Time taken : 45-60 Minutes
Is it expertise : (based on my experience not done any research while writing because that stops writing this)
is it worth for me : No
Note: This website penalized due to Quality issues.
google search traffic drop AMP
AMP Plugin wordpress:
high response time >> server>>php>>database>>page generation.
server>>php>>database>>AMP plugin>>page generation.
caching problems of AMP versions at origin server.
bloated with unnecessary JS scripts / fonts (we should optimize it talking AMP for wp Plugin)
Page SiZE 1.5MB normal page Size AVG 512 KB in wordpress.
Ugly design : check bounce rate & Exit rate high when compared to
non amp amp pages i found 85% Bounce & exit rate and removed amp yesterday.
http to Https migration traffic drop
google may (90%) treats https and http as different site (algorithmic issues may be
301 redirection gradually increase traffic but 1st few days/weeks you see traffic decline.
diagnosing when site traffic drops
site speed: compare with your competitors
not single page speed. overall site speed in a month data available chrome ux report. and also google pagespeed insights.
usually we should monitor it once a week due technical reasons our server causes issues (if you are self managing ur server)
on page issues /Panda update:
duplicate content issues for beginners
actually pages block with robots.txt
lot pages with no traffic impact overall site quality.
thin content issues
checking user behaviour on pages
time on page
Avg load time for a page
avg response time
on page seo:
not optimized for keyword or over optimized
high authority site outranked your spot (you can’t do anything except the routine)
readability / usability of user.
off page seo /penguin
this the 3rd one we look after the above. because it fluctuates your actual traffic
it disavow authority links
go to search console>> links to your site
download links in excel format
check quality links by
incoming links from a page that has lot of outbound links
incoming links from unrelated pages
but those are guidelines i don;t know it how much effects & when it taking as consideration
Anchor text ratio:
in order to avoid the penguin penalty trigger
we should maintain the anchor text ratio
there are rules on internet but i forgot now
brand anchor up 50-90% ok
naked version domain name
generic anchors like click here
different anchor texts not all links pointing to homepage but also important pages
rule: don;t buy links because its manipulative but if you hire a seo they build links slowly for you for a charge ($300 minimum monthly but he don’t care your business as much you care, but we need experts (experienced)suggestions because they made mistakes learn from those.

google ranks websites by penalizing websites
by rewarding the sites that don’t follow any tactits in others penalizing low quality for rewarding high quality sites.
a new site ranks up then traffic gradually lost because google collected data about the page but not efficiently.

dwell time return time to serp results.

chrome knows the popularity of a url or search term.
proper way to building links marketing a website. finding real useful websites and asking them. or creating a useful tool many links come to the tool automatically.

How to recover from google penalty (Thin content, unnatural links)
Google Manual penalty about low-quality thing content with No Added value
I think All google Manual Actions made by Humans, All thin content cleaned by panda in case if you’ve missed or running old content with the new domain you may catch after when your traffic blasts.
- Overuse of tags in WordPress
- for An Affiliate website forgot to add rel Nofollow Attribute.
- And Below some information
- Keyword stuffed content
- Grammar mistake poor readability.
- Bounce rate high
- CTR In Google SERPS
- 1st time hit on jobs websites due to theme layout which displays tags beginning of posts looks as keyword stuffing.
- the changed domain that I got one day 20k visits and reverted to the same theme which is penalized previously. again penalized. also, there is a spun content cleaned all. sent for the reconsideration request not lifted the penalty. (manual penalty)
- Again added the new domain to the new theme still not detected because of it’slower than 1k page views per day.
- Some sites with Little content about 150-200 words on each page with high authority not getting penalized.
- Content Need to satisfy a User.
Find Thin Low-quality web pages using Google Analytics
- For this Login to google analytics and use this path Go to Content > Site Content > Content Drilldown.
- review your pages with low Visit for the time at least 90 days to 1 year.
- Edit Posts with No Traffic and update with the latest information, delete unnecessary posts from your website. to clean your website.
Google Analyzes significant percentages of Low-quality pages before they send the email about google manual Actions.
Screaming frog spider is the best way to identify the Thin content recommended by many bloggers. but i never used it because in shared server my website getting 503 unreachable and other server errors.
How to identify low-quality content
Do a search on google as site:yourwebsite.com. sometimes you may not find low-quality pages by google because they remove before you take action to protect their users.
Note: quality page index first, low-quality pages may be last. but you have to notice google
- search Results counts
- Actual indexing results
- results omitted
In order to show you the most relevant results, we have omitted some entries very similar to the NUMBER OF RESULTS already displayed.
If you like, you can repeat the search with the omitted results included.
Ads above fold Algorithm (you have to ignore this)
Reported to default Blogspot traffic rank wide stabilized within 18 hours. using penalized domain created a new blog and written 5+ articles without ads sent for consideration but still, that violates as per google.
But After 1 month 3/1/2015, 3 blogs with the same theme penalized by thin content may be due to ads above the fold 8kpageviews 3 k page views daily and 100-page views blog.
it is no different in layout, but 3 websites belong to the different niche. other 3+ websites using the same theme but some differences are there.but 1 blog have the same theme and ad layout but that not penalized. sure it penalizes in future within 2 months.
- Now I am trying to add about, contact, privacy, disclaimer, sitemap pages to that blogs.
Tried asking on webmaster forum no one helped me. want to consult SEO agency but I do not trust them.
Applying for reconsideration?
manual penalty iterates by the algorithm and Google executive checks after his superior verify and confirms it’s a violation of Google.
some of the people lifted their manual penalty by policy asking google addressing the issue solving them. by showing 3+ high-quality articles.
How to recover from the Thin content issue?
- 1.check for all metrics listed below including keyword stuffed pages.
- I have read the same issue on webmasterworld.com forum but an affiliate site.
- Apart from that forum, someone suggested to don’t love your domain or URL, don’t rely on Google needs to diversify.if you unable to fix you may change the site URL but again you penalize until the issue fixes.(but only when human editors or Automated algorithm update caught.
Also, look at how to use WordPress tags and categories.
