Why Haven't Sites Come Back from Panda?
During all this Pandalitis I have been experimenting with my example.co.uk and every product page is now back on the first page of the g.co.uk SERPs. I went through every titlebar, meta description and on-page stuff and where there were possibily any doubts as to what had been written, it was amended...these pages are now very focussed and their climb up through the SERPs has been interesting:-)
Also, during this Pandalisation I have been building a new site on a .eu extension. To be honest I stopped touching it a couple of weeks ago since I was so dismayed with what Google had done however I have been checking its SERPs today on both .com and .co.uk and its doing very well indeed, and also in image search I must add.
I have been constructing it the same way as my .co.uk site with all its new images, text, etc. and I'm impressed enough to start work on it again tomorrow and complete it over the next week or so.
Now a few things to note:
1. I am using my standard css template site I created 11/12 years ago.
2. My layout includes a 728 x 90 leaderboard and a 728 x 15 AdLink above the fold and a 336 x 280 at the bottom of every product page.
3. It is interlinked to my other example.tld sites through the lhs navigation on every page.
4. Panda did not impose this on me, I was going to build this site like this anyway therefore it's very interesting that it seemingly is having no problems...yet!
Oh, and none of the pages had a newbie boost, they've just steadily trundled their way upwards.
Does that help anyone?
