    Panda doesn’t only affect spam. It also affected legitimate sites. Google makes mistakes and there is a certain amount of collateral damage on each update. I’ve seen it hit sites that did no spam or duplicate content at all.

    After months of working on my website, Google has finally stood by it’s claim that “good content” is King! Thank you Panda 4.0! I’m doing my happy dance! ;)

    Hi Clelia – skimmed through it, very quickly though. First off the content is natural which is want google wants – everyone knows that. however, the positive factors of this page are:

    1. people are getting involved here, they are commenting, you are repying – there is conversation happening. people are getting engaged and you are actively responding.
    2. you have relevant outbound links such as booking.com and links to other sites which are of interest for people who are travelling (sugba lagoon, the natural pools, etc). it is not just an article, it is a massive information portal with relevant information to other sites and the links are placed accordingly and contextually
    3. this is being linked from great sites such as tripadvisor, wanderingearl, and many more.
    4. the amount of social shares you have got just from this page alone is aweomse! kudos to you! people are liking this page and are sharing it NATURALLY which is one of the most important factors when it comes to online marketing

    overall there is so much happening here that has caused your rankings to improve. Yes, i do think that the Panda update has assisted this due to the fact that you have your content marketing on par, however the i think the above points i mentioned are a big factor as well. – i hope this helps!

    if anyone else has any thoughts please share. we would all like to know and learn more.

    (ps i didnt proof read this so apologies if there are any spelling/grammar errors)

    ok and btw. you might want to disavowal this site enricosecci.net at domain level. over 2000 links coming from here back to your site and it is a foreign website and completely irrelevant.

    True – Google is public company, they don’t care about You. They care about Their shareholders. That mean bringing money in house. I had Google IMAGE Ads not approved or limited in budget when they showing brands that advertise on Google. At the bottom of ALL Google work, algorithms, changes is one goal – more money for Google. That’s it. Its public company, its not Wikipedia or Craigslist.

    If you do enough of it, yes. Natural SEO is a time consuming process and doesn’t happen over night. There’s no harm in “encouraging” a link of course, but just make sure you have no form of editorial control and that no money changes hands.

    Panda does more than go after spam or duplicate content. it also goes after low-quality generic articles that add no value because the exact same information is already available many other places. The problem, and not saying this is you, but a LOT of people spin articles and then say ´this is not duplicate´. You don´t ´beat´ Panda by running a free ´plag´ checker online and passing it.

    A handful of the pages on my site saw a huge change on the 20th, some articles were 10x´s the traffic on the 20th as they average the previous 30 days.

    I checked our rankings yesterday, and yes, sites in Portuguese were also impacted. The good news is that since we are producing lots of content, and don’t use heavy backlink strategies, we had more ups than downs. And downs were by a couple of positions. So, Google is again rewarding content. For the Portuguese speaking folks, here is the link to the post that references this article: http://www.indiga.com.br/blog/bid/386902/J%C3%A1-viu-o-estrago-no-seu-SEO-hoje-Google-lan%C3%A7a-o-Panda-4-0
