Google Panda is Change in Google’s search result ranking Algorithm. The main Aim of this change is to higher the rank of “Good quality content sites” and to lower the rank of “low quality content sites” in Search Result page. Recover from Google Panda effect


Google Panda was first released in February 2011 since then it has received many Updates. Many webmasters are still in trouble due to Google Panda. Google Panda is most common and site wide penalty which affects the domain name i.e. entire website gets affected. In this post we will discuss many important things related to Google Panda which includes the recovery method also. Many Good websites which were ranking high in Search Engine result page in the past lost their search engine ranking after the update. We can never ignore or avoid the guidelines that are given by Google if we want to do well in Search result. I always respected Google not because It is major search engine, because it has always given the priority to Content which is most important thing.

What Kind of Websites get affected Due to Panda algorithm change ?

The websites which are making use of Black hat SEO techniques will get penalized. Google panda separates the low quality site and high quality site so if your ranking has decreased make sure that your content is relevant and informative.

The websites with too much advertising, poor navigation, Bad-links, bad user experience, Duplicate contents, slow loading speed, etc. may face the problem due to Panda’s algorithm change .  After the release of Google Panda high quality Content became the first priority and with this the importance of On page SEO, Off page SEO, Social media presence, etc. also increases.

This update has simple objectives which are :

  • Penalizing those sites which are making use of Black hat techniques.
  • Ranking high quality sites first than low quality sites in Search Result page.
  • Good content is always a winner.
  • Well optimized Sites are likely to perform well in Search Engine result page i.e. The value of SEO has increased.

Before assuming that you are affected by Google Panda make sure whether your site is visible to Google or not ? Submit your site to Google and also submit sitemap if you are a beginner and wait until your site is indexed completely.

How to Recover from Google Panda effect ?

One thing I would like to mention here that we have not faced any problem due to Panda algorithm change because we never followed any wrong method which was violating the Search Engines guidelines. Frankly speaking Recovering from Google Panda effect is very easy. So lets see how you can Recover from Google Panda effect :

#1. Removing Low Quality Content and writing high quality content :

The first and most important step to be followed is Removing Low Quality Content from Google and from the site as well. Writing SEO friendly content itself is a tough task and most of the people fails in writing the high quality content. Read this : How to write SEO friendly blog posts in WordPress.

High quality content doesn’t means 4000 creepy words it means a well written post which is easy to read, informative, sharable and explains the topic. The keyword should be good and popular on the internet. You may like : The Importance of Keyword in Search Engine Optimization.

#3.  Social Sharing :

Social sharing is very effective and brings lots of traffic instantly but for that you should have strong reach and popular page on the Social Networks. For me Twitter is the main source whenever I share something on twitter there is the sudden increase in Visitors count.

5 major Social Networks (Twitter, Google+, Facebook, LinkedIn and Pinterest ) you should target if You don’t have enough time for Social Networks.

#4. SEO friendly themes :

I use WordPress and of-course SEO friendly theme. SEO friendly theme has lots of advantage and if you are just starting with the WordPress go for free themes and if you think you want a good theme and you have money then go for Premium themes. I have always used Free themes as I don’t have lots of Money.

#5. External Links :

Link to a Good website and stop selling paid links. Never link unnecessarily because it can affect your site’s ranking in Search Engine. I always link to a good reputed website which has relevant content and better Search Ranking. There is no such thing that link to 1 or 2 times not more than that but do not link unnecessarily it may down your reputation in Search Engine’s Eyes.

These are the 5 best ways to recover from Google Panda effect. There may be many more ways but I think SEO covers rest of the ways because Avoiding Keyword stuffing, Using H1,H2,H3, etc. comes under the On page SEO. I mean to say learn SEO because if you know the SEO no such updates will be headache for you.

Quick Points :

  • Avoid Duplicate contents.
  • Remove low quality contents.
  • Write high quality and SEO friendly blog posts.
  • Fix Broken links.
  • Use SEO friendly themes.
  • Make use of Social Networks.
  • Remove Spammy comments .
