Posted a while ago how all of my sites, every single site and page had been slapped since panda. I have tried everything, including redirects but it seems redirects just transfer any penalty if any to the new domain after a few days even though I regained rankings temporarily.
From first being hit I decided to try something different. I am in no way claiming what I done is responsible for my recovery as of 2 days ago, but it does seem pretty weird.
What did I do? Well, I kept content the same as I felt it was unique and quality, what was the point of rewriting stuff just cause google don't like it. I know what I am talking about so why let some robots tell me it's no good.
Anyway, all of my sites were made in xsite pro. For a change I decided to reflesh 5 sites in wordpress, same tags, descriptions, contents setting etc as they were on xsite pro. Whilst doing so I added tweeting functionality as well as facebook and got me some followers, just for a change as I was so used to the bland static xsite pro approach.
Kept the wordpress homepage static, enabled comments and left. As of yesterday 4 of those 5 sites have popped back up on the first page regaining there original positions or just missing them by 2-3 places.
4 sites have 10-12 pages of content, not including about, privacy etc. the 5th site has over 30 pages and of that 17 pages have gained close to there original positions.
No additional backlinking was done, just what I stated. Now I know this could just be a case of re-ranking and perhaps soon they will drop again, who knows. But as of now money is on the up, and although confused, I am going to enjoy it while I can.
What are your thoughts on this? Has anyone else experienced this?
