Google Panda Has Shunned Me

April 05, 2011 By: Nopy Category: Announcements

Those of you who run your own blogs may have heard about something called the Google Panda. From what I gather, it’s a new algorithm designed to improve Google’s search results. It works by bringing down the ranks of low-quality sites so that when you search for something like “anime”, you don’t get results that take you to a page selling memberships to “Hentai Key” or some other porn site. So what does this have to do with me? Well, 2 weeks ago I noticed a rapid decline in the amount of traffic Nopy’s Blog was getting, right around the time Panda was being implemented. Yes, I was Panda Slapped.

At the time I didn’t know what was going on, just that not as many people were visiting, so I decided to publish a post. On March 24 I decided to go with one of the staples of my blog, a Megami Magazine post. That helped stall the decline in traffic as you can see from the chart below. Unfortunately, visits continued to drop shortly after that.
