New Panda Rolling Out

    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.

    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.

    Things are slowly declining but it's hard to say whether it's because of this.
