Adam Atodl's curator insight, August 5, 2013 7:37 PM

This is a really useful visualization of the impact of Google's updates on your websites. It allows you to see at a glance which updates had most impact and why.

The basic (free) plan allows for the checking of two websites - if you want more than that you have to upgrade to the Pro version. 

Warning - the analysis of my main site had more red on it than the one shown above - and too many big red blobs really depresses me :-(

Google Penguin Worst Than Google Panda for SEOs?

Google Penguin Worst Than Google Panda for SEOs? | Google Penalty World | Scoop.it

Barry Schwartz reports on SearchEngineRoundtable: "About a month ago, we polled our readers asking how they were impacted by the Google Penguin update.


We have well over a 1,000 responses and I wanted to share them with you. Keep in mind, those who were negatively impacted are probably more likely to take the poll.


That being said, 65% said they were negatively impacted by Penguin, while only 13% said they were positively impacted.


This is way more than the Panda update where only 40% said they were negatively impacted by the Panda update."

Matt Cutts Announces Google Penguin 2.0 Algo Update: Check Your Stats | Google Penalty World | Scoop.it
Robin Good's insight:



Matt Cutts has officially announced on his blog the release of Penguin 2.0 algo update.


Barry Schwartz reports on Search Engine Land: "Webmasters and SEOs: expect major changes to the search results. Matt specifically said that 2.3% of English queries will be noticeably impacted by this update.


Cutts later posted some more details about this roll out on his blog.


He explained that the launch is now complete, including for non-English languages, and that “the scope of Penguin varies by language, e.g. languages with more webspam will see more impact.


Adam Morgan on Search Engine Journal: "This update will be more intensive than version 1 of Penguin and is specifically targeting black hat spam.


Spammers and black hat SEOs should be worried. If you’ve been focusing on quality content, the user, and haven’t participated in black hat techniques, you ‘need not fear’. :)"

a) PanguinTool


b) AlgoSleuth

Full Recovery Possible? Google Penguin Update and What To Do

Full Recovery Possible? Google Penguin Update and What To Do | Google Penalty World | Scoop.it

From the original article: "The good news, whether you were hit by Penguin the first time or this time, is that you can recover.


We’ve now seen that this can happen, and since we know that Google will continue to push data refreshes for Penguin, there should be plenty of chances to do so.


Just think about all the Panda refreshes we’ve seen since February 2011.


We recently reported on WPMU, a seemingly quality site with plenty of fans on social media channels, which got hit by the first Penguin update. The site has now made a full recovery."

Google Penguin or Google Panda? How To Find Out Which Algorithm Has Hit Your Website | Google Penalty World | Scoop.it

Robin Good: If you have been wondering whether you have been hit by one of Google recent algorithm updates (Google Panda and Google Penguin), this in-depth article by Glenn Gabe provides lots of valuable insight and specific advice on how to verify whether your site has been hit by an algo update and specifically by which one.

 

"Based on how Google rolled out Penguin and Panda recently, I’m finding it’s common for webmasters to be confused about which algorithm update hit their websites.


Penguin 1.0 and the latest Panda updates were so close that it’s easy to believe you were hit by one, when in fact, it could have been the other.


Use the techniques I listed in this post to help you determine which update really hit your site..."


Must-read. 9/10
