Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 18.104.22.168
I have a site that has THIN, THIN CONTENT. It ranks PERFECT. I have SPAM SITES and I have Quality Sites that PEOPLE LOVE.... yes, I mingle with darth vader with some properties. None of my sites have been hit by panda.
1)Yes, they are killing your website because you don't know how to do on page optimization.
Has anything changed w.r.t on page optimization after panda?
Seriously, are scrapers (dup content) killing you?
...they are killing your website because you don't know how to do on page optimization.
If a scraper with a backlink profile weaker than yours can really outrank you, then that's your fault.
A simple trick I picked up that puts scrapers to work for me was a change in my rss feeds that embeds a link to my site as well as my site written out in text (www.example.com) from the start of every post. Scrapers dislike my feed because of this but some still use it and Google does indeed count some of the incoming links as backlinks.
