Google Panda Updates-So What New Changes Await Us
If you have been following my home business blog, you might be surprised to read another Google Panda post. Here is the post that I wrote less than a month ago: Has Google Panda Update Hurt Your Online Business Opportunities?
Well I have good reasons because I am seeing so many articles written about Google Panda Updates that you really cannot ignore the importance. Nor the huge impact it is causing all of us now and our online business opportunities and in the near future. Yes and even online marketers are using Google Panda to market whatever new products they are launching. Like this: Panda Is Changing 35% Of Google SERP’s – But The Backlink Bonanza Will Kill Anything You Throw At It. Or this : “Google Panda On Steroid System” with promises that “Google Panda will be running scared the moment you unleashed this cutting edge SEO Outsourcing System…” Even “Google Proof” your site seems to be a common way of talking among many Internet Marketers too.
The following are some articles I stumbled upon last week which discuss the Google Panda Algorithm changes and some intelligent guessing as to what you can expect post Panda. It’s anybody’s guess as to what new changes the new Google Panda Updates will bring over the months and years but it is better to be prepared than just be sitting ducks when it comes. Here’s what I think might happen:
The Possibility:Partial Match Anchor Text Will Get More SEO Weightage
What is Partial Match Anchor Text : It’s any anchor text that contains at least one of your keyword phrases. So if your keyword phrase was Red Cherries, then your partial match anchor text could be ‘best cherries’ or ‘I like cherries’.
My Thoughts: I think most of us have been over focusing on exact keywords anchor text, exact domain match probably a little too much. We tend to overdo things whenever we can see that we have achieved huge success from doing so. Yes even when we hear many SEO guys teaching about diversity, anchor text variations, LSI keywords. Well perhaps it’s about time we do some soul searching and do more of partial anchor text when we do our link building from now. What do you think?
The Possibility: Google’s Preparing For Social Networking In A BIG Way
My Thoughts: This is now an open secret as Google has talked about it many times before so expect to see Google giving Social Networking much much more importance. For ranking. If you didn’t know, they made a song and dance when Google launched Google Plus 1 so go figure out. Recently a Google spokesperson talked about Google’s use of social signals as a ranking factor during an interview with Danny Sullivan of Search Engine Land.
The Possibility: Google Becoming More Aggressive In Penalizing Sites With Poor Content or Untrusted:
My Thoughts: Google has been saying this for a very long time even before the days of Google Panda Updates came about. Build sites with unique content and sites that people who land on them actually enjoy reading what they have to say. Well I suspect Google is going to get even tougher with webmasters who continued to build thin sites including affiliate marketing sites. People just have to learn that those days of making a quick buck are over. What do you think?
