  1. Hello Om,

    Welcome to the world of blogging 🙂

    Google Panda update was aimed to lower the rank of "low-quality sites" or "thin sites", and return higher-quality sites near the top of the search results.

    While doing this, google sometimes made an error and also lowered the ranking of high authority sites or good quality sites. To recover their rankings, good quality sites had to clean up their website for content that was thin – meaning pages with very few words on it. They had to update those pages into lengthier and more value adding pages. They added relevant images and videos and content that's relevant to changing times.

    Some just deleted thin content pages from their sites. In the above post, we've mentioned various methods to recover your rankings if you were hit by a Google Panda update.

    Does that help?
