How To Recover from Google Panda Effect – Definite Guide

Google Panda was one of the most controversial algorithm update from Google, but with time it helped a lot to remove low-quality websites from search engine and overall it improved the quality of search results. Though for many webmasters, Google Panda updates are still a headache and at unknowingly many good websites lost their search engine ranking due to Panda penalty.  If you are one of those bloggers who lost their web site traffic after latest Google panda algorithm update roll out,  Here I will be sharing tested tips to recover from Google Panda.

Recover From Google Panda

Before we move ahead with panda recovery tips, I would like you to know Google Panda is a domain level penalty. What I mean is, if earlier you’ve had low-quality content, it was your content that was penalized, but now if you have low-quality content, your complete domain will be penalized. One of the simplest ways to get rid of Panda penalty is by getting rid of low-quality content. I will do a separate post for identifying low-quality posts but here I will give you a brief idea that will help you get started with the recovery process.

We all know that Google rolled out the Google Panda algo globally, and you might also have noticed many bloggers talking about a traffic increase or significant traffic drop. We always talk about SEO optimization of blog posts and since the Google Panda algorithm it’s become mandatory to do proper SEO on the site level and content level. In this post I will be talking about how to recover from Google Panda effect, and what you can do to better optimize your blog for the Google search engine, so that your blog will be bullet-proof from future Google Panda updates in 2015 and the coming years. Panda is just an algorithm iteration, and as Matt Cutt, mentioned, now sites will also get penalized for over SEO optimization. So, I would suggest avoiding any black hate SEO (If you are doing it), and focus more on quality content and increasing your site’s social media presence. In particular, Google+1 is going to be a holy grail for bloggers in the future.

Update: I have updated this article with new tips that I implemented on my websites and have seen good recovery over time. Here is a screenshot of the same.

Google panda recovery tips

Before I move ahead with Google Panda recovery tips, let me tell you something about ShoutMeLoud traffic. ShoutMeLoud was affected by the Google Panda algorithm, and the traffic drop was around 60%. I have always taken care of SEO, but at the initial days of blogging, when I was new to blogging, most of my content was short and of low quality. We will look into a couple more factors that lead to Panda penalty for this site and other sites in my network. One thing, in particular, Google Panda taught me was  about the importance of keywords, and why you need to have a target keyword in a post. Just for the info, in this process I recovered the traffic but as I mentioned, recovery was not 100%. Slowly it’s increasing, and by ranking for target keyword now I’m getting more targeted visitors.

As I mentioned above, Google Panda is a domain level penalty, so even a couple of bad content/posts can affect your overall blog ranking. The very first step you need to do is figure out thin content or content that doesn’t add much value. For example, in the initial days of my blogging, I usually wrote posts with 30-50 words with one image and a link. Something, which I can say doesn’t add much value to readers. I guess, this is the same dilemma with others too.

Often I found out I had much low-quality contents, thereby, I had a couple of choices: no-index them, delete them or update them with detailed information to make it a quality content, so that it would be helpful and useful to readers.

Anyways, before you find out more about recovering from the Google Panda algorithm change, first understand what kind of website Google Panda is going to affect.

  • A website with low quality (Thin content)
  • A website that works as content farm
  • A website with useless pages indexed in Google (Same as content farm)
  • A website with improper SEO structure
  • Duplicate content (On-site and off-site)
  • Too many advertisements
  • Poor grammar
  • Slow site loading time
  • SEO over-optimization (Black hat SEO)

One easy way to find out if your site traffic drop is the result of Panda or something else is by analyzing traffic drop dates and matching it with the Panda update dates here

Here are some of the most common reasons for Panda penalty:

  • Low-quality content: Too short, not well researched.
  • Poor grammar (Still working on it) Sigh!
  • Ad/content ratio
  • Too many broken links (404 links)
  • Less CTR from Search engines (Poor meta title, weak meta description)

There could be other factors, but these are something that needed instant attention. Most of the broken links and redirects were quickly fixed by the Broken link checker WordPress plugin.

