20th Avatar of Panda – Panda #20

As expected Google threw another fireball this time with a different name called panda 20 and with a major impact. Yes this is the 20th avatar of Panda since its first release on February 24, 2011.As so they named it as panda 20 switching from panda 4.0. Whatsoever…Google launches and we land along with it. Google officially released this update nine days after his previous update 3.9.2 i.e. on September 27.

This avatar is likely to score the largest update algorithm of 2012. An ever powerful Google update that had an impact on 2.4% of English search queries and yet more. Google announced that they released out a new Panda algorithm update that isn’t just a mere data refresh like the previous updates but an algorithm update. The complete rollout of this update is still in process and expected to live over 3-4 days. Much noticeable variation seemed on the release of this update and a lot more expected after its complete rollout.

Google puts the webmaster in trouble to identify the reason for their traffic loss as Google rolled out a separate algorithm the EMD update. It’s a great headache for some site to identify whether their sites are affected by EMD or panda.

Whatever it might be, it seems Google won’t stop releasing his panda avatars. So abide by the panda rules, stay cool and always be ready to watch the panda next avatar.

Save your New Site – Aware of Google Sandbox Effect!!

A New Website always faces the limitations of Sandbox effect. Your significant keywords lacks for good ranking in Google for months. It affects a good site even it occurs with lot many good inbound links, quality content. Sandbox is appreciable for spam sites which come up quickly with irrelevant information.  Also spam sites would use various strategies to mount to the top of the exploration results, and achieve heavy sales prior to being prohibited to go against Google Terms of Service.

Several SEO experts express sandbox a fake effect. Unless Google has highlighted recently that Sandbox filter is real. It filters newly developed websites who are pushing themselves to rank good enough with highly competitive keywords. You can be away from this effect unless you work with keywords of less – competition. Most over three months a new site will stay inside sandbox. Only one to six months is the maximum duration. If your site has a better PR and inbound links, and it shows up in search results for some secondary search keyword, but the site is nowhere to be initiated for the most essential explores, then it is very expected the site has been positioned in the Google Sandbox.

Easy link building Steps to increase your google page rank

Link Building sometimes can be tedious and boring at times. However, recent time it seems to be one of the most profitable activities of your business. Backlinks will increase your site popularity which will gradually increase your Google Page Rank. The majority of your Page Rank is determined only by the good backlinks.

A good content:
It is said that “Content is king”. The content plays a vital role in link building.
The content should be informative as well as interesting it should be more precise with proper and minimal usage of keywords.The information should be conveyed in a very simple method and mainly within few pages. Proper navigation within a page is also an important factor which should be considered. And therefore it should be a killer content.

Creating blogs
Do not just create a blog and dump it with useless posts. Blogs should be created out of passion. It is necessary to keep your blogs updated with all interesting and entertaining stuffs. Occasionally, you should link it back to your main website. This is also one of those link building strategy.This also helps your page to remain active.

Social bookmarking is necessary
Social bookmarking is not exactly creating backlinks however; it helps you to fetch significant links from social bookmarking sites of high page rank.

Getting permanent backlinks
The only thing that puts you off is that when your page is not ranking well. It’s common for all sites to drop off and lose your backlinks. If you buy links from any link services that require a monthly or annual subscription you run the risk of losing your links when you cancel. This will drop all your links and cause your search engine ranking to drop as well

Getting links from high Page Rank sites
Getting a link from a high page rank site will yield you more value than a link from a low page rank site. The home page URL carries more value and that’s why links from high PR sites are so sought after.

Use of proper anchor text
Use of proper anchor text is very important in building quality back links. Using your keywords as anchor text in your back links is a great way to add traffic to your keywords.

Avoid giving nofollow links
Most of the sites now have the “nofollow” tag which was actually introduced to deter spammers from posting random links everywhere. The nofollow tag means that a link will not be considered as a backlink, and thus do get links from nofollow sites they will be worthless from an SEO point of view.
