It’s here! Google has released panda update 2.2, just as matt cutts said they would at smx advanced here in seattle a couple of weeks ago. This time around, google has – among other things – improved their ability to detect scraper sites and banish them from the serps. Of course, the panda updates are changes to google’s algorithm and are not merely manual reviews of sites in the index, so there is room for error (causing devastation for many legitimate webmasters and seos).
A lot of people ask what parts
Existing seo practice they can modify and Italy Business Fax List emphasize to recover from the blow, but alas, it’s not that simple. In this week’s whiteboard friday, rand discusses how the panda updates work and, more importantly, how panda has fundamentally changed the best practices for seo. Have you been panda-abused? Do you have any tips for recuperating? Let us know in the comments!
Howdy, seomoz fans. Welcome to another edition of whiteboard friday
This week, we’re talking about the very exciting, very interesting, very controversial google panda update.
Panda, also known as farmer, was this Email Lists update that google came out with in march of this year, of 2011, that rejiggered a bunch of search results and pushed a lot of websites down in the rankings, pushed some websites up in the rankings, and people have been concerned about it ever since. It has actually had several updates and new versions of that implementation and algorithm come out. A lot of people have all these questions like, “Ah, what’s going on around panda?” there have been some great blog posts on seomoz talking about some of the technical aspects. But I want to discuss in this whiteboard friday some of the philosophical and theoretical aspects and how google panda really changes the way a lot of us need to approach seo.
