    Still being relatively new, can someone explain what is "Panda" and what is the function of Panda?

    What is "Panda" and how, in your opinion, did it affect Hubpage earnings negatively?

    It was a Google Algorithm update (the thingy that effects search results) that happened many, many months ago (maybe 1.5+/- years ago?).  Its original intent, by what I could tell, was to penalize what they call "content farms."  I briefly spoke about such things, on a Hub I wrote a while back, here:    http://insanemundane.hubpages.com/hub/s … -blogspots

    Google changes its algorithms over 300 times per year. However big algorithm updates are usually given a name. Panda originally happened in Feb '11 but the algorithm is still run every month or so.

    However the new algorithm change is called Penguin, and that's what people are more worried about now.

    The original panda saw many users lose between 50-80% of their traffic - however HP brought in stricter rules and subdomains and *most* people regained their traffic and earnings.
