Today I opened my Facebook account and saw that many friends were claiming little increase or decrease in traffic. After reading all those I headed over to Google’s official twitter account. Because that is the one of the place where we can know that what is happening around Google.
Here is the Tweet about Latest Google Panda Algorithm Changes
New Panda data refresh rolling out today: 1.2% of English queries affected. Background: goo.gl/8Zqy1

This clearly Indicates that 1.2% of English queries are affected with this recent update.
Google Launched 27 Algorithm in year 2012. And those all updates were to combat low quality websites. Blogging have become so much common these days that many people are starting the blogs and this is the fact that in starting days of blogging they don’t know well. So according to Google those sites are low quality website.
Why Google is doing so much changes in the Algorithms?
Google is world’s best search engine and everyone wants best results from them. Internet is expending day by day and new technologies are coming to make our life simpler. More people are moving towards internet to learn the things and to make their life simpler.
Let me take a little example – If you have internet at your home and suddenly you heard that CBSE Exam Result declared. Then very first task you will do is to open Google and search there about “CBSE Result” and get the answers from Google.
How you got those results?
A Very simple answer is – “Because of Google’s search algorithm.”
So Google is working on it to make search queries more relevant and more accurate so that you can get the result what you were looking there. That is why they are changing the algorithms to give higher rank to quality websites.
What is in this Latest Google Panda Algorithm?
No doubt this algorithm was again to provide you high quality results in Google SERP. Here are the things which Google is looking at your blogs.
- Is your content original and trustable (means stop writing crappy old stories)?
- Is your blog having duplicate, overlapping, or redundant articles?
- Do you have proper knowledge about the article you are writing?
- Is the same content present on many other sites?
- Is your article well formatted and easy to read?
- Do you have spelling mistakes in your article?
- Is your article worth to share?
- Do you have too many ads on your blog as compared to content?
- Is your article very much helpful or just another article to get in Google result?
- Are you writing for Google or your readers?
- Are you doing too much keyword stuffing?
Read all the things listed above very carefully and have a look at your blog that you are following all or not?
Google just want one important thing from us and that is, “High quality article“. Keep writing the stuff so that people love to read and care to share your article with their friends.
