Why would you want to wait 6months-1year for your site to get back its position when you can get a new site ranked within 2 months? I see this happen everyday. Niches we track the top 100 sites are pretty much same content just different domain names. Same design/same content/same stuff/ same 3 leaderboard ads on the top and such.
I wish I was in touch with Matt Cutts or Panda the guy who came up with this idea. They have created more JUNK/SPAM than ever before.
We have tried everything with our 10years+ old sites but none came back and guess who is ranking #1 on top right now?
Few guys from India that are spamming Google at large scale:
same 3 adsense leaderboard ads
same freaking thesis theme (with same layout)
same junk content written by someone without any idea about the topic
same stolen images from our sites or others
same footer links across every site
same spammy profile links, hidden links, hack links
Every time they got hit with Panda they started new sites and again they are ranking on top. Currently for some keywords the top 10 results are 4-5 of their own website the rest are legit sites.
I have no idea, but I see stolen/rewritten content still ranking. If copied content is not ranking then just have someone write another 500 words article on the topic and you will rank. You may get pandalized again and again but at least you know that your new domain will rank rather than your pandalized one.
Thank you so very much your feedback, indeed G has messed up things with their Panda Madness..
And yes small sites with 4-5 pages and lots of media and dynamic stuff seem to get passed by Panda, however if you have a big site then YES you are asking to be nuked by G.
I have seen similar cases.
Indeed that is where it is going, they have started a new ERA of spam.
For past 15 years I have seen it all my friend. Like I said only if I were friends with Matt and Panda guy to show them what on earth is happening currently. I guess it will continue unless we know what on earth is "QUALITY CONTENT" to Google.
