Panda Series : What The Heck is Google Panda?

Google Panda turns from single word to a nightmare once it slaps a blog/website. Google Panda is the new search algorithm brought in by Google to eliminate unqualified ie. sites with low content and bring up sites with original content up in the search.

Panda can take your blog to great heights while it can show you the worst days of your blogs, so I thought to share a series of posts on Google Panda coming up in the upcoming days which will clear all your doubts about Google Panda.

The algorithm with the motive of de- evaluating the copied content, low quality content and sites with high bounce rate was introduced by Google in 2011 to fight spam and get the quality websites on the top. Panda rolls out its update after every 5-7 weeks updating the results in Google taking the copied sites down and sites with original content up in the Search Engine Rankings.

The Official One Liner that comes up from Google for Google Panda and its updates are :

Trust us. We’re putting the bad guys on one side, and the good guys on the other

Named after an engineer Navneet Panda , the Google Panda is an artificial mechanism to fight the sites with duplicate content .

The reaction to the Google Rocket – The Google Panda is a mixed one with many agitations as well as cheers to Google. The problem remains with Google as it is not explaining the mechanism of Google Panda and many webmasters still don’t know ” What is Google Panda?” . About it being good or bad for me, I’ll say in the upcoming days you would know the hook and the crook of the Google Panda.
