What is Google Panda?
What is Google Panda? I read this word for many times, but know nothing about it.
Wow, there's soi much info on Google Panda on Hubpages already because of the impact it had on hubpages.
It was an update to the Google search algorithm which included an attempt to weed out low quality editorial content, especially duplicate content and content farms. That hit Hubpages and to a lesser extent Squidoo because people use them for SEO purposes (which is legit) by copying in poor content (which isn't).
It came out Feb 2011, and since then Hubpages has implemented a set of changes to ensure content is better quality, and most people think the traffic has improved again (based on hubs talking about it - I wasn't on Hubpages when Panda hit).

A horrible disaster of a concept that Google cooked up to shake up the Internet world.
Not really, as already stated, search the Hubs for more info - there's plenty of it to be found.

So far, I've lost about 15% of my traffic, since Panda 3.3 began rolling out earlier this week! It's annoying as I'd only just brought some traffic back up by editing and deleting Amazon hubs after a post-Xmas slump that I've struggled to get out of! It feels like Google wants to keep...
