    So many Pandas and what was it really all about? An attempt to clean up and organize the web by ridding link farms? That thought process alone is saying that all link farms were bad. I remember the day when I enjoyed following webrings; they led from one great site to another and they all linked to one another. But that posed an issue for search engines, didn’t it? The reader didn’t have need to return to the main search, wiping out the potential for ad clicking.

    But oh – what about the duplicate content thing, as well as theiving of original content, which supposedly was part of the Panda. Now we must join Google + to claim right to our content?? I’ve seen many videos encouraging this, as well as the signature photos that are placed in search, claiming they will increase traffic as the photo draws attention to content. But what happens when everyone has a photo posted?

    I think that Google gets the most benefit out of everything it does, from Panda to Penguin.

    I am pretty much surprised with this updates, Google Panda 3.9 is about poor content, which also indicates less content or irrelevant content, i am surprised because i have fill my whole site up with the huge content but still i have seen downfall in my site :s, is this updates really implemented in the right way.

    Thanks for posting this one. I actually hadn’t paid close enough attention. I was out on vacation and was away from social media. 1% of queries can be so much considering how huge the search engine is. Luckily, I did not experience many changes – obviously, since I didn’t even notice! ;)

    Hey Nandita,

    Did you hear of anyone being affected by Panda 3.9? I didn’t even notice an update and haven’t heard much about it from anyone. Usually there’s a lot of fuss in forums and such when an update rolls out. Perhaps everyone has already been hit by previous Panda updates.
