my sites that got hit by panda deserved it, and they deserved the recovery they got as well.
sweating on the next update, to see how the next 2 sites i have revamped fair.
I have programmed the following.
a. If page less than 2000 characters of content(after ignoring navigation, ads, excerpts from other pages etc) then no index no follow and record that page needs expanding If its an important navigation page, then no index, follow.
b. If search of google for first 255 characters of 1st, 2nd or 3rd paragraph does not return my page in google as the top result, no index no follow, and report - probably its a dupe content issue either where i have 'borrowed' some content, or someone has borrowed it from me.
c. All adsense blocks now conditional. If 2000+ characters, then show 3 adsense blocks, if only 1200 then show 2, if 600 then 1.
None of the programming was difficult but DAMN is it effective in telling me where my
pages are and what i need to do to fix it.
Anyone who thinks they were wongly pandalised, program and run the above tests.
I bet, you fail.
