Most of you probably already know this, but for those who haven’t had a chance to catch up with your blog and forum reading today, Google update Panda has been rolled out to the rest of the world. The announcement on the Google Webmaster Blog is here.
Update Panda went live in the US a few weeks ago and many sites were hit badly, with some webmasters reporting a loss of up to 80% of their traffic, even for well established websites that have been around for years.
The update was designed to significantly remove low quality websites from the index (or simply score high quality websites differently) and seems to have had a wide impact in the SEO community.
Happy to report that so far anyway, I haven’t seen any impact from the update, other than a few rankings improving here and there. Next to no impact on traffic levels.
Has anyone had a site that’s been hit that would care to share the details? I’m sure any SEO types hanging out here would be happy to offer some feedback on issues you’re having with your business websites.