Now before we move ahead, here are some factors you should know about Google panda:

  • It’s a domain level penalty.
  • A few low-quality posts can drop overall domain ranking.
  • Google trust quality sites.
  • Google Panda lowers down overall ranking of low-quality sites.
  • On-site SEO optimization becomes important.
  • The quality of a post is taken as a prime factor for ranking.
  • Niche based websites are better than generic sites.
So let me be honest. There is no way to get 100% of your traffic back by keeping the same content, but with a good strategy you can recover from Panda penalty and drive more traffic than what you had.

How to find out if the Google Panda algo affected your website?

This is the first thing that you should be doing as webmaster. The recent Panda update was rolled out on 23rd September 2014, go to your analytics and see the graphs for the date mentioned above and compare it with last 10 days. If you see a significant drop or rise in traffic, that means your website is getting the hiccups of the Google Panda effect. You can also use this link to sign up for a free-trial account of SEMRUSH, and there you can see the increase or decrease in your keyword ranking. (See below screenshot)

ShoutMeLoud traffic graph Panda

So if you are one of those who are seeing an increase in traffic, it’s time to take a break! Grab a coffee or have gala time with your friends. But if you are one of those who were affected by the Panda effect, I suggest reading this post seriously, as you need to work really hard to recover from Panda effect.

Steps to recover from Google Panda updates:

Write quality content:

I’m sure you’re tired of being told “Write quality content and traffic will follow you”. When I say write quality content, it means write a complete post along with targeted keywords. Your post should be optimized for certain keywords and should not be just a random post. A quality post written without any targeted keywords is a useless post. You might get praise and lots of appreciation, but people won’t be able to find it in the search engine after some time.

Google takes quality and length very seriously and there are certain things which you should keep in mind including the word count of your blog post. For example, a post like “How to recover from Google Panda” can be written in 5 simple steps, or could be written in detailed how-to guide like this. Now, we know which one a reader would prefer, but what about a search engine? When you write a detailed article, you cover more keywords and especially you add more information into your post. According to an SEO debunked study, articles with longer length ranks fairly well. I have even tested and verified this after I optimized many old blog posts.

LSI words:

Here is food of thought: How do you think a search engine rank a content? Search engines uses algorithms to decide post ranking. How do you think a search engine will give you exact results for your search query? Here is where LSI words comes into picture, which helps search engines to understand exact categories for your article. Along with that, you use bold, italics, Keyword in H1, H2 and H3 tag to make your content more search engine targeted. You should maintain a certain ratio for Keywords density. I know it all sounds hard but look at the screenshot below.

Panda recovered Blog

I use a Premium plugin call SEOPressor to optimize my blog posts. To avoid over optimization, I usually keep the optimization ratio around 70%, and it’s working great for me. Here is the search engine position of one of the post after using this plugin:

There are many other similar SEO plugin like this available:  Prefer using a plugin that gives you on-page SEO score and keyword density score. This will certainly help in long run.

Remove unnecessary pages/posts from Google search:


The very first step is to see what all pages or  posts are part of Google, search from your domain. In the past, it was good to have more indexed pages but now it’s important to have only important pages and posts. Useless posts or pages just becomes a part of search engine and doesn’t add values.

Especially if you have your tags indexed in Google, you might like to no index it, as Tags and categories doesn’t help search engine much. Imagine you used 6 tags within a post and have written 100 posts. 100*6 =600 tags (Assumption) and now your tags are indexed in Google, imagine 600 low-quality pages being a part of search engine, which will make your blog look like content farm or at least website with low-quality content. Same goes with contact pages, disclaimer, privacy policy, newsletter page, which doesn’t add much value to the search engine. You might like to use noindex tag for such links. You can search all indexed pages for your domain by typing Site:Yourdomain in

Don’t forget to go to the last page and click on show omitted results. As Google put possible duplicate and low quality content from any domain under 2nd tier results.

You can use plugin like Meta robots WordPress SEO Plugin to make your category/tags/date archive pages as noindex. Another tip which you should keep in mind: Always keep your internal links as Dofollow. Google suggests you to use noindex tag when you don’t want bots to index any page/post and Robots.txt to stop crawling admin and private part of a website.


