1. Panda

Launched: Feb 24, 2011
Rollouts: ~monthly
Goal: De-rank sites with low-quality content


Google Panda is a calculation used to appoint a substance quality score to pages and down-rank locales with low-quality, spammy, or thin substance. At first, Panda was a channel as opposed to a piece of Google's center calculation, yet in January 2016, it was formally joined into the positioning algo. While this doesn't imply that Panda is currently connected to query items continuously, it indicates that both getting separated by and recouping from Panda now happens speedier than some time recently. 

Perils 

Copy content 

Counterfeiting 

Thin substance 

Client created spam 

Catchphrase stuffing 

Poor client encounter 

Step by step instructions to remain safe 

1. Check for copy content over your site. Inside copied content is a standout amongst the most well-known Panda triggers, so it's suggested that you run customary site reviews to ensure no duplication issues are found. You can do it with SEO PowerSuite's Website Auditor (on the off chance that you have a little webpage with under 500 assets, the free form ought to be sufficient; for greater sites, you'll require a WebSite Auditor permit). 



To begin the check, dispatch WebSite Auditor and make a task for your webpage. Hang in a minute until the application finishes the creep. Whenever done, focus on the on-page area of SEO factors on the left, particularly Duplicate titles and Duplicate meta portrayals. On the off chance that any of those have an Error status, tap on the hazardous factor to see a full rundown of pages with copy titles/portrayals.
On the off chance that for reasons unknown you can't bring down the copy pages, utilize a 301 divert or accepted tag; then again, you can hinder the pages from ordering with robots.txt or the noindex meta tag. 

2. Check for counterfeiting. Outer duplication is another Panda trigger. On the off chance that you presume that some of your pages might be copied remotely, it's a smart thought to check them with Copyscape. Copyscape gives some of its information for nothing (for example, it gives you a chance to look at two particular URLs), however for a thorough check, you may require a paid record. 

Numerous ventures (like online stores with a large number of item pages) can't generally have 100% extraordinary substance. In the event that you run a web based business webpage, endeavor to utilize unique pictures where you can, and use client surveys to influence your item portrayals to emerge from the group. 

3. Distinguish thin substance. Thin substance is somewhat of an obscure term, yet it's by and large used to depict a deficient measure of interesting substance on a page. Regularly, thin substance pages will be pages with low word tally that are loaded with promotions, partner joins, and so on., and give minimal unique esteem. On the off chance that you feel thin substance could be an issue on your site, it's a smart thought to quantify it as far as word check and the quantity of active connections on the page. 

To check for thin substance, explore to the Pages module in your WebSite Auditor venture. Find the Word tally section (if it's not there, right-tap the header of any segment to enter the workspace altering mode, and add the Word tally segment to your dynamic segments). Next, sort the pages by their oath check by tapping on the section's header to in a flash detect the ones with almost no substance.

You can sort your pages by this section also by tapping on its header. You may likewise need to add the Word tally segment to this workspace to see the relationship between's active connections and word rely on each of your pages. Watch out for pages with minimal substance and a generous number of active connections. 



Mind that an "alluring" word depend on any page is attached to the motivation behind the page and the watchwords that page is focusing on. E.g. for inquiries that infer the searcher is searching for snappy data ("what's the capital of Nigeria", "service stations in Las Vegas"), pages with a hundred expressions of substance can do extraordinarily well on Google. The same goes for searchers searching for recordings or pictures. In any case, if those are not the questions you're focusing on, excessively numerous thin substance pages (<250 words) may get you in a bad position. 

Concerning active connections, Google suggests keeping the aggregate number of connections on each page under 100 as a dependable guideline. So in the event that you detect a page with under 250 expressions of substance and more than 100 connections, that is a quite strong pointer of a thin substance page. 

4. Review your site for watchword stuffing. Catchphrase stuffing is a term used to portray over-enhancement of a given page component for a watchword. To make sense of if there are catchphrase stuffing issues on your pages, it's a smart thought to take a gander at your best positioning rivals' pages (that is precisely what SEO PowerSuite's WebSite Auditor utilizes as a part of its Keyword Stuffing recipe, notwithstanding the general SEO best practices). 

In your WebSite Auditor venture, go to Content Analysis, and add the page you'd jump at the chance to break down. Enter the catchphrases you're focusing with this page, and let the apparatus run a speedy review. At the point when the review is finished, focus on Keywords in title, Keywords in meta depiction, Keywords in body, and Keywords in H1. Navigate these variables one by one, and observe the Keyword stuffing segment. You'll see a Yes esteem here in case you're abusing your catchphrases in any of these page components. To perceive how your best rivals are utilizing catchphrases, change to the Competitors tab.
5. Fix the issues you find. Once you've distinguished the Panda-inclined vulnerabilities, attempt to settle them when you can to anticipate being hit by the following Panda emphasis (or to recoup rapidly on the off chance that you've been punished). You can alter your pages right in WebSite Auditor on the off chance that you go to Content Analysis > Content Editor. Here, you can alter your substance in a WYSIWYG proofreader, HTML, and play around with your titles and meta depiction in an easy to use manager with a Google scrap see. On the left, the on-page components will recalculate as you write. Once you've rolled out the important improvements, hit the Save catch to spare the transfer prepared HTML document to your hard drive.
