Is Your SEO Content in Line with Google Panda’s June 2011 Quality Update?

If you’ve been following this blog, then the new SEO content rules put into place after the latest update of  the Panda system at Google shouldn’t faze you in the slightest.  You’ve already known that quality is key to great ranks!  It shouldn’t come as any news to you that if you want to keep your position high in the search results, you couldn’t just toss keywords around and create hundreds of worthless pages.

On the other hand, if you’re the owner of one in ten website online (and you haven’t been following the JBC Online writing services blog) you were just hit by a tremendous surprise as the SEO rules you’d been following turned upside down.

Google Panda is out for quality, and its latest algorithm is weeding out the fake traffic and irrelevant search results and is rewarding the websites that have made an effort to provide their visitors with fresh, interesting, relevant, and useful content.

The page rank rules have changed, and unless you’ve been using the methods that have been outlined since the start of this blog, you might be among the 10 percent of website that were affected by these most recent changes.

All of the sites that have been working to trick the search engine’s algorithms and have used content farms to fill space with poorly written, keyword-spammed pages are now sliding down the ranks as though they were on ice.

Equally, the sites that have been legitimately creating value over time and that have been continuing to update their content to bring their readers something that is truly worthwhile have been rewarded with the top ranks that they deserve.

Don’t panic.  It is still possible to create good quality content that has been search engine optimized.  Keywords are still just as important as they’ve always been.  But it’s important that they be integrated into something that will keep the reader interested.

The algorithm has now factored issues such as time into the mix.  The more time a reader spends on the page, the more valuable the crawlers will believe it to be. After all, it suggests that a site may have SEO content, but it also has information that is interesting enough for the site user to spend some time reading, or a video that the visitor would like to see.

If you have been using old keyword optimization methods and have been posting regular low-quality content on your site to maintain your rank under the old structure, then you are now facing a scramble.  You’ve lost your rank.  That said, it’s not too late to get it back.  Have your content replaced and start right now.

Because you will need a lot of steady, regular, high-quality optimized content to post, the best idea is for you to hire a professional SEO online writing services company that is aware of the latest optimization techniques and requirements and is capable of providing you with the type of articles, blogs, and social media posts that you need to recover your top position.

The sooner you get started, the sooner you’ll appeal to the crawlers again and climb your way back to the first rank once more.
