Folks, I have been reading a lot, thinking a lot and analyzing a lot. I am still not sure, how to get the US traffic back to pre-24th of February levels! But I think it is time to summarize the key theories of the algo change in the US:
- Internal links devalued, only external count really
- Thin pages cause substantial bigger problems for a domain
- Duplicate content snippets on your page cause substantial bigger problems
- Too many external named links "widget keyword" instead of "more..." (eg) cause penalties
are what kept me working in the past 4 weeks. Do you have some additional meme?
