Has Google Panda Updates hurt your MLM Network Marketing website rankings?
Has it hurt your search results for your home business?
I did a post on Google Panda updates this past week and how they have impacted all the MLM Network Marketing websites around the profession. There were 5 things that I suggested after much research that would help in your “panda recovery” of the logarithm adjustments.
I have still been researching it, as our site on certain keywords got hammered. Here are 5 more Google panda “fixes” or website corrections you may want to consider if you have been hurt in any way by this. Over 15% of ALL searches have been impacted by this August “tweak.” and that is HUGE in search.
Why did Google do it?
To get rid of “Fluff” content and scraper sites. But I must admit it appears to have not worked that well judging from the front page results I am now seeing that sites that little or no content and all they are doing is selling something- are ranking.
Here are 5 MORE Google Panda updates to get your Network Marketing website or blog back in the running on the front page of Google for your search terms:
1. NO scraped, spun, or unoriginal content.
Google has really clamped down on this. They have in their logarithms now a way that they can see if articles and posts are “spun.” Many marketers have been doing this for years diluting the integrity of many article directory sites as well as blog directories. I have always thought it to be somewhat questionable as it tries and manipulates the SE results.
Google slapped it down and is now going after the ‘spinners’ and we will see who wins.
2. Always link out to other posts as well as an authority site EVERY post.
Google likes to see you spread the love.And liking out to authority sites is one way of doing it. In your post or article, link out to sites that carry some weight in your profession and do it at least once every post. This will show Google you have done your homework and you are making sure that folks know you are going to prove a point by linking to other content that is related to your post.
3. Make sure that your links are high in the article and you use ANCHOR TEXT on your links.
This alone is something that could play heavily in the search engine results of your blog or website. I would suggest you link out in the first or second paragraph. This will allow people to start seeing that your content is researched and focused on quality answers and information.
And make sure that in your posts, that you use ANCHOR TEXT– “skincare tips” for example that will say what the article is about. Do NOT use the url of the site. Hyperlink it and then you will be more in line with what will work for Google.
4. No Keyword stuffing in your Title, or Article.
This is a HUGE NO NO now. You must use keywords but do not OVERUSE them. It will hurt your ranking and search results. This is something that really has been made important in the panda updates and August tweak.
I would suggest that you have about a 3-5 % keyword density. And BOLD the keywords to let the reader know what your article is about. This helps the reader have a more powerful experience with your post and article.
5. No Ads or Banners above the fold on your article or post.
If you run banner ads and links in your article or post- make sure they are BELOW the fold of the article. Google really has an issue with banner ads and link ads being first in your article. That is just the way it is!
These are 5 Google Panda Update “fixes’ that will help you repair and recover from the updates. Also LINKS still Rule. Do not forget that as you write your posts and articles for your network marketing home business blog or website.
