Getting visitors to newly created site is not easy. You need to improve Google rankings of website to start receiving nice amount of traffic.
I will not go into various methods, link building techniques, “how to” and other guides found on Internet. In this post I will write about Panda Bot Network. A free way to improve Google rankings for website, hopefully.
Pandabot is a traffic network who’s goal is to improve search engine ranking by improving web sites usage metrics and boosting social presence via Facebook, YouTube, Google+, Twitter and other social networks.
It is done by allowing to create tasks within the Panda Bot system. Tasks are carried out automatically by other users running the Pandabot Smart Browser. It is an easy way to get some traffic flowing through your site.
I have stumble upon Panda Bot somewhere in the beginning of 2014 but never actually gave it a try. I did install it but so many options needed to be configured that I just lost interest. By options needed to be set I mean campaigns for your site.
There is just so many text and instructions everywhere and I am very lazy. So I left it like that. Then somewhere in March I gave it another try. Setting up campaign for site took a good portion of time. When all was ready I started Panda Smart Browser. But nothing happened. It didn’t work.
Needless to say I was very pissed as I lost good portion of the day in setting up something that doesn’t work. It was strange as there are no special requirements except latest .NET framework to be installed. It was strike number two.
In May, I gave it another go. I started program, changing nothing (at least nothing I remember). This time it worked. The program started browsing other people’s websites while doing traffic campaigns for mine.
How Does Panda Bot Improve Google Rankings?
Panda Bot Network increases your site usage metrics which is important to Google when showing search results. Usage metrics is time spent on site, bounce rates, browse rates, various keywords search, direct traffic, social sharing, comments, etc.
Panda Bot is free to use system. It and can be used to improve ranking of website or YouTube videos. The system works on time credits.
You can either buy time to have your tasks completed or earn time by running the Panda browser on your own computer. You start by installing it and configuring traffic or/and social campaigns via Panda Bot Network Interface for your site.
Then other users with installed Panda Smart Browser will search your keywords, click your links, browse your website, like, share content, leave comments etc depending on your set campaigns.
But you will also need to let Panda Browser work in background in order to receive credits which are spent on others doing your traffic campaign tasks.
Some of tasks Panda Bot does in order to improve Google rankings for your website or videos:
- Click on competitors links and quickly click back to the search engine results page giving them a negative bounce rate
- Share, follow, re-post and like on Facebook, LinkedIn, Tumblr and Pinterest, Tweet, re-tweet and follow on Twitter
- Watch your videos, like and subscribe to your channel on YouTube
- AdSense safe, guaranteed organic search engine traffic
- Traffic is seen as completely organic, not a bot or crawler
- Create unique automated browsing patters to hit all of your internal pages
You may be worried is it safe to use it. If we are to believe official site, the Panda Smart Browser is virus and spyware free. They claim to only accept quality sites that are not infected with any malware or deliver any “inappropriate” content (Porn of any kind, violence, etc.).
They also claim to check every site at the start of each campaign with online antivirus software. That may be true. I personally didn’t have any problems. The sites browsed by Panda Browser look OK. Didnt had any encounters with “fishy” sites for now.
But you can’t be sure. When setting up your traffic tasks you have the option to hide your tasks. That makes many sites hidden. That way you cant see visited sites every time.
In that case, when task is processed it shows a white screen on the remote browsers window with a message saying that you have chosen to keep that task hidden. The task gets completed and a new one starts.

Installing and Configuring Panda Bot
Visit Panda Bot site and choose to sign up. Basic membership is free. You can upgrade membership type if you want. Confirm email and visit you Panda Bot account.
Now it is time todownload Panda Smart Browser by clicking link in Active Resources on your account Main Page. When installed you can run Smart Browser even without configuring your campaign.
You can set it later and ,for now, let Panda Smart Browser work in background in order to get some credits. I leave it on all the time when my computer is working. Configuring campaign takes some time, especially if you want to set it for more than one site/video. But once configured it doesn’t require more work.
When you are ready to go improving Google ranking, set up campaigns. That is done by clicking Panda Bot Network Back Office link (above link you clicked to download Panda Smart Browser).
Now starts the boring part. Setting up campaigns. I will not write about it as all is explained great on site. It may be confusing at the start but take time and done it as intended. Here is tutorial showing step by step set up.
PandaBot Review Summary
As I just started using it for one of my sites as test, I still can’t say how well does it help improving site/videos rankings in the eye of the Google. The idea is great. Real users browse your site so in Google eyes it should look completely normal.
Panda Bot works great once everything is set. If you are lazy like me, then setting campaigns will be pain in the ass as it can be time-consuming.
Panda Browser can be left to work in background but there is no option to mute YouTube videos. So you will need to turn volume down if you don’t want to listen when Panda browses videos.
From time to time Panda Smart Browser will also freeze. I don’t know is it just me or others have the same problem. Then you need to close it and start again.
That makes questionable “Set and Forget” feature. Luckily, that doesn’t happen very often. Panda Bot also needs more users. There is decent number active but it needs lot more. I see many videos and sites repeated everyday on my Browser.
