Pierre Far from Google UK announce in a Google+ post that Google’s 27th Panda update rolled-out earlier in the week. The Panda updated is aimed at detecting low-quality sites; sites with thin, low or no content.
Search Engine Land is calling the update Panda 4.1 and the pattern of Panda roll outs can be seen at their Panda announcement article.
It’s algorithm updates like these that make me happy. Happy to know that the crappy SEO specialists, with tons of old-school methods are being weened out.
SEO gets a bad reputation because most companies fail to evolve with advancement of the search engine and because of this, thousands upon thousand of local businesses lose money money to useless SEO.
