Lately I have gotten lot of requests from readers about google's panda algorithm change and its effect on site rankings. All the questions have just one theme, how can you make sure that your site's rankings in search engine stay at top. One of our site's was hit real hard with this algorithm change and traffic on the site took a nose dive. After making some tweaks and following some of the new guidelines google provided, I was able to recover site traffic quickly. So I thought I will share some of the experience with rest of the publishing world.
Based on guidance provided by google and my personal experience in recovery of search site ranking, here are some of the things you can do.
One of the things I have done on my blog is that I have created a separate page like "Announcements" where I list all the short content.
These are some guidelines you can start with. And then monitor your site's traffic for 2-3 weeks. Do not expect rankings to improve overnight.
