I seriously wish that google (panda in particular) screws wheel's and netmeg's sites, so we will then be able to learn how they go about tackling them. Seriously. Their sites need to be kissed by panda for the benefit of webmasters.
Not going to happen - I'm not going to get panda'd Sorry, you don't want to hear it,but it's true. I built my site with an eye to being algo proof. I have diverse but relevant backlinks and strong content.Everyone gets whiney about that, but it's true. And it's working, which seems like it's great for me, but somehow some people seem to take as bad for them.
Besides, I already explicitly posted what to do. Twice. And nobody listened. So here it is the third time.
Blow off the panda'd site and start work (cleanly) on a secondary backup site that you have waiting in the wings. (note: make sure you have backup sites at all times).
Aside: Having multiple secondary sites is an aspect of being algo proof. I could get hammered by Google - I'd be stunned if it happened, but it's outside my control. So I've got numerous discrete sites for that eventuality.
Instead, most people are waiting for some technical solution. ***That's probably the attitude that got you panda'd in the first place. While you're sitting here complaining about people that didn't get penalized and following them, and counting your losses, you could've had 2-3 months towards working on your next site. Nobody wants to believe that their site got slapped because it had weak backlinks and thin content. Yet that's the entire purpose of the latest algo wasn't it?
Whatever, I suspect I'm talking to a wall. We've had these posts before and all that comes from it is that I appear arrogant and condescending. Shrug.
