Google Panda Update, One Year Later from InfoGraphic

Google panda 3.3: 40 changes for February


Google has confirmed a new Panda update at the same time that it’s announcing 40 search updates that happened in February (or are in progress right now).


Here’s the list for February:
  • More coverage for related searches. [launch codename “Fuzhou”] This launch brings in a new data source to help generate the “Searches related to” section, increasing coverage significantly so the feature will appear for more queries. This section contains search queries that can help you refine what you’re searching for.
  • Tweak to categorizer for expanded sitelinks. [launch codename “Snippy”, project codename “Megasitelinks”] This improvement adjusts a signal we use to try and identify duplicate snippets. We were applying a categorizer that wasn’t performing well for our expanded sitelinks, so we’ve stopped applying the categorizer in those cases. The result is more relevant sitelinks.
  • Less duplication in expanded sitelinks. [launch codename “thanksgiving”, project codename “Megasitelinks”] We’ve adjusted signals to reduce duplication in the snippets for expanded sitelinks. Now we generate relevant snippets based more on the page content and less on the query.
  • More consistent thumbnail sizes on results page. We’ve adjusted the thumbnail size for most image content appearing on the results page, providing a more consistent experience across result types, and also across mobile and tablet. The new sizes apply to rich snippet results for recipes and applications, movie posters, shopping results, book results, news results and more.
  • More locally relevant predictions in YouTube. [project codename “Suggest”] We’ve improved the ranking for predictions in YouTube to provide more locally relevant queries. For example, for the query [lady gaga in ] performed on the US version of YouTube, we might predict [lady gaga in times square], but for the same search performed on the Indian version of YouTube, we might predict [lady gaga in India].
  • More accurate detection of official pages. [launch codename “WRE”] We’ve made an adjustment to how we detect official pages to make more accurate identifications. The result is that many pages that were previously misidentified as official will no longer be.
  • Refreshed per-URL country information. [Launch codename “longdew”, project codename “country-id data refresh”] We updated the country associations for URLs to use more recent data.
  • Expand the size of our images index in Universal Search. [launch codename “terra”, project codename “Images Universal”] We launched a change to expand the corpus of results for which we show images in Universal Search. This is especially helpful to give more relevant images on a larger set of searches.
  • Minor tuning of autocomplete policy algorithms. [project codename “Suggest”] We have a narrow set of policies for autocomplete for offensive and inappropriate terms. This improvement continues to refine the algorithms we use to implement these policies.
  • “Site:” query update [launch codename “Semicolon”, project codename “Dice”] This change improves the ranking for queries using the “site:” operator by increasing the diversity of results.
  • Improved detection for SafeSearch in Image Search. [launch codename "Michandro", project codename “SafeSearch”] This change improves our signals for detecting adult content in Image Search, aligning the signals more closely with the signals we use for our other search results.
  • Interval based history tracking for indexing. [project codename “Intervals”] This improvement changes the signals we use in document tracking algorithms. 
  • Improvements to foreign language synonyms. [launch codename “floating context synonyms”, project codename “Synonyms”] This change applies an improvement we previously launched for English to all other languages. The net impact is that you’ll more often find relevant pages that include synonyms for your query terms.
  • Disabling two old fresh query classifiers. [launch codename “Mango”, project codename “Freshness”] As search evolves and new signals and classifiers are applied to rank search results, sometimes old algorithms get outdated. This improvement disables two old classifiers related to query freshness.
  • More organized search results for Google Korea. [launch codename “smoothieking”, project codename “Sokoban4”] This significant improvement to search in Korea better organizes the search results into sections for news, blogs and homepages.
  • Fresher images. [launch codename “tumeric”] We’ve adjusted our signals for surfacing fresh images. Now we can more often surface fresh images when they appear on the web.
  • Update to the Google bar. [project codename “Kennedy”] We continue to iterate in our efforts to deliver a beautifully simple experience across Google products, and as part of that this month we made further adjustments to the Google bar. The biggest change is that we’ve replaced the drop-down Google menu in the November redesign with a consistent and expanded set of links running across the top of the page.
  • Adding three new languages to classifier related to error pages. [launch codename "PNI", project codename "Soft404"] We have signals designed to detect crypto 404 pages (also known as “soft 404s”), pages that return valid text to a browser but the text only contain error messages, such as “Page not found.” It’s rare that a user will be looking for such a page, so it’s important we be able to detect them. This change extends a particular classifier to Portuguese, Dutch and Italian.
