"Google and the other search engines crawl your website using the text. They crawl text. That is why you need to have as much of it as possible on your website."
"The more links pointing at you’re the higher your chances of getting indexed faster. Links from high ranking websites, or more important websites (aka – websites with a high page rank) are better and more meaningful than links from link farms or websites of low importance (meaning – websites with a low or no page rank)."
"These days it is understood that the best type of website architecture is a flat architecture. By creating a flat architecture you are endeavoring that each page on your website can be reached with a minimum amount of clicks"
"Get listed in as many directories as possible. The more traffic a directory has the better."
I can think on one or two ways these could go wrong very quickly
My 2 cents on this is: Panda changes with new algorithm data is not the same as real time assessment of Panda signals already in the algorithm.
