How to Survive Google’s Panda Algorithm

In February 2011, Google launched a major change to its algorithm in an effort to punish low-quality sites, or according to Google, “sites which are low-value add for users, copy content from other websites or sites that are just not very useful.” Since then the new algorithm, dubbed Panda, has undergone about 20 tweaks, each time causing fear and panic in the search engine optimization industry. Why? Because if you get hit by Panda, you experience a drop in rankings.

Panda is by far the biggest change to Google’s algorithm, initially impacting 11.8 percent of its search results in the US.  So there’s a chance you were hit, or might be hit sometime in the near future. This is why many business owners seek the advice of experienced internet marketing agencies. SEO companies are experts in tracking and analyzing Google algorithm changes, especially major ones like Panda. And they know how to repair your site after such blows.

Panda isn’t all that bad though. In addition to punishing low-quality sites, the Panda algorithm is designed to reward high-quality sites with better rankings. According to Google, high-quality sites feature “original content and information, such as research, in-depth reports, thoughtful analysis and so on.” This is an example of another reason to hire an experienced SEO company with the skills to outfit your website with quality content using proper white hat SEO techniques.

If you’ve experienced a major drop in your rankings and don’t know why, consider hiring a professional SEO agency to find out for you. For a list of the best companies in the industry, please visit

TV viewers to benefit from new competition

Hit with the looming Apple and Google entry into the television market, major cable providers including Comcast, Time Warner Cable, Cox Communications, and Cablevision are dropping their old set-top boxes and replacing them with internet-connected devices that can access the Web with HTML5 standard.  This new cloud-based technology allows faster updates, much easier searches and more individual preferences to the customer.

After a year of testing, the largest U.S. cable company, Comcast, introduced its new internet-connected guide in Augusta, Georgia.  It plans to roll out the new guide known as X1 in five other major markets before the end of the year.  The X1 allows viewers to watch videos on television as well as laptops, smartphones, and tablets.  If the user is a Comcast phone and broadband service user, they can also view text, e-mails, voicemail, and appointments.  The U.S. third largest cable operator, Cox Communication, introduced a system called Trio, a more personalized user interface.  The Time Warner is expected to introduce cloud-based user interface next year.

The competition between tech companies and cable providers will be a benefit to the TV viewers.  It will allow them surf the Web while watching their favorite TV program.
