While reviewing websites, quite often we find sites that already have become a victim of Google Panda’s algorithm, or run the risk of getting “Pandalized”.

In this post I want to give you some quick insights into what Google Panda is and how you can prevent from getting hit by it.

- You improve the content and quality of these pages. This means adding more well written content, but it often also means making sure you don’t have too many ads on the page and improve the UX of the page.
