Dealing With the Aftermath of Google Panda Update Version 2.2

Friday, July 22nd, 2011

In February 24, 2011 Google introduced its new method for evaluating the quality of a website. Google Panda or “The Panda Algorithm” affected a little under 12% of search results and drastically reduced page visitors for many websites. At first 12% may seem like a small percentage but when considering the size of internet the figure becomes fairly significant. Google released Panda 2.0 in April and followed with version 2.1 in May.

A really Quick look at Google PageRank

Tuesday, November 3rd, 2009

Votes cast by pages that are themselves “important” weigh more heavily and help to make other pages “important.”( page rank A really Quick look at Google PageRank


0 to 2 = Below Average

3 to 5 = Average                 example:

6 to 7 = Above Average     example:

8 to 10 = Elite                     example:

If you are not aware there is a simple Firefox plugin called WebRank Toolbar ( which seems pretty cool. Every website you visit is given a Google page rank rating instantly when you visit it.

Additionally, Alexa, Compete, Quantcast rankings are listed with the number of links in Google, Yahoo, and Bing.
