It was more than one month after the first version of Google Penguin launched on April 24th and one week after Google Penguin 1.1 rolled out. I have kept updating Google Penguin information since that time and monitoring my website. It seem Google have done well their job by the news I read from some SEO Experts. But on Google Vietnam (google.com.vn) with Vietnamese language search, I keep being seen a lot of less relevant content appear on SERP(s).
On April 19th, my company website, the website that considered having useful and good content and well done on SEO by other webmasters and SEOs in Vietnam, has been dropped ranking and lost 50% traffic. Google announced they fixed the issue Classfied for parked domain. But my website has not been recovered. There are some other good ones are also in same situation, and some of poor content website increased ranking. It made a many webmasters in Vietnam surprised and confused.
Personally, I’m a fan of Google and I hoped Google will have solution for that issue soon. And after that some days, Google had announced that they rolled out Google Penguin update (on April 24th) and Google Panda 3.6 update (confirmed by Barry Schwartz on April 27th). But it seem nothing had been changed on SERP(s) on Google Vietnam.
Until now, I don’t know my website has been dropped ranking because of Google Penguin or Classified for parked domain issue. Anyway, I accepted the situation of my website, because I thought maybe there were something wrong with my website although I had tried some Google Penguin recover tips. But beside of those, I see that since April 19th with many updates from Google, there were a lot of less relevant content appear on Google Vietnam. I have taken some screen shots about that and posted on my Vietnamese blog as following picture:
This is the url of the irrelevant content: http://topweb.vn/vi/tai-nguyen/marketing-truc-tuyen/a11106/cach-tang-luot-truy-cap-website.aspx.
Thiết kế website mean website design in English, and the URL I have mentioned has the content about How to increase traffic for website. On the previous day, my co-worker had been taken another screen shot with same keyword as following picture on top 4 result:
This is the URL of above result: http://violet.vn/main/entry/showglobal/entry_id/7664212/cm_id/2441540
I’m a 10 years experienced person as a webmaster, web developer and web designer and 7 years experienced working on SEO, I usually follow Google Webmaster Guidelines and a white hat SEOs, maybe my SEO knowledge is not good as you, but I don’t know how I could explain this to other webmasters about this result when they asked me.
Now, let’s check another keyword reported by another webmaster to me, it’s “dien dan seo“. It mean SEO forum in English.
Here is my screen shot for above search:
You can see the first result is thaoluanseo.com (thao luan SEO mean SEO discussion). Currently, that’s the suspended website while I’m writing this blog post.
Well, I think you can say that because Google have not been updated yet, so Google ranked the page when it had not been suspended before. But with the cached version, you can see that is not a page with useful content and it’s just a stuffing keywords content page with some links to other websites. Please check out the following picture:
Google Penguin may be going well with English version but on Vietnamese version, I see it’s becoming worse. I hope Google will fix this soon for Vietnamese. I will very be appreciated who could explain those things to me.
Thanks for reading this post and i’m sorry for my English.
