In some of our previous blogs, we’ve taken a look at what Google Panda 4.0 is and how websites may be able to reap the most benefits from it. Here, however, we’ll look at the flip side of this algorithm update, examining what may be causing sites to be losing significant search engine rankings as a result of Google’s recent algorithm update.
Who’s Losing with this Update?
Websites that are already seeing drops in their rankings due to Google Panda 4.0 (as well as sites that are expected to see freefalls in the coming weeks and months) are those that:
- Are comprised of low-quality and/or unoriginal content (e.g. content that is riddled with typos and grammatical errors, as well as content that may be copied from other sources)
- Have duplicate content published in various places on the site (i.e., the same page or the majority of a page published under more than one different URL)
- Do not conform to SEO best practices (e.g., don’t have precisely and/or well-written title tags, descriptions, etc.)
- Are not continuing to add new, original, well-written content to the site on a regular basis.
A Spotlight on Some of the Big-Name Losers
So far, industry experts have identified some specific big-name websites that have seen significant drops in their rankings due to the rollout of Google Panda 4.0. Here’s a listing of just some of these “losers” in rankings due to Panda 4.0 (the percentages after the URLs indicate the percentage of drop in visibility within Google searches within about 48 hours of Panda 4.0 being rolled out):
- Ask.com (50 percent)
- Examiner.com (50 percent)
- Biography.com (33 percent)
- History.com (33 percent)
- Yellowpages.com (20 percent).
As the effects of Google Panda 4.0 continue to ripple over the Internet, there may be more big-name – as well as smaller – sites alike that are negatively impacted by this algorithm update. Don’t let your site be one of them. Instead, contact Epic Web Results to ensure that your site only sees improved rankings from Panda 4.0 (as well as future Google algorithm updates).
