Looking beyond what myself and others have experienced with this round of poison cocktails, what's the plan now?
I'm just curious who's up for rolling up their sleeves and getting dirty and fixing up what they have so that they can beat this dang thing? I say part in jest, part serious.
Because of this poison cocktail, certainly I'm dead fast against touching these affected sites again. That said, if there is optimism about pulling out of another crisis I'm all ears. If you could pull out of this update, create a website and or write a book about it!
In essence this update has helped me in a weird way. I'm going to change strategies to insulate myself from this ever happening again. If an algo update can do this to my enterprise, then yikes, what the heck am I doing with my time. I think the moral of this Panda update is to realize that what you have which wasn't affected this time, could very well be up next time. In which case, it's time to decide where your time is best spent. Chase a pot of gold, or latch onto a different means of getting people to your wonderful content.
Again, I'll avoid posting other than if I'm waking up to amazing turn arounds. Heck it's happened before, but those were the result of fixing penalties, not Panda algo updates.
There are two different audiences. One has a staff and big website(s) and the other is like myself who is a website enthusiast who thought of making some side income on doing what I love. I'm not so sure the income part of it is part of the equation. For me folks, that's Panda 20. It's historical in my life and I'll leave it at that.
In closing, let's talk strategies and next generation SEO so we can battle back and fight another day...
