Hi there, Everyone:
Were you hit by the March 23rd Panda update?
If so, have you made any changes to your site that led to any recovery?
There HAVE been Panda refreshes / updates since then, right?
I lost about 30% of traffic on March 23rd, and have yet to see a recovery. (I was also dinged by Penguin - or some other tweak that occurred on April 26th, not on the 24th of April.)
If you have any insights as to what exactly was the focus of the March 23rd Panda update, or any ideas on how to recover, please share them.
Thanks in advance.
I had a SMALL directory which was an adjunct to my site (not the main focus); We sell widgets, and we had a directory of about 100 places where you could take classes on making widgets. It wasn't paid, and it wasn't a reciprocal directory per se, but it did mention that we would appreciate a link back.
I have since noindexed that directory, but seen no recovery. Wondering if I should just get rid of it? The thing is, I think it actually added value to people who liked our products.
