How to Recover from Panda Dance
Jason Acidre

A few months ago, Google released their latest Panda algorithm update, with it now having a continued algorithm effect, as opposed to just a sudden apocalyptic burst on to the scene. This continued effect has been coined as being the Panda dance, and Jason Acidre’s latest post takes a look at what he’s noticed it’s release, and what can be done in order to recover from the Panda dance.
Jason runs through several techniques which he has used in order to improve the search visibility and general quality of a website, such as improving landing pages which aren’t performing well enough, updating evergreen content, making the most out of local search, etc.

Why Local Businesses Don’t Need Big Budgets for Their Content Marketing
Matthew Barby

The final post this week comes from our own online strategist Matthew Barby, who has managed to land another post on the Moz blog. The original idea for this post came from a discussion in the office between himself and Charles Floate on the subject of content marketing. In this post, he argues the case that content for small businesses entails everything – the design of your workplace, the employees, etc, and that utilising these in conjunction with your regular SEO/social media efforts can prove to be hugely fruitful.
Throughout this post, Matthew goes over these points in detail, looking at various examples of how businesses large and small have managed to become renowned for their services, as well as providing the thoughts of several SEOs from a thread made on Inbound based on this topic.
