Google Panda - a word which most of SEO’s are afraid about. It's always good to know that "Panda and penguin updates are making the web better". Most of the websites will effect by these algorithm changes due to low quality content as well as spamy back links.


Google’s announced that another Panda Update is being unleashed on its results, one that it says will impact 0.7% of queries. We’re calling it Panda 3.92, through we’re wondering if it’s time to declare Panda 4.0 upon us.

Here’s the official news from Google:

Panda refresh is rolling out—expect some flux over the next few days. Less than 0.7% of queries noticeably affected: https://twitter.com/google/status/248060554227367936
As per the above tweet only 0.7% of the Google search results will be effected. We (SEO's & website owners) might not worry more about this query if you have good quality content on your website. Google has made 20 panda updates till now by targeting poor content.
