Panda Update – 5 Fixes For The Latest Google Adjustment

If your site is still suffering from the adjustment made to Google’s algorithm in mid October, I’ve got some ideas I’d like to share with you on how you can turn this trend around.

It’s been almost a month now since Google made the change that affected thousands of sites.

I know how disappointing it can be to see your hard work go poof overnight but if you sit back and take a hard look at what happened and why, I’m confidant you’ll be able to fix your pages so they once again get the ranking they had…or at least close to it.

Quality Content Defined – 5 Steps to Create Content that Google Loves

There really isn’t any reason to rehash the importance of quality content. The Panda story has been told over and over again. If you want to rank with Google you have to present content that has real value for the visitor and delivers on the promise of the title (keyword phrase).

But just how do you define quality content? We know what it isn’t. We know that fluff stuffed with keywords will get you nowhere. We know that 350 word spun article that was so popular with article marketers is no longer a viable way to rank.
