Aside from bamboo, I learned that Google Panda occasionally eat other grasses, wild tubers, or even meat in the form of birds, rodents or carrion, honey, eggs, fish, yams, shrub leaves, oranges, or bananas along with specially prepared feed.
I recognized him with his black and white cat-foot. I saw its large, distinctive black patches around the eyes, over the ears and across its round body. I thought if he saw me he would become wild but I was wrong. When he saw me he smiled at me and invited me to sit down beside him. What a beautiful morning it was! Google Panda was in good mood to talk to a stranger.
So I did not waste my time. I started our conversation with laughter and normal greetings. And then my short interview for him followed. For all the questions I stoned to him, he answered them directly to the point without any hesitations. He was smart, friendly and it made me comfortable. And for the record, the below is the recorded interview I made with Google Panda.
Pruelpo: For what purpose Google has recruited you early this year?
Google Panda: The purpose is mainly to give better search results. The change aims to lower the rank of “low quality content sites” in search results and return high-quality sites to its users.
Pruelpo: Did it show good results? What websites mostly were affected?
Google Panda: Yes. It has affected the rankings of all search results. News websites and Social Networking sites benefited for this changes – their rankings rise but a drop in rankings for Advertising sites.
Pruelpo: You mentioned earlier about low quality content sites – What advice you can suggest to the owners or to the publishers of those sites?
Google Panda: To get high ranking pages on search results those publishers should aspire to conceive those low quality contents to high quality contents for their sites. If those publishers are hosting individual content writers – they should encourage them to produce articles with high and good quality contents. Now Google has started spotting, tracking and indexing acknowledgment of contents created by the individual content creators with the websites they appear on through listing the author’s link.
Pruelpo: What advice you can suggest to the individual content creators to produce articles with good quality contents?
Google Panda: For the benefits of all writers, first of all, they should realize that online writing is different from writing on print media like newspapers and magazines. If writers wrote articles for online publication with good quality contents the Search Engine crawlers will always love to crawl down those articles and will keep them coming back a year round because they found them as quality provider of good contents.
Pruelpo: I see your points though still I need more clarifications. Could you please elaborate them?
Google Panda: Writers should avoid publishing anything that is not quality or original content. They should avoid mixing some lower quality stuff with that high quality stuff just to get number of articles to publish. Injecting non-unique contents on their articles could not attract Search Engine crawlers. They need a lot of good quality contents and need to post them frequently. Frequency is also important part of the process because it helps train crawlers to come to find the food to bite. Search Engines will be happy to see that writers are consistently feeding good quality contents for the crawlers.
Pruelpo: They sound good and very effective. Are there some more helpful tips that you can advice to writers other than those you mentioned a while ago?
Google Panda: Writers should write naturally with good English grammar. And they should avoid not to keyword stuff of their contents. If they write articles of 500, 1000 and above words long – they should pick a main keyword and put it in the title of the post. They should select a bunch of sub-phrase keywords that relate the primary keyword and use them on sub-headings and fill them in about 100 to 200 per sub-section. Or for every 100 words they write they should use the keyword only once. For a five hundred word article they would use keyword at least five times. However, they can also mix two or three other keywords into the article with the primary keyword. They can also use the primary keyword once in the closing paragraph of the article. And also they can create links in the content to other pages.
The interview with Google Panda was interesting, memorable and exciting one. Now I realize that it is not yet too late for us writers to write good quality content articles. Following Google Panda’s advice we can improve our writing capabilities. Let’s do it!
