Why I Like The Google Panda Update
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Many people may very well have been slammed by the changes the mighty Google implemented. While it might have hurt their business, which is unfortunate perhaps they only have themselves to blame.

To start I don't like seeing people suffer and I'm not one to derive pleasure in other's misfortunes. But it has been said time and again that you must always be thinking of your customer first what information they want and give them good quality content. That's all Google did was to put their customers first. Any business that doesn't do that eventually fails.

Hard to think that Google could be over taken by someone else. But it does happen when a business gets too big they become arrogant and think their empire will rule their market for eternity.

And the reality is that Google is The Roman Empire of the internet. They rule the world wide web. Having a mere content farm was no longer acceptable to them. And that was their right to run their business as they see fit.

So why do I like the Panda update?

For one thing the challenge. It forces me to not take the easy way out and write something short (250 words) and then put in an affiliate link and get money.

It may be more work but the satisfaction that I was able to help someone with good information to solve a problem they're having. The bigger problems I solve the more money I make. Then I can go and use the money I make to accomplish another goal to eventually sponsoring ten children through World Vision Canada.

My writing is far from perfect, but I love writing and I keep doing it. As long as you keep pluging away with continued improvement you will eventually break through. Remember the line from Bruce Cockburn song "you gotta kick at the darkness until it bleeds daylight."

I could have ended this article here, or earlier, but how much good information can really be put in a 250 word article? When I was doing that on a different directory I always found that I could have written more.

With four hundred words it's still sometimes a challenge to get the minimum content in. Sometimes I get it quickly other times I don't.

I could always write some gibberish to get the minimum word content but then content as they say is king. Hopefully you weren't one of those slammed by Google algorithm change, but if you got hurt by the panda update you need to change how you do things and you'll find your way back to the top.

Thanks for that Ian. I happen to agree, there's a need for more quality rather than just chasing the dollars these days.
