      Looks like you are under a penalty of some kind. Did you lose ranking for your keywords?

      You should check your Google Webmaster Tools if you received any of their recent messages. If you don't use GWT, it is a bit harder....but you can use link analyzer tools like Majestic SEO and analyze your links.

      If you have too many links from blog comments or from blog networks, Google will red-flag you for Unnatural Link building. They have announced a penalty coming for Over-Optimization, next month.

      If you can, try to delete as many of the bad backlinks as possible.....

          Well, after checking out your site, I think you've got a duplicate content problem. If you hired guest writers, it looks like they took articles and just changed around the sentences.

          Check Copyscape.

  • I'm hit by this too, although not nearly as hard as you. It's too early to estimate exactly how bad the situation is, but once I'd had a good look at my stats I did feel compelled to go outside for some fresh air.

    But hey. **** them. Now I just feel motivated to get back to work - I'm going to get my rankings back, and then some.

  • "Only ~1.6% of queries noticeably affected," says Google. To me, this is another case of Google saying one thing, and me experiencing something completely different. This is the first time I've been hit by Panda to the point where it hurts, though, so I guess it's not all bad.

    Good thing: several of my underworked EMD sites have jumped in the rankings - a few from page two to page one. I like that. Goes to show that a broadly diversified portfolio of sites is the way to go when you depend on this stuff to pay the bills.

    Remember that links have nothing to do with Panda. If your site took at hit then they're telling you your site is not up to par quality wise. Sure you can have unique content, but if its lousy then it's game over.

      Not sure I agree at all. Many major link networks were hit hard with major delisting this month. I have read dozens of stories of people losing lots of ranking because they relied on link networks for the majority of their back linking.
      I have never used link networks but I had 3 sites get hit and lose about 33% of their traffic on thursday. This latest change was all about bac klinking and not about last falls Panda.

        This was not Panda-related though.

    Interested I didn't hear anything about another update!

    If I were you I'd start looking at the quality of your website. Optimize your inner linking

    Optimize your content, make it easy to navigate (try to reduce ads above the fold)

    Post some new content

    Then lastly check your link building and see if it is something that can be fixed with more links

    Good luck hope you can figure it out

    I would suggest, you have to concentrate on off-site SEO part & you have to get more backlinks to your site (Don't go for more paid links or link exchanges, focus on contextual link building) - That should help you to get your site to rank well for keywords and may increase visitors.

    In between, I assumed that you are already ranking on Google and your GOOGLE traffic is decreased from 2000 to 300, but NOT your overall traffic which include other traffic sources.

          Actually the link to old blog post is about the history of Panda update and the tweet itself is about the recent G Panda 3.4 update.

    Reading the Google bulletin, it seems like the Big G is relying a lot on feedback from Chrome users. The bulletin mentions "the blocklist" and sites that have been blocked by Chrome users as being penalized. Food for thought....

    Now what you need to do is check your website and find out those proper problems and fix them. Give it several weeks and if nothing change, well, you need to move on, however, don't abandon this site, maybe it will take really long time, but its rank might come back someday.

      I was looking through and reading what other persons were saying about this last Panda update in another forum.

      Basically persons who were using a link building service like BMR (Build My Rank) had all of their sites d-indexed. This link building service also posted an article on their site explaining to their members the situation.

    Hi! Can you confirm the source from where you got to know of the Google update? I have a network of sites that have seen a decrease of traffic between 30%-55% in the last couple of months. I am trying to pin point the exact cause. But unable to find any. I don't think it has anything to do with duplicate content this time, but rather, something to do with links. Show me one site that has gained traffic since the last couple of months. Even Warrior Forum has lost 28% traffic during last month itself as per Alexa.

    Sounds like a Google penalty of some sort.
    I didn't see what sort of link building you are doing?
    If you used BMR then that would be a big issue for your sites if that was your sole backlinking strategy.
    If your monitoring your sites in Webmaster Tools then usually you will get mail from Google if your site is under penalty. A colleague of mine just received a content quality issue message from Google regarding his authority sites requesting changes within three days or the sites will be subject to a penalty. Nice of them, they usually just penalize you first leaving you to redress the issues before having to resubmit your site for reconsideration.
