Google Panda Update Solutions

Panda diagnosis and remediation from SEO experts

Google frequently updates its algorithms, and after one of its Panda updates, organic traffic to susceptible websites can drop quickly and dramatically. The reasons for such an impact may be elusive for some websites. Even after months or years of effort made toward remediation, recovering can be a long process.

Internet Marketing Ninjas has been assisting website owners to recover their Google organic search traffic since the launch of the first Panda update on February 23, 2011. Our SEO consulting team conducts extensive research and employs a proprietary suite of tools to craft a customized roadmap for Panda update recovery for your website.

As part of our approach, we first partner with you for a discovery process to get aligned on the project. We then conduct research using our suite of proprietary tools to provide you with a detailed, hand-crafted analysis of all of our findings and an IT-ready list of action items to facilitate recovery of traffic. Additionally, our consultants and our account managers partner together to ensure that you are fully supported and all of your questions are answered from start to finish.

We have a highly detailed approach and record of websites we have assisted toward a path of recovery.

We at Internet Marketing Ninjas strongly recommend that you closely review your analytics for Google organic traffic over time. If a major drop in traffic has occurred, see if the date of the drop or the day the drop starts aligns with any of the major Google Panda updates listed below:

Here are the dates of the Penguin Updates

Now, the goal is to get out of Panda. Bear in mind that filing a re-inclusion request or a reconsideration request will not have any effect on the Panda penalty. Panda updates are often complicated, with many different facets to be explored and analyzed; those mentioned above are just a few factors. By running and extensively analyzing multiple proprietary tools and conducting detailed auditing, the Ninjas are able to generate many possible solutions and implement them to send better signals to Google. After solutions have been implemented, your website can be re-analyzed.

Getting out of Panda is not easy. In February of 2012, Barry Schwartz, an SEO industry thought leader, posted the results of his survey from Search Engine Roundtable asking how many people had recovered after Panda updates. The sobering fact is that a full year after Panda started, only 13% of the websites had recovered! This is not something to be taken lightly, and webmasters cannot usually fix it with a few simple tweaks. This is a matter of finding the “cancers” of your website content and fixing them or cutting them out, whether that means repairing bad interlinking, adding new content, or just improving the user experience. More specifically, it often translates to identifying the sections of the website that the Panda algorithm has targeted as being low-quality and fixing those sections or removing them completely.