You can do a quick search in Google with “” to find out what all pages are indexed in Google from your domain. Replace with real domain name.

If your blog wp-content and wp-admin links are indexed in Google, simply use Google Webmaster URL removal tool and get rid of the complete directory. Make sure to add those directories into your Robots.txt file.

Remove Low quality content:

Now in the past you might have written posts which are not well written, very short or may be not targeted. Google is taking low quality content very seriously and therefore you should start working on your old low quality posts and convert them into high quality article. At least work on SEO details and length of the article. This will also help you in internal linking of your old posts with new one. Personally every day, I spend 1-2 hour to work on old posts and make them better. Even if you are not hit by Panda effect, you should do it to make your blog look better and give more quality to your readers.

Now the most common question would be what is low quality content. There is no 100% guide for low quality content, but here are some guidelines for the same:

  • Is it useful for readers?
  • Is it well researched?
  • Is content comes from a trustable source?
  • How likely customer is willing to give credit card details?

And many more other factors. But for now, here are my brief guide to find low quality content on your site:

  • In Google analytic, find all posts which got <10 visits in 2 months time. Now analyze content of the post and see if it’s useful and relevant.  Depending upon the post, you can update or delete or noindex it.
  • Find all articles with no Google traffic & optimize it.
  • Find all posts that are giving bounce rate higher than 85%. Work on them to lower down bounce rate. You can use these techniques to improve the bounce rate.
  • Install Admin word count WordPress plugin and analyze traffic of posts with word count <250. Take appropriate action depending upon the post.

Duplicate content:

Google takes duplicate content seriously even if it’s on your domain or cross posted on other site. Too many duplicate content will affect your search engine presence for sure. Work on each and every detail  of your site structure and SEO and make sure you are not serving any duplicate content. As I mentioned above, Google takes plagiarism seriously but the algo is not mature to really figure out difference between original and copied content, you need to work manually to fight against plagiarism. Also make sure you are using URL canonicalization.

Though Google claims that their new Content farm algo is perfect to fight against Auto RSS content generation blog but to be honest I really doubt it. Specially for CallingAllgeeks, , I have seen many auto blogs are copying content but they are ranking better than original article itself. More over because of this, many posts are getting deindexed from web search. The only solution to this is a fight against plagiarism.

You should taking plagiarism seriously and as soon as you see any website copying your content, you can report it to Google team. Initially I used to ignore such blogs which used to copy content, but these days I actively report them to Google and so far in last 15 days, I have put request to remove 50+ such pages from Google index and from BlogSpot. So far 75% of my request has been successfully reviewed and copied URL’s are removed from Google. You should straight away file a DMCA notice or ask the webmaster to remove the content instantly. Missing this point will create post duplication issue, and more over you might see other site is stealing your hard work and traffic.

Bonus tip: When you find out all your low quality content, find all copied posts using these online Anti plagiarism tools and report it to Google. I have seen many of such posts started getting traffic, once all copied content are removed.

Learn SEO:

If you are into professional blogging  or planning to take blogging as career, you should learn SEO first. Without SEO, your future will remain unpredictable, as one major algo change can take away everything from you. Once you know basics of SEO, you can be ready for any algo changes and tweak your website to meet new changes. Here are few things which you should start with:

SEO friendly WordPress Theme:

I have started my blogging career with free WordPress themes but with time I realized premium WordPress themes are way better than free WordPress theme. If you are using a free WordPress theme, you should check your theme for proper heading tags and if this theme is SEO friendly or not. Or else, make your life simpler and use Genesis theme. Especially, if you are not much of SEO guy, you can install these theme and make your blog more SEO friendly. Make sure you put noindex attributes for tabs, categories and all useless pages using Thesis options panel or Genesis option panel. If you still can’t afford premium themes, I would suggest you to start using plugins like Robots meta to add noindex to all useless pages of your blog.

