What to do After Penguin Update? Don’t Panic Just Yet!

by Suzanne on May 10, 2012

If you do any type of online marketing or SEO you’ve undoubtedly heard all of the rumblings about the “penguin update” from Google. So … now what? Well, none us “really” know yet what to do from here. Well, except to keep writing and posting since that’s the ONE thing we know pleases Google right?!

I don’t have much to report on this subject because it’s simply too soon to draw any real conclusions. There will be plenty of people testing out new ideas so I’ll leave it to them and wait to see what they say – after the dust has settled that is.

But my friend Michelle MacPhearson (From Idea to Impire) did a video stating my thoughts exactly so I thought I’d share it with you.

What do you think of the whole Google update? Were your sites hurt by this latest round or are you ranking better than ever? Let’s hear from you k? *huGs* Suzanne

P.S. Would you like some help making money online? Did you know that sites like Amazon and eBay will pay you to help them sell items that are listed for sale on their site? I can show you how I do it k? Click the banner below or contact me here for more info!

After the update some of my rankings went up and most went down. What I did was find bad links and removed the, then wait.

What this update really changes we will see soon. My personal opinion is, that if you have good quality content you will win in the end. You can push your site at the beginning, as long you don’t use some huge black hat technics or automatic tools there should be no problem. Quality is king!

I’m webmaster of many website, very disappointing about SERP, I don’t know why my many website keyword drop in SERP, and which Google factor will focus. Not any website penalized by Google. Our link building method is batter. Last month many websites keyword in SERP and suddenly drop SERP after one by one keyword. please give me some idea to back keyword in SERP as soon as possible.

My website is quite new, so I guess I’ll never know if it would rank higher with Panda. I’ll just play by the new rules and hope for the best.

These updates have really affected us.
Do not be too quick to panic for us though.
When they started, we realised a drop in traffic. However, we were not worried since we have always been white hat and reader oriented rather than SEO oriented. However, we have always maintained the balance.
So after, and as we were updating ourselves on what was going across, we realised the true position of every site would only be known after the waves, probably a week after. I think that is true.
Our traffic doubled. What more could we say? Amazing article here you have. Regards.

Although ranking and SEO is important I really believe in marketing your website or blog to get it in front of the eyes of the consumer. Using social marketing networks and other tools are very important in doing this.

I don’t think Google will be too harsh on you if you keep to the programme of content, content and more content. It will affect you if sail too close to the wind in terms of being sneaky. Like all things it’s never easy to get proper results but the long temr benefits are worth it.

We should not also limit your online marketing strategy by just creating content on the website because you heard it from an expert. Remember content is not the only way to boost your ranking again.

Very nice article. Yes I as the one hwo got hit by Penguin update and lost all my traffic and ranking. It was a shocking news to see my blog status suddenly dripped down more than 70%.

From then on I’m trying and working towards it to recover back. I found this article to be useful and I will implement your ideas to get back my traffic and ranking

Thanks You.

Yes Mike … time will tell LOL … I’ve all but given up on SEO! I use so many other methods to drive traffic (i.e. video, social media, blog commenting, etc.) and I hope to see some of my rankings come back here soon πŸ˜‰

To attract attention to your piece, you can leverage the search, social and content trifecta. By creating high-quality pieces and then distributing them on social media, you start to attract attention to your work.