  • Improvements to travel-related searches. [launch codename “nesehorn”] We’ve made improvements to triggering for a variety of flight-related search queries. These changes improve the user experience for our Flight Search feature with users getting more accurate flight results.
  • Data refresh for related searches signal. [launch codename “Chicago”, project codename “Related Search”] One of the many signals we look at to generate the “Searches related to” section is the queries users type in succession. If users very often search for [apple] right after [banana], that’s a sign the two might be related. This update refreshes the model we use to generate these refinements, leading to more relevant queries to try.
  • International launch of shopping rich snippets. [project codename “rich snippets”]Shopping rich snippets help you more quickly identify which sites are likely to have the most relevant product for your needs, highlighting product prices, availability, ratings and review counts. This month we expanded shopping rich snippets globally (they were previously only available in the US, Japan and Germany).
  • Improvements to Korean spelling. This launch improves spelling corrections when the user performs a Korean query in the wrong keyboard mode (also known as an "IME", or input method editor). Specifically, this change helps users who mistakenly enter Hangul queries in Latin mode or vice-versa.
  • Improvements to freshness. [launch codename “iotfreshweb”, project codename “Freshness”] We’ve applied new signals which help us surface fresh content in our results even more quickly than before.
  • Web History in 20 new countries. With Web History, you can browse and search over your search history and webpages you've visited. You will also get personalized search results that are more relevant to you, based on what you’ve searched for and which sites you’ve visited in the past. In order to deliver more relevant and personalized search results, we’ve launched Web History in Malaysia, Pakistan, Philippines, Morocco, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Estonia, Kuwait, Iraq, Sri Lanka, Tunisia, Nigeria, Lebanon, Luxembourg, Bosnia and Herzegowina, Azerbaijan, Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago, Republic of Moldova, and Ghana. Web History is turned on only for people who have a Google Account and previously enabled Web History.
  • Improved snippets for video channels. Some search results are links to channels with many different videos, whether on mtv.com, Hulu or YouTube. We’ve had a feature for a while now that displays snippets for these results including direct links to the videos in the channel, and this improvement increases quality and expands coverage of these rich “decorated” snippets. We’ve also made some improvements to our backends used to generate the snippets.
  • Improvements to ranking for local search results. [launch codename “Venice”] This improvement improves the triggering of Local Universal results by relying more on the ranking of our main search results as a signal. 
  • Improvements to English spell correction. [launch codename “Kamehameha”] This change improves spelling correction quality in English, especially for rare queries, by making one of our scoring functions more accurate.
  • Improvements to coverage of News Universal. [launch codename “final destination”] We’ve fixed a bug that caused News Universal results not to appear in cases when our testing indicates they’d be very useful.
  • Consolidation of signals for spiking topics. [launch codename “news deserving score”, project codename “Freshness”] We use a number of signals to detect when a new topic is spiking in popularity. This change consolidates some of the signals so we can rely on signals we can compute in realtime, rather than signals that need to be processed offline. This eliminates redundancy in our systems and helps to ensure we can continue to detect spiking topics as quickly as possible.
  • Better triggering for Turkish weather search feature. [launch codename “hava”] We’ve tuned the signals we use to decide when to present Turkish users with the weather search feature. The result is that we’re able to provide our users with the weather forecast right on the results page with more frequency and accuracy.
  • Visual refresh to account settings page. We completed a visual refresh of the account settings page, making the page more consistent with the rest of our constantly evolving design.
  • Panda update. This launch refreshes data in the Panda system, making it more accurate and more sensitive to recent changes on the web.
  • Link evaluation. We often use characteristics of links to help us figure out the topic of a linked page. We have changed the way in which we evaluate links; in particular, we are turning off a method of link analysis that we used for several years. We often rearchitect or turn off parts of our scoring in order to keep our system maintainable, clean and understandable.
  • SafeSearch update. We have updated how we deal with adult content, making it more accurate and robust. Now, irrelevant adult content is less likely to show up for many queries.
  • Spam update. In the process of investigating some potential spam, we found and fixed some weaknesses in our spam protections.
  • Improved local results. We launched a new system to find results from a user’s city more reliably. Now we’re better able to detect when both queries and documents are local to the user.

