    Is it me or did this article just say when the update happened and what they are targetting.
    Then basically said, if you dissapeared on th 19th, it was panda, the 26th it was penguin.

    If you went down, you got hit, if you went up you got rewarded, if nothing happened then nothing happened.

    Some people who deserved it got it….some people who didnt deserve it didnt…other people had other things happen.

    The equiv of:

    Rain and how to know when its raining:

    Go outside in the morning, if you are wet its morning rain.
    Go outside in the afternoon, if you are wet then its afternoon rain
    Go outside if you are dry its not rain.

    If you are wet, use a towel, if you are not dont use a towel.

    LOL

    You make the point against this. I can copy anyones content and for a FIVERR have it spammed to 1200 article sites.

    Or Xrummer 5000 blog comments to a competitors site, cant be that way.

    As for his site, thats SEO not over SEO, if its 5 years old, and the worst that can be found is “commercial” is on the page too much?

    Not the issue, or if it is the update is garbage.

    His site isnt beuatiful, but the links are all in context to many COMMERCIAL products and offerings.

    Im guess a pizzeria says “pizza” alot too. So If i link to my 20 kinds of pizzas I get banned?

    Is that really a way to gauge quality?

    Meanwhile this website ranks #1…this .info with hidden text and zero useful content.

    Yeah..yahoo has been above google since like 2005.

    For me thats a PR stunt, who the hell is search for a search engine on a search engine anyway? This way they look “impartial” and can say it proves the algo is fair.

    I don’t understand why your comment was edited by a moderator, but the example you did about “exteriorhousewashing . info” ranking at the first page of Google is a great example that the big G Penguin or whatever update they have created to improve SERPs are just failing. I see that site on 6th position when it should be on top one billion, o even better, that site shouldn’t be shown on any SE.

    Well, I have got some confusion where I do not understand that “keyword stuffing” means what? and how to avoid it? Other thing is I read somewhere that Google has penalized few websites which are optimized for a single page or  home page only. Is that true. Do we need to balance the whole website in terms of SEO?

    This is really pathetic! ah! My site traffic was stable till the 4th of may and now has dipped to less than half !!!

    I would have thought that if those particular pizzas are well searched for keywords then you’re in trouble. However, in all likelihood for a pizzeria it would be location keywords that would be more important, such as “New York Pizzeria” as opposed to “cheese and tomato pizzas”. If you have anchor texts for the competitive phrases that is when you will start to drop within the rankings.

    Panda affected my site but it recovered automatically after few days. However I am more concerned about Negative SEO, since penguin hit my site, so I checked my site via DMCA and found out more than 20 sites copied my contents. Few of those were more than 85% same!

    These sites are run by some big companies and those are micro sites actually, keeping there business safe, they are running several sites copying contents from other like me. If this is the reason, penguin affected my site, I am really in dark as I don’t know what should I do to fight against these guys! 

  • http://www.seomasterexpert.com/ SEO India

    I saw in many blogs/forums someone sent the reconsideration request to Google & got messages “No Manual spam actions found”.

    after one week they were thinking to get rank again in Google but nobody got ranks in Google. All was surprised! They have used unique content, no Keyword stuffing, no link manipulation. qualities work.

    I am thinking why they not got rank again. Where is the problem now. 

    I would like to request suggest me whats the problem to resolve this issues.

    @mattmcgee:disqus , what you just said is non-sense. So you are saying honest webmasters with great sites are wrong?  Read this article: http://wpmu.org/wordpress-penguin-google-matt-cutts/
    I have great respect to wpmu sites, they are a great blog offering great content and number of followers. I obviously don’t believe this type of blogging is wrong. WPMU site does not like to belong to a spammy link network. No honest webmaster would do that…
      Google is WRONG, they tweak their algo such as its almost impossible for any penguinized blogger to correct or clean link profiles brought about by spammy network.

    Hi Dawn , you are so right, I was thinking exact same.  Our site went down from 1800 visitors per day to 350  so our sales – almost none….!  I wanted to concentrate on writing our own ebook – but I’m stunned what to do now – why do it when our site is so down – unless we are forced to pay to for adwords to make up for sales we would otherwise get…..

    really really sad….

    http://www.highstreetweddingdresses.co.uk – I’ve gone from position 8-12 for the search ‘high street wedding dresses’ and other similar ones to nowhere in the top 500. I am still quite new to this but as as far as I know I have done everything by the book and think I add genuine value to the above search, so am just confused really. Any thoughts you could send my way would be very gratefully received!

