edit.. this post was in reply to ScubaAddict ( many here type faster than I can In English on this French keyboard ;-)..
SocietyRoyalle has posted again since and cleared up and reinforced what I suspected to be the case ..content to ads ratio greatly improved ( cutting URLs will do that ) and content quality improved..
(s)he ? did so by increasing the amount and the quality of the original content on the site and per page..
I'm not going to quote all the paragraphs but virtually the entire post just above my previous one.. by SocietyRoyalle testifies to a vast improvement in quality ..and in the ratio of content to ads ( which is why my comment about (s)he not believing ad % and placement was a factor ..it is not the only one.. but it is major ) ..the other major factor is "genuine quality"..so many times people tell us about their ""quality writers ..or they "buy quality articles" ..this is a rare find ..someone who writes their own ( now ....as opposed to copy and pasting previously ) ..(s)he actually contacts people and does journalism ..
Most here who have been hit by panda and think that they should now be reinstated merely respin what they had previously spun or copied..or pay another cheap writer to write yet more crap ..and then nudge an ad or two around ..but leave the overall quality and placement the same ..
Like merely shuffling the deckchairs ( and making a lot of noise about how busily they were doing it and what hard work it was ) on the Titanic would have stopped it sinking..
Many here have been doing just that since the first panda..whilst deluding themselves and apparently attempting to delude others that they were genuinely surprised at the lack of results of their "fixing up their sites"..
SocietyRoyalle appears to have actually made real efforts on both fronts..and began bailing out the ship and moving the emphasis in ways that count..and so is coming back up..and views it as a process they need to continue.
