site is Baidu and KO, from the 2 weights before strong one to 0, the fragile heart, and, how can we pick up the tragedy. The following coup 10 steps, slowly stroked, slowly smooth, see what the reason.
A few days before the
(about 05 in 2013 23) Baidu descended on my website, until now there has been no breath from the weight of the 2 was up to 0, in the end is violated which commandment, at the beginning of June rose to 1 of the weight, not after second days and become 0 the. Depressed heart tangled pieces of hate. After a few days of careful observation, he finally found some places to save him. Here to share, I hope to help the majority of webmaster.
1, first try it, title tags since half a year ago for once, until KO before never changed, is not the title for a long time, from now to have experienced during the first half of Baidu’s baotao raging struck all right, the only time in May more than 20 the last fall, the first time with title is probably too long, not timely replacement led to the fatal disaster.
2, above the head changed over, the next step is Links, recently a penalized site is certainly not me, there are many websites they may also be hurt by me, then search a lot of both haven’t updated and Baidu weight has been reduced to 0, delete these links, in order to humanity doctrine, give people say, then delete.
3, the third is the content of the website, recently to redouble their efforts, all of the use of the original text, pseudo original and copied directly once the text is also Baidu found, these days has been the original text. Original text more popular, an hour later will find the explanation, the site has not been completely K, can even be included.
4, use Adsense tools under Ip query below website how many, look at the website quality, have recently been K ah, many things will have to change the space, this problem is very important, if the space is K. Seven or eight. Worse, estimated to do some above all powerless to. Short for space. Change a server relatively stable, relatively high quality on it.
5, and then the chain, during this period do not lazy, and can do the chain of the place to do it, this can make the site physical recovery faster, or else to recover more slowly for a long time. In the hair chain, but also pay attention to the originality of the text.
6, look at the daily trend, you can compare the same industry website, to see their update speed and update snapshot, is not also on your website the same day, or closer?. So you can learn more about Baidu’s temper.
7, prayer, faith, determination, these mental things are going to work.
