Looks like the Panda has arrived. But it's moving at a glacial speed. So far, so good.
"On Friday, Google confirmed that it had finally begun rolling out a Panda refresh the prior weekend. The refresh will take “a few months” to complete, according to the company." Read more...
"1/3 search views is now to an edited Hub. Pretty cool. We are seeing very nice growth in how happy readers are with Hubs:)" Paul Edmondson
"If you're curious about this panda update, site wide google traffic is up about 6%." Paul Edmondson
Really? Looks like I have to be patient then... At the moment, no change in my traffic really... Maybe it's because I don't have that much hubs. But still, the hubs getting passive traffic for over a year have not undergone any special spike or anything.
So far not seeing any improvements in Google search. To the contrary. The search results are very bad quality. I did a search for keywords I track for my site and I am nowhere to be found. I was on the first page. Now the results show 3 links for the same site in position 1 thru 3, and 2 links to the same site for position 4-5. Basically, the top 5 positions are taken by 2 sites.
That is not what I a call a quality search result. I can see where people might be switching over to Yahoo or Bing for better search results if they don't correct this. That is very disappointing.
Also...when did Google stop showing pics beside websites in the search results?
Most of Google searches on the first page seem to go to one ones who pay the most for that privilege.
I also see old outdated information and lots of spun material.I agree that G is not filtering out the junk.
Huh?? My pageviews is at its lowest today!! What a let down! Got used to this already. Sorry, not much hope from me.

Google panda is basically a major tweak in search engine algorithm. Its aim is to push the quality web-site up and lower down the ranking of low quality content. Unlike all previous update, Google panda is a domain...