     In my view Google is changing its algorithm now which is affecting mostly the sites doing SEO, even I’ve example of sites which are just inactive for last 2 years & now get into the top 10 of Google for  highly competitive keywords related to diet solution program after the latest updates.

    So the point is why the inactive site reach top 10 of Google, the only reason is that all others in the top 50 or top 100 are doing SEO through various methods which Google doesn’t think appropriate. Does it mean that lets stop & watch how the competitors are doing mistake again.

    At this point I feel that Google is making some mistakes as well. Why ? Because Google is penalizing those sites which are ranking top 10 in Google earlier due to their positive factors then how it can penalize those sites which are its favorite few days back. That means Google algorithm is not so strong to give consistent & best results to its users.

    I’ve been studying Google algorithm & thinking from last 1+ years about how to make the Google algorithm so strong that it’ll be difficult to manipulate its results through SEO and during this analysis I found that NATURALITY is the only way to implement in Google algorithm to give the best results to users. And am sure that Google is implementing this right now.

    So, that is what I’m getting in G SERP’s a lot pages hosted in Angelfire servers created in the 90′s when CSS didn’t even exist. Of course, pages from that age didn’t do SEO, but they SUCK,  those pages are harmful to the eyes! Sad, but G SERP’s suck at this moment.

  • David Bill

    It’s a very confusing time right now, or it seems to be. I’m skeptical of those who say they have answers on many of the blogs and I like this list with your take.
    I guess I can infer something from your ‘agree’ or ‘disagree’ answers, though more detailed answers as to why would be great, even if they would show up only on the paid newsletter to which I happily subscribed.

    Dear sir
    My name is Javid and I launched my site about 8 months ago. (www.apam.ir)
    We started with 30 articles in a day and we have 7thousands of them by now.
    Lately (about first of December) I have read in some websites and weblogs that if you make the tags No index you will obtain much better traffic from Google, so with Robot and No index tags I removed our tags.
    It was about December 20 that there were no tags from our site in Google anymore.
    Then about 2 days later our visit and ranking fell down suddenly.
    I also took a few photos that show our decline in visiting in December 25 and December 26.
    And there were no change in this situation for about one month,
     for instance we publish an article for the first time and after some hours the other websites which copied our article get a better ranking than us and apparently all of our input is from Google images.
    We faced a great fell in word searching either.
    Now here is the question, what can I do with this?
    Is it happened because of making No index all of the tags in my site?
    Is it happen because of Google Penguin?
    We had about 10 thousands tags that were removed from Google even though it is normal to have so many tags in Persian websites.
    I have sent a revised form but it is not answered yet.
    Some weblogs says Matt Katz recommended to launch a new site
    How if I set up a new domain and take a back up from my site there?
    What is your suggestion for me?
    If you need any more information please just let me know.
    I have find your blog from Google and looking forward for your answering.
    Here is some pictures from us in Google Webmaster Tools

    I added too our site name in all of titles of the articles.
    Our content were like this before:
    Title
    But I’ve changed it to:
    Article Title- Title of Site
    And 6-7thousands a more of these changes
    my droped trafick from google is Quarter or Third

    My website was hit by this penguin update and I am still waiting for recovery. I tried to remove backlinks which I could. I requested many webmasters to remove backlink to my website from their page. But no one responded yet. My own articles on Ezine and hubpages are listed on the search results but not my website. Not sure what to do now?

    Apologies but i’m really angry that Google has penalized me and won’t tell me what for so i’m really negative at the moment.

    This is some of the crap that i have to put up with. I’ve emailed the owner, the host and the domain manager and nobody does anything.

    I’ve never done any link building so why do i survive all the Panda updates then get hit hard on the 14th April? Penguin didn’t start until the 24th.

    The Penguin update is one of Google’s latest updates. I like many of you have been scouring the Internet for all information about the club penguin update..lol…sorry, I couldn’t resist.Anyway, from what I have been reading, I am under the impression that it is more of a spam filter than an algorithm update. So now more than ever, content is going to be even more important, along with good link building practices. Some might even go as far as forgoing link building, but venture into creating great content that others will share via social media.
