While many of our sites are still struggling to recover from the original Panda update from early last year, a few have managed to buck the trend and not just return to their previous levels, but also start growing. One of those success stories is All-About-Car-Accidents.com.
Just like with DisabilitySecrets.com, we had to completely overhaul the site. We consolidated content down to the essentials, and made sure that those essentials were well written and useful for anyone visiting the site. The interesting thing about All-About-Car-Accidents is that it was flat for so long, then improved in the blink of an eye. Even DisabilitySecrets.com took months of constant growth before it got back to pre-Panda levels.
It’s also interesting to note that not only did Panda 3.5 seem to have a positive impact on AACA, but so did Penguin. That surely would not have been the case if we hadn’t done so much work to make AACA better.
The lesson here is that there is no lesson here! While we think we know the best way to go about getting back into Google’s good graces, the speed at which that happens seems to be a bit of a mystery. It is good to see that our hard work will pay off, even if we aren’t entirely sure when that will be.
At the very least, it’s keeping us on our toes!
