Google Panda was first rolled out in February, 2011. Since then they have continued to roll out updated versions of the algorithm. The last one seems to have been updated on July 25th, 2012. There is a lot of discussion about this algorithm and many website owners are still trying to figure out what to do to get back their traffic. I am setting up this thread so that we can start collecting and posting links to articles and blog posts that can help people to figure out a way to get out of their situation with Google. When you find a GREAT article, please post it. I will collect the links and keep them in this "pinned" post so that when a person lands in this thread they can easily click on the links that leads them to the article. You will find a similar thread that is named Google Penguin Resource Center. Visit that thread for all things related to the Penguin update. I've come across this one post which is awesome. It was written in July, 2011, but seems to still be relevant to today's Panda updates. Google Panda update survival guide
Yes, we all know that Google has made some major changes to their search algorithm some time ago and many of us have heard some horror stories from other webmasters and even online marketers. These updates really hit article directory sites and other spamalicious content farms pretty hard. This has brought on some major changes on a host of huge content sites like Squidoo, Hubpages and others. Hubpages for one has changed all existing links and future ones to be placed on a subdomain for each user so that they spam will not be help responsible at the domain level and there are many other behind the scenes changes going on on many sites. This is just because many people don't want to get bit by the panda and there is a good reason. Take a look at these stats and see for yourself : http://www.pandalized.com/ The one way you can be sure not to have problems moving forward with your online marketing and promotion is to avoid sites that have been hit hard altogether or if you do still use them make sure you are only adding top quality content and do not add to the spam issue. If you are writing content, you need to make it worth reading, really add value in what you share and stay away from spam topics too. Building new content on site is also a must, Google is more interested in "instant" and "social" now more than anything.
