Nowadays, it is simpler than ever to be old-fashioned. Nope, I am pretty sure that you don’t want to be an outdated designer but this is the cruel reality. Take my example, I have been guest blogging for three years now and, until a few months ago, I disregarded the idea of responsive design or the utility of any gadget but I should probably change my opinion to continue blogging.

Willing or not, basic documentation is a must for everyone involved in web-related activities and even if we “waste” precious time reading various books or articles, it should not consist in a decisive impediment. In order to keep the same rhythm with the Internet and also with the web design “explosion”, it is mandatory to read, find out new ideas and techniques and practice in order to form new skills.

No, this is not an article about a Zoo that Google has purchased… In fact, I’m sure most of you know all that you want to know about Google Panda and Google Penguin, two new algorithms that have turned Google Search Results upside down over the past year and a half.
What’s interesting is that even though these two new algorithms have far reaching implications for millions of websites around the world, there still isn’t a lot of coverage on them. That is until now! 😉
In this article I will provide you with an overview on each of these two Google algorithms, explain how they work, discuss how they affect website SEO, show you how to find out if your website was hit by them, and review how to recover your website’s search ranking after it’s been affected by these algorithms.