Social media promotion:

Alright, this is something which I’m sure many of you must be missing and believe me social media promotion really helps. Eespecially Google+ votes, Facebook likes, Twitter and Delicious worked for me great time to boost my ranking. Though Twitter helps in faster indexing and that’s it.

You can always start with social media promotion by creating own group on Facebook or on IM. Else, you can hire any 3rd party sites which offer such services. I have optimized my old posts for specific Keyword and then promoting them into these social media sites. I can see huge ranking improvement and you can try the same for any of your blog post too.

External links:

If you are one of those who are selling paid links or doing paid reviews about anything, you should stop doing it. Linking to bad neighbourhood will significantly make difference in your search engine ranking. If for any reason you need to link to any bad site, use nofollow attributes. Same goes for an affiliate URL. Though Google doesn’t give much weight to nofollow attributes, but it does make a difference. It’s a myth that too many external links will affect your ranking, if you are linking to legit and useful content it’s ranking will not go down or will not be affected. So you have to take an extra precaution when you are linking to other sites, especially if you are running a multi-author blog, you should make sure that link or guest post is coming from bloggers in the similar or relevant niche.

MFA or Affiliate blog:

If you run a money-making online blog, you’re probably  using lots of ads and affiliate links. Top contributors on a Webmaster forum have said that too many ads on a page give  out a signal of a low quality website. Also if you run a blog for affiliate marketing with less original content, you are more likely to be affected by this algorithm. You should try to use fewer ads on a page, and eespecially no ads in between a post. Also for affiliate links, strictly use nofollow links.

How to put reconsideration request after SEO change?

So you got affected by Google panda and your traffic dropped. I hope by now, you have made the changes on your blog, now to make it more search engine friendly get rid of low quality pages. Once you are done with all the essential changes, it’s time to login to webmaster tool and put a reconsideration request. Though it takes time but it’s the best thing which you can do now. Here is the link to reconsideration page of Google. Though, in most of the cases you will get a reply from Google saying your site is not penalized and there is no penalty, as new Panda algorithm is not a penalty but a new way to rank website in search engine.

Bonus tip: 

If in search meta description your date is showing, chances are high you will get very low CTR for old ever green post. I have removed post date from 2 of my websites and I could see improved CTR. More over, one of tech blog which was badly hurt recovered really fast after date removal from search snippets. Also if you are running a review site, like a gadget review, make sure to install GD star rating plugin and enable star rating. This will again help in improved CTR from Google search. Needless, to mention Google authorship, which is going to make everything very social.


Following changes worked for me to recover from Google panda effect:

  • Removed data from search engine snippets
  • Removed all Broken links
  • Removed un-necessary pages from search (Noindex or 404)
  • Keyword optimization for all old posts (Improved the quality with updated info)
  • Social media promotion after Keyword optimization (Google+, Delicious, Digg)
  • Removed duplicate content
  • URL Canonicalization ( replytocom, feedburner links)
Apart from all the above, I have also taken care of more SEO optimization on-site and backlink building. Moreover, my backlink building was more targeted for internal pages instead of just homepage. I’m not sure if ads actually helps to lower down panda effect because I have seen many site with above average ad/content ratio ranking fairly well. Keyword targeting is must and highly recommended post panda.

Thoughts about Panda:

If you have read the Matt’s interview regarding farmer algorithm, you must have noticed his statement in which he said “Google’s most recent algorithm contains signals that can be gamed”. In simple words, this means you can optimize your site to take full advantage of the Google Panda algorithm.

One thing that everyone should remember is that Google doesn’t update site manually. It’s only a set of algorithms which follow certain rules. If you are following guidelines, there is no way that your site will be affected by any algorithm change. It is now becoming an essential for every blogger to know SEO basics.

If you were affected by the Panda algorithm and are trying to recover, follow all the above steps. It might take some time before Google will re-crawl and re-index your website, but once it does, you might get lucky and get back your lost traffic.

Update: You can hire me for personal SEO coaching and consulting, in which I will review your site and will help you to recover it from panda updates. You can find more details here.

