?? I always thought many internal links is a good thing to build up the structure of your store?
