Google Fred Update

by salmonjames21 12 replies
I have very stable site and lucky enough that my keywords are not dropped except one. After Google's Fred Update. What should I do to regain that keyword. Should I abandon my dead web 2.0 blogs?

    Why don't you just check your link profile? Check your one keyword that is ranking, is getting any unique links or not!

      I got only one keyword down while others are working fine for me. So what do I need to do in order to get back that dropped keyword?

    I would probably go to ahrefs.com and see the link profile there. See if you have a lot of junk pointing to your site. If so, disavow them or change some links to nofollow. Try to balance out your follow vs. nofollow links.

    Google Fred update is still not consistent. Wait for some time. Meanwhile, do social sharing, make relevant backlinks and disavow irrelevant backlinks to that keyword's url.
    I have written a detailed guide on my own blog Waleed Najam, about Google Fred update and steps you should take to prevent your websites from plenty.

    So far from what I have read, Fred seems to be targeting pages that have thin or not unique content. See what page(s) was ranking well for that keyword and evaluate whether or not there is enough truly good, unique content on that page that actually helps people. If it is generic information that can be found anywhere, it is a target for Fred.

    I would go next door and ask Barney.

    The internet is perfectly balanced, although you would think that "everyone" suffers some disaster.

    For every Fred, there's a Mr. Slate.

      Take a good, honest look at the PAGES that were ranking well for the search terms and see if they really are solid pages that are not duplicate content or worse, thin garbage pages full of "so what?" information. If the pages' sole purpose is to make money and they really don't provide truly valuable, non-generic information, fix them.

      And if and when that happens, will the people that overtook you be here at the WF, whining, and asking how to recover?

      You cannot have it both ways. You can't knock someone out, then complain when someone knocks you out.

      And then ask how to knock them out again....

      You people play leap frog. Why?

      If google is the only reason your "business" exists, you should be out of business already.

    Google Fred Update is not confirmed yet. Googlers John Mueller and Gary Illyes did confirm that something probably changed on that date because it was a Tuesday and Google rolls out changes to its live search engine “on average” (according to Illyes) about 3 times a (week)day . Web journalist Barry Schwartz collected about 70 URLs from people who claimed to have lost traffic on March 7. He feels he found a pattern among more than 90% of the sites he reviewed, such that they all seemed to combine low quality content with aggressive ad placement.

    Thanks all guys for your live and active participation but I must say that Google is changing things. As a matter of fact for thin content sites, this is something called as devastation. And yeah, I have witnessed that there's some dancing going on with my keywords and not able to say if it's fine or not.