    Well, First of all, it’s not an easy task to get to know, whether our blog is penalized or not, unless, we are experience. I faced the same problem, when i started my career, that time, one of my blog got penalized due to low quality content, but I continued working on it, without knowing that it was penalized, but with experience, I recovered that blog perfect and it started ranking well on Google after the recent Panda Refresh. But, One thing I should say, recovering from Panda or Penguin can take some time, considering how much low quality content we have on our site, so it took few months for me. So, I will advice to all those who are looking recover their blog Google penalty, work smartly and keep patience. It’s the best way to do so. Btw, a very well written Post. Cheers.

    Great post!
    What do you think about news sites, for example apple news sites.
    When new app for IOS gets released all of the sites copy and paste description from apple itunes application page. They don’t even spin description. They also use the same images, yet none of the sites gets penalized for this. In most cases they have less than 300 words.
    Any idea why panda is not affecting them?

  13. Mandy says

    I’d like to start off say, thanks for taking the time to write such a detailed guide to beating Panda.
    I’m a little confused why you mention filing a reconsideration request when you say that Panda is not a penalty but an algo. Now that Webmaster Tools has a manual action viewer, I’m not sure why you’d fill out a request.

    Sorry if my question is something obvious…

  14. Mehul Boricha says

    Hello Harsh, As you have said I have completed all the steps and done my best to recover from Google panda effect. Still I have one question. Should I noindex attachements also or not. Please help.

  15. Yogesh says

    Dear Harsh,

    It is always good to see your articles, this in fact I found most useful, particularly for me. I have been reading all the important articles of yours since I got interest in this field (above 2 years).

    One thing I am unable to understand, few websites, that provide poor quality contents (you even can’t understand what they are trying to inform) and done plethora of keyword stuffing are still doing good even after numerous updates by Google. Also, few sites I have came across who have gained excellent ranking immediate after their launch. One reached its Alexa ranking 70K just in 2-3 months. How they are doing so? Is there any trick?

  16. Sneha says

    Hi harsh,

    I really appreciate your work. This is my first time on your blog and i must say, you are doing a fantastic job.

    I have one very important question if you can answer me please. See i have a blog in which earlier the permalinks were in the form of then i changed it to till that time i thought the url will redirect themselves which didn’t happened and i then used “Redirection” plugin to manually redirect all the posts and feeds, which ultimately caused too many redirects and hence my blog is suffering from the panda penalty. i want your help on this matter. please tell me how can I get rid of the same?

  17. Sourav says

    Excellent Article ! Probably, I among the best article I’ve read recently. One main thing to focus is to build content that users would love and not Google. Many people write for Search Engine and not for readers. The focus should be only on high-value content. With the introduction of Panda updates, now it is the right time to pay attention to quality content that is written with the audience in mind.

    And Seriously , Bloggers need to be more focused while selecting a theme. No body care to visit a site that looks cheap and tacky. A professionally , truth-worthy looking site with quality content is always safe.

    Great one Harsh, as usual :) Keep writing !

  18. Eric Lancheres says

    Hello Harsh!

    I was just reading your analysis and I can sympathize with all the work you’ve done! I have been recovering hundreds of Panda sites (can you believe it’s been out for 3 years already? time flies) and now that we have so much more information regarding the penalty, it’s fun to look back and see what we did right.

    From your list, I can tell that removing the low quality pages from search was quite important (because Panda’s a site-wide penalty that measures the quality of all pages.. so if you have 1000 thin tag pages, you’ll be in trouble) and I love that you went back to redo some keyword optimization for all your old posts.

    This has a two fold effect… first, it updates the ‘last modified’ of your posts so Google sees it as fresh content (yay) but more importantly, it helps a lot with the overall user experience of the site. I laugh when I remember our old titles being short keywords (“how to lose fat”) and I’m glad we have now migrated to more realistic (and appealing) titles such as “Dr. Harsh teaches you 5 ways to lose some belly fat over the holidays” (hehe)

    That’s because Google started measuring the click through rate and how many users want to come to your site (user engagement… this includes how many people search for your site, how long they stay on it, Google source: ). This is one of the reasons why your social media campaign probably helped as well!

