It’s been a year since the first Google Panda update rolled out – February 24, 2011 – that caused a stir among webmasters and SEOs all over the world, especially the online publishing sector. Google announced that they have done a data refresh of the Google Panda algorithm about a week ago, and added that there were no additional signals or algorithm changes. This was only a data refresh.
On the latest Panda update, Google said:
“This launch refreshes data in the Panda system, making it more accurate and more sensitive to recent changes on the web.”
