    What is Panda?

    I keep reading about something referred to as Panda in the forums, could someone enlighten me please, as I can't even begin to guess what it is.

    Panda is an updated form of Google's search algorithm. Basically, it chooses where pages show up when a Google search for relevant keywords is made. It's a big deal for Hubpages and similar sites because the algorithm is geared toward punishing 'content farms,' and many sites like this experienced massive traffic drops because of it.

    Hubpages has been working to fix this and get into Google's good graces again, but a lot of people are still seeing little to no traffic.

    This is a great question as I had no idea exactly what Panda was either. An excellent answer from Gofygure - since Panda was introduced I've seen a major difference in the amount of visits to my hubs.
