Google Announces Panda Update 24

Google Panda Update

The first Google Panda update of the year is here, with version #24 being rolled out yesterday.  The refresh will impact 1.2% of English based queries, according to Google.

A few weeks ago I provided a few tips on how to prevent your site from being affected by the Panda.  In addition, here are a few things to check your site for that could make it vulnerable:

  • Having very little unique, high-quality content
  • Few or no quality inbound links to your page or site
  • Low visit times
  • A lot of duplicate content.  This can apply to individual pages, to your entire site, or both.
  • A high bounce rate
  • A high percentage of pages with low unique content
  • A high percentage or boilerplate content
  • Lots of irrelevant ads
  • A lot of unnatural use of a word on a page
