Google has just announced that the Panda update has been rolled out in all English speaking countries. According to Google the latest update to its algorithm is very accurate, however they insist that if your website is of high quality and the latest update affects your website then you should look in all different aspects of your website extensively. Panda also known as the Farmer update affected almost 12% of all searches when it was rolled out in United States just over a month ago.
Here is Google’s official statement:
“Today we’ve rolled out this improvement globally to all English-language Google users, and we’ve also incorporated new user feedback signals to help people find better search results. In some high-confidence situations, we are beginning to incorporate data about the sites that users block into our algorithms. In addition, this change also goes deeper into the “long tail” of low-quality websites to return higher-quality results where the algorithm might not have been able to make an assessment before. The impact of these new signals is smaller in scope than the original change: about 2% of U.S. queries are affected by a reasonable amount, compared with almost 12% of U.S. queries for the original change.”
