Panda 4.0 didn’t just punish, it also rewarded sites that may have been unduly affected in previous refreshes.
We did our own in-depth research with our own resources and have noticed that majority of the sites we are optimizing weren’t affected at all by this update by Google. This is how one should prevent small businesses like you being negatively affected by Panda 4.0 or future Panda updates.
• Focus on high quality web content – Do you have redundant text content on your blog? Time to clean it up! You should not be duplicating text content throughout your website or blogs.
• Avoid web site over-optimization – It may feel nice to add a keyword to every sentence, title tag, header tag and description. But that’s not going to cut it these days. Focus on quality and useful text content and readability.
• Maintain a useable website – We mean it! Your site should be easy to navigate and fast to load. Your pages should load quickly. You shouldn’t have broken images, links, or errors on the site. Google has been saying for years that usability will affect your ability to rank.
The good news is that for those who have focused on high quality, well writtenweb and blog content while keeping their audience firmly in focus, not much appears to have changed. And with Google focusing so heavily on quality content as a rank increases, it doesn’t look like it’s going to change anytime soon.
