Panda – the soft nature bear is Aggressive in hands of Google! As we all knew already, lot of big sites were hit by Google’s panda update (Ex: EzineArticles). Top SEOs are already saying Panda algorithm is already penalizing ad heavy pages. Now to make it true, Matt Cutts, head of Google’s web spam team, when speaking at the Pubcon conference on Nov 9 said “Google is testing algorithms that determine what are the things that really matter, how much content is above the fold.”
He also added “If you have ads obscuring your content, you might want to think about it,” asking publishers to consider, “Do they see content or something else that’s distracting or annoying?”
Matt Cutts also said that “his team sends one way messages to the Adsense team in order to help webmasters comply with Google quality guidelines.”
That being said, its time for us Adsense Junkies to change our Website’s layouts to make it Adsense and Google friendly. Here is the new Layout that complies with Google’s new policies.
This new layout may decrease the CTR. But compromising the ad layout for CTR may result in your site being penalized by Google. We’re aggressively working on ways that improve CTR/revenue even with the new layout. You’ll get an update when we figure out something.
We don’t see other adsense niche website sellers are not yet concerned about this new update. If you bought micro niche sites from any other seller, just alert them so that their clients will be safe.
