Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
Interesting read, dvduval - thanks for sharing. Do you believe your site has good SEO, or at least is search engine-friendly?
just a thought - some were 'hit' by panda - lost business, etc... - and loads of posts here on WW about it. BUT someone got those 'sweet' spots on rankings and making a happy living now - but we dont hear much about 'postpanda' success stories. Anyone to shear?
Thanks for sharing your story, actually its a lesson thought by Google to us Not to rely on them. They just cannot see how many webmaster are relying on Google.
BUT someone got those 'sweet' spots on rankings and making a happy living now - but we dont hear much about 'postpanda' success stories. Anyone to shear?
In my case, most of my ecom channels enjoy major top spots for related keywords BUT they simply get very bad traffic. Large numbers but very low conversions lately.
The hardest thing over the years has been to keep the link-builders at bay.
We've used every method we can imagine (including constant human review) to weed out the link-builders, and I'm certain that our site is cleaner than the vast majority of similar sites, but that's apparently not good enough.
So how have you overcome Panda?
Within a week, I had given notice to all of my 10 employees that they were about to lose their jobs
Talk about a house made of cards - you were hardly in it for the long haul were you, where were your cash reserves, backup plans ect.
...your business sounds like it was a juicy panda target.
So how have you overcome Panda? Forget about redesigns and quality content. None of us really knows if that has anything to do with the bashful bear. Outside of SEO, what have you don't to cope with the raccoon-like carnivore in the past year?
