    Google Panda 2.6 Update? 13 October 2011

    Over the past three days starting October 13th 2011, I've noticed keywords bouncing around on a few of my sites. The serp changes are very similar to the flux that started on September 18th before the official confirmation of Panda 2.5 on September 28th.


    Anyone else noticing any SERP changes?

    My revenue decreased by approximately 1000% overnight, yesterday. This is the first Panda update that has impacted me negatively. My revenue has again fluctuated, tripling from yesterday, but still only a third of what I'd expect on an average day. This is not good...

    Looking closer, the day before yesterday was not too hot either. I've stooped from 1,750 page views daily to approximately 350.

    Since 2 days Analytics is showing higher time spent on time and higher page view per visit.

    Very strange here the past 6 days on all of my sites, 11-13 Oct I saw > 20% bump across all sites that get more than 50 uniques a day, then 14-16 Oct, a > 40% drop....slight recovery over the past 24 hours, but still down significantly.
    One of my sites that I went through and merged > 900 tag pages down to 15 saw the biggest hit in traffic > 50% drop on 14 Oct that is sticking so far with no recovery...
    Has their been other chatter or announcements regarding a new update yet?

    I'm down 60% on one of my main sites. The only thing that I did was an experiment with Amazon affiliate links since the last Panda Update. I added between 1-3 affiliate links and an Amazon Wordpress plugin to approx. 30% of the pages.

    I just removed all the Amazon.

    All the same here, didn't notice any changes with any of the Google Panda updates. I only use HQ backlinks and unique content on my websites and the Google Panda updates don't seem to effect my websites

    Search Engine Roundtable is reporting a Minor Panda Update October 13th: Panda 2.5.2 and Panda 2.5.1 on October 9th

    Google Panda 2.5.2 Update - October 13th

    Matt Cutts tweeted a weather report back on Oct 5th to expect Panda-related flux in the next few weeks.

    It seems that we can expect Panda 2.5.3 comming soon!

    Panda 2.5.2 seems to have affected mainly the IM industry. There isn't much chatter about mainstream sites getting hit.

    So, here's a Panda question for ya....at what point do you move an entire domain to a new domain or subdomain and 301 all of the old there? Down for 2 Panda cycles? 3? Seems to have done the trick for Hubpages, but haven't seen any other good examples of it working. Acking its different if you have "Brand Investment" but if you don't....

    The big thing with Panda is that they are going after duplicate content and poor quality content. If changing the URL structure or redirecting everything to the new domoan or subdomain works, it will probably only be a temporary fix at best. Crappy content is still crappy content, no matter where it appears.

    I'm more concerned about their November 3 update, which some sites are calling Google Fresh. That appears like it will be demoting ranking for stagant content and sites that do not regularly add content, and that in itself could be a disaster for most business sites that do not regularly add content.

    Giving you fresher, more recent search results

    Someone over at search engine watch thinks this will affect 35% of sites, which makes it potentially big. As we have seen too many times in the past, collateral damage can hit almost any site.
