3000 pages deindexed
750 pages left
With these 750 pages you have returned to 86% of what you did pre Panda.
- is this 86% of traffic from only what the 750 pages produced, which is now 20% of the site, or
- is it 86% of the original pre Panda traffic for the entire site
Close. Here are the accurate numbers:
3099 pages deindexed
561 pages left
With these 561 pages I have returned to 86% of what I did pre Panda.
- This is 86% of the original pre Panda traffic for the entire site
So if PrePanda was 100%, now I am at 86% of the PrePanda traffic. This level is produced by the 561 pages that are left. Hope that makes sense.
I agree that you don't just simply have to noindex your datafeed pages. Do take a look at what type of pages they are duped, blanks, thin, or even if not thin do they add value, etc. Also, in addition to noindex, follow many pages, these were not the only actions I took to fix the site but the OP addressed noindexing pages. I might also add, what is left, are the main pages that have content. I am now slowly adding the datafeed pages in being careful with what is added.
