10 Simple Steps To Recover from Google Panda Updates

You Are Here

Recover from Google Panda Update with the following steps. Even though Google has worked “wonders through the cute animal” for the users, but the very same “cute animal” has eventually turned out to be a “devil” for the webmasters, bloggers and Internet marketers. The very latest buzz around the entire Internet market is about the Google Panda Update.

Though the agenda and motive of Google cannot be doubted in providing the great content to the users, but the same motive has turned out to be a headache for even the most legitimate sites.If your website has also been affected by the Panda, here are a few steps that will help you recover from Google Panda Update.


Steps to Recover from Google Panda updates


Step 1: Analyze Your Web Host

The very first step that you need to do is to check your website host. If your website is being hosted by a low-quality of sub-standard hosting company which has no name in the market at all, you need to seriously analyze and change your host for better rests, as far as Panda is kept into consideration.


Step 2: No-Index certain pages

The second step that can help you in recovering from the hit by Panda is to no-index your tag pages, archives and category pages. These might the pages without any traffic at all and by no-indexing them, you might just recover from Panda effect. At least, some of the websites that did this recovered or are at the path of it! If you are using a robots meta plugin then there is a option to No-index tag, category and archive pages from the Google. If you haven’t installed Robot’s meta plugin yet then install it from here.


Step 3: Update Your Site Regularly

Alright, if the new plug-ins is also futile to the Panda effect, do not get worried and normally keep updating your site. Make sure that you write a lot better and informative content that will help you recover from the Google Panda Update. Definitely, content is the “culprit” here and so, by focusing on this word, you can recover the fastest!


Step 4: Remove Low Quality Content/ Posts from Your blog

Visit Google analytics and check which pages or posts affected by the Panda updates. You should improve the quality of these affected pages and must write the Content that users trust. Also Look at your poor performing pages and if you think these posts does not have any value to the visitor, then simply remove them or noindex them from Google webmaster. If you think some posts are useful for your readers then rewrite them and do some optimization.


Step 5: Get Rid of Unwanted Plugins, let your site load sooner!

If you have certain unwanted or rather useless widgets or plug-ins on your site that delay its loading time, make sure you ward them off your site completely. This will eventually help you in loading your website faster and effectively. This will also help you in increasing the page views per visit.


Step 6: Traffic Will be Back With Back Links, folks!

Affected by the Panda effect, most of the website/blog owners have forgotten the importance of back links. Come on, it’s just the Panda effect, but forgetting the Golden rule will actually do the harm to your site! Do not forget Google still loves the links and so getting the back links is utmost important for your site. You will see your site recover from Panda within merely 8-10 days.


Step 7: Improve the Internal Linking

Google always loves internal linking as much as external links, so always keep this thing in mind when you write new posts- interlink these with old posts with relevant keywords. I am using SEO smart link plugin for the same, you can download it from here.


Step 8 : Manage the number of Ads

You must manage the ads that you are using on your blog. A large number of ads can make the viewers uncomfortable and sometime will irritate them. These become a barrier while reading content on the website. Always select the relevant location for these ads.  Too many ads will always cause a problem for the viewers and interfering with the reader expererience while on your site, so keep control on ads.


Step 9 : Get rid of duplicate content

If you have lots of duplicate content on your site, then it’s time to get rid of it all! Remove all the duplicate content, irrelevant contents, pages and bad links to your site.


Step 10 : Fix crawl errors

It’s time to visit Google webmaster tool, and check for the Crawl errors. Get rid of them and try to solve all errors from Google webmaster tool.

Most of all, remember that these steps are no miracle and in order to recover from the Panda effect, you will still need to work hard, the way you did while launching your site. Think of it as a “restart” if you have been greatly hit by the Google Panda Update and start afresh with the aforementioned steps!

If you are one of the victim of Google panda updates then I hope all above steps will surely help you to recover from Google Panda updates. You can also share the steps you used to recover from Google panda with us via comments below.
