Google Panda Update 2.5 – What's the Heck about it? DaniWeb Got Hit

Google has confirmed that the latest series of its Panda algorithm update is now live for websites. Based on Google’s tracking of the algorithm changes, the new Google Panda Update 2.5 is the latest one and it promises goodies for some bloggers while it is going to hurt other bloggers as well, one example of that one is my friend, Vikas, said he is not happy the way Google Panda update is happening. Also, one of my friends too, Atish made this claim on Facebook as thus:

“Google Panda 2.5 update is Like the blessings from Google To My site I got maximum traffic on 29th september and Now yesterday’s visits broke that record and Now on daily basis traffic is increasing day by day.” You can read Atish post on this here

google panda update 2.5 Is Back!

Google has refused to states exactly about what types of website this update is going to affect to share any specifics about what types of sites, pages or content this update targeted at, but, instead Google shares the same company’s default statement that reads:

“We’re continuing to iterate on our Panda algorithm as part of our commitment to returning high-quality sites to Google users. This most recent update is one of the roughly 500 changes we make to our ranking algorithms each year”

WebProNews reported earlier yesterday morning that Google has rolled out update as at last week Wednesday, September 28 which many don’t know anything about until when they start getting the negative side of the story. This Google panda update version is the longest of its succession which took many times for google to roll it out.

  1. Thanks for the quote daniel. Yes there was a great increase in traffic after panda update. this quote is taken from my FB status. thanks olwale for considering me here.

  2. Panda Update effected reputed sites including Prnewswire and others. May be they have lost huge amount of traffic and deteriorated their performance graph , but i think its wont last longer.Soon will be recovered.

  3. Thank you for the information on Change in search Google Algorithms, although some will loss there are those who will win as well and losers will have to improve their contents. As there is need to control search result to ensure people who search are getting the best information.