9 Signs of a Bad Title Tag


9 Signs of a Bad Title Tag:


1. "Home" or "Home Page" in title tag
It may be logical or helpful to the website owner, but including "Home" or "Home Page" does not help visitors or search engines. All we really care about is what the page is about, and what it offers us. Why take up space with this non-information? You surely don't want to rank for the terms "home" or "home page."
2. Domain name in title tag
Including the domain name (like example.com) in the title tag is redundant and takes up prime SEO real estate.
If a searcher cares what site they'll be taken to, they can look at the green URL that's visible in the search result before they click. And web pages are automatically going to rank very high (at the top unless something is wrong with your SEO) when people search for your domain name, whether it's in the title tag or not.
Put another way - Is it more important to tell people your website address, or to tell them about what you offer and show search engines a keyword?
3. Too long
Search engines display only the first 70 characters (about) of a web page's title tag. The rest gets chopped off and replaced with ellipses.
4. Too short
Short and sweet can be nice, but you might as well use all the space available to tell people and search engines about the web page. Making your title tags close to - but not exceeding - 70 characters is a good way to get the most out of your title tags and optimize your chances of showing up for different keyword searches.
5. No keywords
The purpose of your title tag is to tell people and search engines what your web page is about. If it doesn't include keywords, you're doing it wrong.
6. Just the business name
I know it's tempting to make your title tags be just your business name, especially on your home page. But unless your business name is 70+ characters long or contains several of your important keywords already, you should really include more so that you'll be found - and clicked on - by people who aren't familiar with your business yet.
For example, if you were searching for a local business that sold widgets, how likely would you be to click on a search result that just said a generic business name like "Jones & Jones, Inc."? You probably wouldn't waste your time clicking on a search result that doesn't make it clear the company is in your city and or that it sells what you're looking for. Because the title tag doesn't make it clear what Jones & Jones sells, or where they're located, search engines are less likely to rank that result high in search results.
7. First few words aren't important or eye-catching
Research shows that people scan search results quickly. Searchers pay the most attention to the first few words in search results, and the first few results on the page. The heat map at right shows you where people tend to click in a page of Google search results.
Make the first few words of your title tags count by including the keywords you think will be most relevant to searchers. Or write something that will catch people's attention. Put your best foot forward, and cut the meaningless fluff.
For example, I searched for "cat toilet training" and found the search result shown below. It did catch my attention and make me read the whole search entry to see if it was really what I was looking for. But many people would just skip it, and focus on the search results that mention their search terms right up front.

8. Doesn't include geographic location - if location is important
If you have a physical retail location, or if you want to target customers in a specific region, you should make it clear to searchers and search engines where you're located. Include your neighborhood, city, state, or county - whatever makes most sense for your business - in your title tag and in other website content.
9. Too many keywords (spammy looking)
If your title tag is just a long string of keywords, it might rank well for those keywords, but the real live people searching for those words will probably be less likely to click that result.
Here are two examples of keyword-filled title tags in a search result:

Namaste Sada Vatsale - RSS Prayer


image courtesy samvada.org

Namaste Sada Vatsale is Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh's prayer. This prayer is in Sanskrit except last line which is in Hindi. It is compulsory to sing this prayer in all programs of Sangh. It was written by some unknown Sanskrit professor in guidance of Dr. K. B. Hedgewar and Madhav Sadashiv Golwalkar.





