Google PandaIn the quest to bring more quality search results to its users, Google created a program that filters sites with articles that are not considered strong enough to help their users solve their problems. Becoming one of the most popular changes ever made in Google search algorithms, Google panda now ranks “low quality sites” low in search engine result pages and awards sites with “high quality content” better rankings.

You will want to make sure your blog is not hit by the Google panda update changes. If this should happen, it would definitely result in you losing a large percentage of your traffic which also means you are going to lose some good amount of money you could be making.

I have been wondering if there was a way I could know the stand of my weight watchers discounts and diet to go coupon blog on the changes made in Google’s SERPs. Below are a few among the many ways I have determined my success with Google panda.


Amount of Time Spent on Site

Google has so much successfully made the Google panda work like a human. It is able to read the reactions of your blog readers and judge the quality of your blog based on that. And one of the many aspects Google panda will look at when giving value to your blog is the amount of time your readers spend reading your blog.

If someone lands on a page on your blog through Google search results and they spend more time on your blog by reading other pages on it, it means they enjoy what you are providing on your blog.

Check the average time your readers spend reading your blog. Judge the quality of your content based on it and if you think you can improve it do so. If you think the quality provided on your blog is optimal, then keep it up.


Bounce Rate

Bounce rate is calculated according to the amount of people that land on your blog (mostly from search engines) and click the back button. It is somehow dangerous for you to have an increasing bounce rate on your blog. A blog with high bounce rate could otherwise be rated as a “low quality blog”, and Google panda will ensure that such blogs don’t rank well in search engines.

Work towards reducing your bounce rates. Study what makes your bounce rate go high by conducting a survey or by asking your readers to post in comments what would make them leave your blog at first sight.

Is it the headlines of your articles? Is it poor introductions? Is it the unwelcoming look of you blog’s design. Whichever of these is causing your blog’s bounce rate to go high, try to improve on it.


Number of Visited Pages

Another way to know the score Google panda would give your blog when looking for blogs that could be rated as high quality or low quality blogs is the number pages readers view when they come to your blog.

How do you make people keep reading other pages on your blog when they come to read your blog? You should already know the answer: make your blog posts interesting and informative – citing other good articles from big blogs will give your articles the feel of a well researched work. You should also link back to articles on your blog.


Conversion Rate

You strive to create a blog that will rank well in search engines and bring in reasonable amount of visitors that will read your blog posts and probably want to dip their hands in their wallets. If your blog is not converting well, it may result in Google panda rating your blog low. Google also ranks sites based on their conversion rates.

If writing the perfect sales copy is what your blog needs in order to boost your conversion rate then do it. If it’s promoting the right products that it needs, you should give your readers what will add value to them.

The way I see that my weight watchers discounts and diet to go coupons blog’s conversion rate is always increasing is by making my sales copy great and also making sure the products I promote are what my readers want.
