My Panda Update

Yes folks. I’ve been reading a lot about Google’s Panda and Penguin shenanigans. Without going into the gory details, these animals are Google algorithm updates that are basically advising websites and blogs to produce good original content. So long as we do that, we’re all good. Concentrate on engaging your readers, they say.  Catchy titles. No dirty tricks. Minimize ads above the fold (the part of a blog or website you see on your screen when you open the link). Make the post easy to read. Easy, eh? It is, for me.

So here is this week’s all-important Panda Update. Here is the Panda I am most concerned about. (Click the photos to enlarge)

The Panda’s watching you! 

Vigilant Panda, watching closely
Sometimes you can see it, sometimes not

Panda on the prowl
Clearly visible, focused on its goals
Doesn’t spare any spot…
It is just trying to improve and enhance the user experience
Panda says ‘bye 

Talking about SEO (Search Engine Optimization) – my friend Vanita Cyril of After Bedtime Blog – who is a kickass SEO demystifying, WordPress theme designing Mompreneur who tweets, pins, blogs and conquers the world on a daily basis -recently launched an amazing ecourse about how to make Google love your WordPress blog. You can check out the details here:  Google Luv Course. The course content is amazing and some of her students are already enjoying results from the first few lessons.  What do I get out of it? Pleasure. Happiness. And the satisfaction that I am recommending someone I trust.

So now – let’s go wish Unknown Mami’s little girl, Put Pie, who turned four this weekend, a happy happy birthday and join the party at her place. Yes, world-travel is included. 



Have a fabulous week ahead, friends!

    That was a Panda? Looked like a cross between a fox and a Panda. Hmmmmm….

    I have a post coming out soon about my site and SEO is part of it; better check out your recommendation.

    Easy to read is good……..and 582 words…….:).

    Great share Vidya!

    I had a good laugh about the Google Panda as compared to this cute one – I think this is any-day a better update as compared to the Google one, one that I would have vouched for as well 🙂

    Thanks for sharing. 🙂

    Is that a panda? It’s not like the ones I’ve seen but he’s still a cutie.

    I like your panda siting’s better then the ones Google does Vidya. I also have no doubt that if you recommend Vanita’s course then it’s a good one.

    Thanks for sharing.

    I hear Panda tastes like chicken. Not so sure about Google Pandas. 😉

    Vidya…..you have such a ‘fun’ sense of humor…if that make sense. I LOVE the panda photos. I feel like you could turn it into a children’s book and use illustrations instead of the photos. As always Vidya, thanks for your observations on what most people wouldn’t even notice. You rock! xxoo-Fran

    I always forget about these little red pandas, my brain always pictures the big black and whites.

    Hi Vidya,

    LOL 😀 This is the Vidya I know 😉 Yeah, it’s true. I love pics of REAL Panda and thought they suppose to black and white. Am I referring to WHO? 😉

    Enjoyed the comparison of your Panda and Google Panda dear. BTW, I wanted to ask, did you captured all those pics? For this post specifically? 🙂

    Love to see Vanita mentioned here 🙂 She’s the WordPress Momma. No doubt about her expertise on it.

    Cheers…

      Hey Mayura! Good to see you here. 🙂 Yeah, these photos are from my camera (I have at least 60 photos of these pandas). Red panda are native to Sikkim in Northeast India, which we visited a couple of months ago. I was just wondering what to post this Sunday for my photo post since I hadn’t gone out anywhere over the weekend, when suddenly this idea came to me! 😀

      I just couldn’t resist the Google Panda connection!

      Cheers! Vidya
