Google Panda still hammers Tech News Sites
 

The Google Panda Update continues to be a problem for Tech News Sites.

Google introduced a new ranking algorithm about 2 month ago. Last week the search gate keeper rolled out Panda to other English language regions around the world and tweaked Panda some more. For some reason Google totally ignores the issues Panda brings onto technology news sites like ours. Yesterday Ubergizmo saw the need to publish an in-depth report about their situation and how they constantly get outranked by scraper sites. I am pretty sure that Hubert Nguyen would rather report about the latest gadgets than writing a long article on how Google treats them. They describe the same issue we still have and reported about a couple weeks ago.

Getting outranked by sites that just publish a paragraph of your original story is hurts. I came to the conclusion though, that this is just evidence and not the root cause of losing almost all organic Google traffic. Google's Panda update seems to especially have a thing for tech news sites and classifies them as something bad. Any other site can outrank us with just a snippet of our original content.

As far as I know not a single site has recovered after being hit by the Google Panda update. There is just no way to replace organic search traffic with Bing and Yahoo!, despite the latest news that Bing is gaining market share. For some reason Bing users are not big in researching technology topics and gadgets.