Originally this poem was written in Sanskrit language. Later it was translated in Hindi also. Its original form in other Indian script as well as IOAT format is given as under:





Devanagari

नमस्ते सदा वत्सले मातृभूमे
त्वया हिन्दुभूमे सुखं वर्धितोहम् ।
महामङ्गले पुण्यभूमे त्वदर्थे
पतत्वेष कायो नमस्ते नमस्ते ।।१।।
प्रभो शक्तिमन् हिन्दुराष्ट्राङ्गभूता
इमे सादरं त्वां नमामो वयम्
त्वदीयाय कार्याय बध्दा कटीयं
शुभामाशिषं देहि तत्पूर्तये ।
अजय्यां च विश्वस्य देहीश शक्तिं
सुशीलं जगद्येन नम्रं भवेत्
श्रुतं चैव यत्कण्टकाकीर्ण मार्गं
स्वयं स्वीकृतं नः सुगं कारयेत् ।।२।।
समुत्कर्षनिःश्रेयस्यैकमुग्रं
परं साधनं नाम वीरव्रतम्
तदन्तः स्फुरत्वक्षया ध्येयनिष्ठा
हृदन्तः प्रजागर्तु तीव्रानिशम् ।
विजेत्री च नः संहता कार्यशक्तिर्
विधायास्य धर्मस्य संरक्षणम् ।
परं वैभवं नेतुमेतत् स्वराष्ट्रं
समर्था भवत्वाशिषा ते भृशम् ।।३।।
भारत माता की जय ।।

Meaning

Forever I bow to thee, O Loving Motherland! O Motherland of us Hindus, Thou hast brought me up in happiness. May my life, O great and blessed Holy Land, be laid down in Thy Cause. I bow to Thee again and again.
We the children of the Hindu Nation bow to Thee in reverence, O Almighty God. We have girded up our loins to carry on Thy work. Give us Thy holy blessings for its fulfillment. O Lord! Grant us such might as no power on earth can ever challenge, such purity of character as would command the respect of the whole world and such knowledge as would make easy the thorny path that we have voluntarily chosen.
May we be inspired with the spirit of stern heroism, that is sole and ultimate means of attaining the highest spiritual bliss with the greatest temporal prosperity. May intense and everlasting devotion to our ideal ever enthuse our hearts. May our victorious organised power of action, by Thy Grace, be wholly capable of protecting our dharma and leading this nation of ours to the highest pinnacle of glory.


Verse Translation in Hindi

A poet laureate from India has translated this Sanskrit prayer in Hindi. It was published in a book in the year 1992. The same verse translation is reproduced hereunder for the wikipedia viewers:

हे परम वत्सला मातृभूमि! तुझको प्रणाम शत कोटि बार।
हे महा मंगला पुण्यभूमि ! तुझ पर न्योछावर तन हजार।।
हे हिन्दुभूमि भारत! तूने, सब सुख दे मुझको बड़ा किया;
तेरा ऋण इतना है कि चुका, सकता न जन्म ले एक बार।
हे सर्व शक्तिमय परमेश्वर! हम हिंदुराष्ट्र के सभी घटक,
तुझको सादर श्रद्धा समेत, कर रहे कोटिशः नमस्कार।।
तेरा ही है यह कार्य हम सभी, जिस निमित्त कटिबद्ध हुए;
वह पूर्ण हो सके ऐसा दे, हम सबको शुभ आशीर्वाद।
सम्पूर्ण विश्व के लिये जिसे, जीतना न सम्भव हो पाये;
ऐसी अजेय दे शक्ति कि जिससे, हम समर्थ हों सब प्रकार।।
दे ऐसा उत्तम शील कि जिसके, सम्मुख हो यह जग विनम्र;
दे ज्ञान जो कि कर सके सुगम, स्वीकृत कन्टक पथ दुर्निवार।
कल्याण और अभ्युदय का, एक ही उग्र साधन है जो;
वह मेरे इस अन्तर में हो, स्फुरित वीरव्रत एक बार।।
जो कभी न होवे क्षीण निरन्तर, और तीव्रतर हो ऐसी;
सम्पूर्ण ह्र्दय में जगे ध्येय, निष्ठा स्वराष्ट्र से बढे प्यार।
निज राष्ट्र-धर्म रक्षार्थ निरन्तर, बढ़े संगठित कार्य-शक्ति;
यह राष्ट्र परम वैभव पाये, ऐसा उपजे मन में विचार।।
