Google Panda Algorithm Update

What Is The Google Panda Update?

Google’s Panda Update is a search filter introduced in February 2011 meant to stop sites with poor quality content from working their way into Google’s top search results. Panda is updated from time-to-time. When this happens, sites previously hit may escape, if they’ve made the right changes. Panda may also catch sites that escaped before. A refresh also means “false positives” might get released.



For the record, here’s the list of confirmed Panda Updates, with some of the major changes called out with their AKA (also known as) names:
