Happy New Year everyone, I wanted to start my 2012 thread with something which I see a lot of people are doing in few 1000+ markets we maintain and honestly a lot of our clients are also asking for this very solution.
Here is the thing, since the launch of Panda, it seems that once you are pandalized the chance are 0.1% that you will recover I have not found anyone so far that has recovered FULLY from Panda.
So if your XYZ.com got hit for "blue widgets" then chances are you will not get that spot back, HOWEVEVER!and let me repeat that again HOWEVER there is a way to get back that same position again BUY A NEW DOMAIN and START A NEW SITE on the same topic and build some links. You will be amazed how fast that site will rank.
Content can be same/different or SPUN it doesn't matter this new domain/website will rank faster for the term than your old authority/trustworthy site.
And I see a lot of people are applying this tactic now. It seems to be the best remedy.
Now my question is:
IS THIS GOOD FOR GOOGLE? This will start a whole new era of domain/website spam. Where you get hit by Panda and the only good solution is just start a new website all over again and build the links and you are good to go.
I mean if I was making $10k from xyz.com for "blue widgets" and I can get that same spot again within $2000 then why not?
It is sort of failure on Google's side to kill authority site but rank a new junk site right away.
So basically every time you get hit, start over again. I have tested this in a mid-tier niche for one of my affiliate sites and it is amazing how this works. My 10 years old domain with ugly HTML design and no ads is on 5th page but my new site is ranking #1.
Unless Google fixes Panda itself this NEW DOMAIN spam will continue.
