    New Google Panda Update Approved, On the Way

    Google’s Matt Cutts spoke in a Q&A session with Danny Sullivan at SMX Advanced this week, and discussed the Panda update, among other things.
    A lot of sites have been critical of Google for returning results that are scraped versions of their orignal content. Cutts is quoted as saying in a liveblog of the session, “A guy on my team [is] working on that issue. A change has been approved that should help with that issue. We’re continuing to iterate on Panda. The algorithm change originated in search quality, not the web spam team.”
    He says there’s another change coming soon, and that he still doesn’t know when Panda will be launched fully internationally (in other languages). He also says they haven’t made any manual exceptions with Panda.
    You may recall that the Mac blog Cult of Mac was hit by the original Panda update, and then after exchanging some dialogue with Google the site ended up getting some new traffic. Matt says, however, “We haven’t made any manual exceptions. Cult of Mac might have been confused because they started getting all this new traffic from blogging about it, but we haven’t made any manual exceptions.”
    Yesterday we looked at some poll results from Search Engine Roundtable that found 4% of sites were saying they had fully recovered from the Panda update. Some other sites have been finding partial recovery.

    Panda 4 really? LOL

    I've never seen anything like that when they were doing an algorithm update. Have you?

    This is interesting: "We’re continuing to iterate on Panda. The algorithm change originated in search quality, not the web spam team"

    Man, what a Panda story lol

    I am starting to see the spamming sites back, ranking high after the 4th panda version. It is hilarious, it seems like the dragon heads have been cut.

    Another Matt Cutts quote from the same article: “The general rule is to push stuff out and then find additional signals to help differentiate on the spectrum.” So, this statement basically sums up the multiple Panda updates. Officially, the latest version is Panda 2.2.

    The only thing that I can say is to review Google's guidance on quality:
    Official Google Webmaster Central Blog: More guidance on building high-quality sites

    Google prefers to deal will issues algorithmically as opposed to making manual adjustments. So, I would guess that after Panda they will tackle other quality issues.

    Honestly, update after update I see some of my pages ranking up and down. I also saw many sites disappeared by the couple first Google algorithm updates and then resuscitated recently.

    I found curious that two teams (Quality and Spam) are working on this new Panda thing and provide controversial results that seems to hit many people.

    We already talk about that with a few members and we all agree that we shouldn't rely too much on Google. I keep posting the news on this because more they change the way of ranking and more they create problems.

    Regarding this link I have already posted New Google Panda Update Approved, On the Way | WebProNews
    you can see their estimation is around 73% that did not recovered from Panda, pretty big number in my opinion.

    I am really wondering how accurate are these algorithm updates.

    Hi,

    IMO it won't be, it will be sad, but I fell all it is going to do is drive some webmasters crazy trying to find out what they should change and by the time they think they have it understood Big G will change the algorithm again

    It doesn't help that after you make changes to the web site you wont see results until the next update (which may introduce new subtle rules too).

    I wonder where is the traffic from these 73% sites going to now.

    They definitely seem to be breaking new ground.