    I’d love to know how your site’s doing these days!

  19. Rohit Mittal says

  20. says

    Hi Harsh, What method you have used to remove all broken links from your site? I think my blog has been affected by google panda on last update. I found lots of broken links on my blog but I don’t know how to remove these. Please help me out How I can do that?

  21. says

    Great and in depth post I have read so far on recovering from Google panda updates. I think my blog was also hit by panda and I am working hard to recover from it. My question is how long did it took you to come back to the original traffic.?


    Hi Harsh ,

    First of all thanks for sharing this valuable information with us .This article on panda is very well written and it explained everything to the core.

    I have read 60 % of your blog content till now , and i have just one word , that this blog is amazing and it helped me a lot .


  23. Kuldeep says

    my site also faced google panda affect and the result in 70% fall in traffic. There is no any broken links on my site. I used noindex tags,categories and all. My site have quality content and more lengthy articles. What should i do for this penalty please help me out.

  24. Amandeep Singh says

    Hey Harsh,

    Thanks a lot for a complete guide on recovery from Panda. Slowly and gradually, one of my sites has lost around 70% of the traffic and all declines are not matching with the Panda release dates. Not sure, if that is the exact issue. I have got a few doubts if you could please help me.

    – I checked the results for my site in Google and noticed some urls which shouldn’t be indexed at all like affiliate links, archives, etc… I have already dis-allowed them in the robots.txt file and as I use thesis, I have also de-indexed them from the options.. do you suggest me removing these directories from within Webmaster tool?

    – For keyword research and optimization, I know SEOpressor is a great tool as I have seen you recommending it lot of times.. is there any other online tool / plugin (not premium) which can do the job, not as good as SEOP would do but is there any you could recommend?

    A suggestion to make a change in Nutshell section “Removed data from search engine snippets” – it should be removed date… :)


  25. Vikram Rout says

    I lost my 50% tariff from new update of panada and my site is very new just one and half month old. Kindly suggeste me what I will do to recover from this problem. I am very worried about it. I am waiting for your suggestion.

  26. Mrinal says

    I can say Harsh… This is one of the best SEO and Panda article ever written by an Indian. Most of them are nasty telling same things and no useful contents.

    I will read this one again while SEO’ing my blog. Bookmarked!!!


  27. Chiranjeev says

    Hi Harsh,
    I have a blog where I post mostly about educations. I was usually getting huge traffic and My post often indexed on the first page. But, since some some days.. Yeah my post indexed quickly but it’s not even in the 5th page of search result, That is why traffic too has dropped.

  28. Ravan says

    Panther Update:

    In fight between G’s black and white animal updates panda and penguin updates some of our fellow webmasters seems to be failing, their incomes are getting affected, it is time to fight back, it is time to hit G where it hurts.

    One major issue webmasters are facing is G is sending us non-converting traffic, and sending converting traffic to their advertisers. What if we can simply apply this rule in reverse send the hands that feeds G lots of non converting traffic that will totally confuse them make their matrix go haywire.

    Let us unleash -Black Panther- on panda and penguin – bite the high paying adwords the hand that feeds panda and penguin – yes click on the ads go to advertisers websites browse around as a normal surfer will do click links with minimum 40 seconds gap browse 4-5 pages totally mess up their matrix. If you have a dynamic IP do this 2-3 times a day if enough panda/penguin affected webmasters do this it will hurt G where it really pains.

    Do unto G what G does to us – Black Panther bites the hands that feeds panda/penguin send them tons of non converting traffic, mess up their matrix – shhhh don’t tell anyone.

    This is a very nice post, no questions. But what Google doesn’t make any sense to me. It ranked my “disclosure policy” page (absolutely no SEO there) with rank 1. But my oldest, nicely written, SEO optimized, original articles got just rank 0. ???

      Ranking for what keywords, that is the question you should be asking. If your site is not being indexed check the Google Search Console for crawl errors or algorithmic/manual penalties.
