It was announced today that a slow progressing Panda update is rolling out. We've been waiting for it. After reading the little that has been published and talking with folks, this seems like a very different Panda to me. One that rolls out slowly, and my best guess is it will blend in with the next update, so we won't see these big increases or decreases over night.

It's too early to tell how this will impact high quality pages. My hope is for the Hubbers that have worked hard on their pages and the folks that have been through HubPro will see a steady rise in traffic as Panda rolls out. I'll share more as we get more data.
I'll be very interested to see how subdomains on HubPages are affected during this roll out. Good luck HP. You guys worked hard for this.
Thanks for the update and heads up, Paul. I guess time will tell, huh?
Since June 23, I've had three noticeable spikes of traffic but they last pretty much exactly 24-48 hours. I assume those were just tests. I know google has to stay ahead of the spammers in order to return relevant search results, but some of this data is difficult for most people to interpret. I found google's search easier to use and more accurate 5 years ago.
Like Google said, this appears to be a slow rollout. Each day I can see small changes (mostly positive). Hopefully, in two to three weeks, we will have more trend data.
I don't think I agree. Two to three weeks is about the time it normally takes for ANY update to roll out around the world. People in the USA - and especially California might see results sooner than some people but that doesn't mean to say it's actually rolled out
When they say "slow roll out" I take that to mean that this time they're going to inspect results as they go and do tweaks to refine it.
My guess is a couple of months before it settles down........
Why else call it a SLOW roll out?
Thank you, Paul Edmondson. I am sure we will all be watching the next "two to three weeks" ahead with hopeful hearts.
If I don't see the usual major traffic upswing after Labor Day, then as far as I'm concerned the writing is on the tombstone.
Overall my traffic has decreased but I'm getting alot more international viewers. I'm not sure if this is particularly good since adsense weighs all countries differently, with the u.s. bringing in the most money.
Not again! I hope it comes out good for my blog. Thanks for the heads up, Paul.
Things are slowly declining but it's hard to say whether it's because of this.

For anyone seeing a sudden dip or rise in traffic, be aware that Panda is rampaging again:http://searchengineland.com/panda-update-rolling-204313This may be good news for some who lost traffic in the August update, and it will be bad news for others.

I have kept quiet about this for a while now, but after the Panda update I saw my traffic drop a little then normalize (as expected after any Google update).However since I made the changes required by Hubpages (and I assume changes enforced upon everybody else) I have seen steadily declining...

Hey folks. I'm a long time member here and an SEO guy by trade. I love this platform and want to support it. I've been digging into Panda data, and I have a few suggestions. Let's work together and 'right the ship!' 1) Start a brand new account today. Fresh content is what Hubpages needs. Google...

The recent Panda update produced a typical change in traffic for HP shown below.I have often wondered why the change is so immediate and consistent. As shown in the image below it would suggest that the change is not the sum of all the changes in quality rating and/or penalties applied to all the...
