Google Panda Hits So Hard After Involving in MGID Traffic Exchange

Sharing Google panda effect after involving in MGID traffic exchange program.
Google panda hits hard within two days and punished many top positioning posts.

Two weeks before signup for mgid traffic exchange program. Blog was approved within 48 hrs after submitting application and added a mgid widget. First two days average exchange ratio was great, it was 457% and 146% respectively. Unique visitors stats were showing a jump in Google analytic but average page views decreased also bounce rate grew up from 60% to 79.46% and average visit duration only 49 sec that was too low.

In next three days suddenly exchange ratio decreased from 14 march to 16 march traffic ratio was going down it was 72%, 52% and 21 percent. As MGID promises to publishers to sent 150% to 500% visitors back in traffic exchange program. They were failed to sent back 150% visitors to blogger bonus, they sent only total 111% exchange ratio in eight days.

On 17 march I sent email to Bradly Hopes a support department representative who represent MGID network traffic. A email from Hopes received on next day he promised about compensate and making new news for blogger bonus.

Traffic from mgid.com growing gradually from next day after receiving email from Bradly (Thanks Bradly hopes for immediate action) but not that much as I expected. Later on 19 march no such expected traffic improvement removed mgid widget from blog. After three days later on 23 march I found big drop back in my blog traffic, it was 30% down with my actual organic traffic that comes from Google.

I searched my blog posts and keywords those are positioned in first page in Google search engine. Most of posts dropped 4-5 position from actual positioning and many other posts those are searchable on second or third page they were disappeared and found after fourth page within few days. Google Panda hits so hard in just two days I never thought.

Any involvement with traffic exchange, Google can punish your website and decrease your posts level those are in good positioning in search engine, see webmaster  guidelines. This is my first experience with Google panda effect and trying to re apply best SEO to recover Google Panda effect as soon as possible.  My experience with traffic exchange program was sad. Share your experience if you are involved or used traffic exchange program and suggest for Google Panda recovery.

    Traffic from MGID certainly doesn’t give rise to a Google Panda penalty!
    Traffic from 112 visitors certainly isn’t enough data for Google go by to apply a Panda penalty
    - dig deeper, widen up the period you are analysing watch out for duplicate content, thin pages i.e. pages with less than 300 words, copy and paste a chunk of text from pages on your site into Google and check out the results.
    Also check out you link profile.
    Check your previous bounce rate and average time on page metrics for over 6 months backwards
    I know a number of very successful SEOd sites that use MGID to generate extra traffic to their sites.

      The use of MGID’s apps makes your website using unauthorized/copyrighted art and photographic works. If a owner of those work shown record the uses of their works on your website, you can get sued for a fine and interest quite easily. (MGID users’ agreement protect them by making the website owners responsible for the use of the adds. Any website/blog owners who willingly put the MGID apps automatically accept their users’ agreement by doing so.)

      Got a couple of friends who start to register their work on specific website and will soon fill complains again the website owners for using their copyrighted works. The only defense those website owner will have will be to sue MGID but they will have little to no right of doing so because of the users’ agreement they unknowingly accepted.)

  • Very useful information! I was looking for popular sites in Alexa rankings and I found out about MGID, I almost thought of joining till I found your article! Very wise, one must be really careful before using a traffic tactic…Thanks for sharing your experience,

    I think this is just a panda hit, as they hit lot of sites nothing to do with MGID but as it comes on the same time so you may see that like this.

  • No matter if some one searches for his required thing, therefore he/she needs to be available that in
    detail, therefore that thing is maintained over here.

    I have all my doubts that google is going to penalize you just because you are having MGID on your website. Traffic sharing is not suitable for SEO maybe but causes no harm otherwise. For Panda and Penguin my analysis is that you should only wait and see for your turn.

    We’ve been using MGID traffic exchange on an entertainment portal for over 6 months now. It was just today that this thought crossed my mind. I won’t immediately remove the MGID widget but I sure need to dig out for more information like this.

  • Sven //

    same here, traffic dropped 80% since we have mgid.
    what a fiasko!

    did you ever recover from this effect? once you removed mgid organix traffic went up again?
