|SEO Tutorial - Google Panda Algorithm|
Three of the most remarkable changes that have happened within the last few years are the Panda algorithm, the Penguin algorithm and Hummingbird algorithm. But many updates have happened with Panda Algorithm updates.
Panda Algorithm: Panda first launched on February 23, 2011. It was a great deal. The intention of Panda was to try to show high-quality sites higher in SERPs and degrade sites that might be of lower quality. This algorithm change had been unnamed when it first arrived on the scene, and many of people called it the "Farmer" update as it seemed to affect content farms. Content farms are sites that gather information from many sources, often stealing that information from other sites, in order to create large numbers of pages while using sole purpose of ranking well in Google for a lot of different keywords. However, it affected a numerous number of sites. The algorithm change had been eventually officially named after one of its creators, Navneet Panda.
Influence of the Panda Algorithm: We knew by the last SEO Tutorials about White Hat SEO and Black Hat SEO that there are some rules for Search Engine Optimization and Google has also some specific rules and regulations for SEO. White Hat SEO is done by following these guidelines or regulations properly, but Black Hat SEO does not follow these guidelines and by unethical process it tries to gain page rank by making the search engines fool. In this situation, Google has taken some effective steps so that only quality websites with relevant content can gain top ranking in Google and low quality websites can be penalized. Google reinforced by taking some influencers algorithm updates like Panda Updates.
The Last Panda 4.2 Update: Every year, Google changes its search algorithm around 500–600 times. While most of these types of changes are minor, Google occasionally rolls out a "major" algorithmic update that affects search results significantly. Google’s Gary Illyes said about the last update that the Panda algorithm, Panda 4.2 (Update 29), that began rolling out around July 18, 2015, is still rolling out (2–3% of queries were affected; confirmed, announced).
Actually Panda Update is a search filter that restricts to the low quality websites and brings the high quality website with relevant content on the top of the SERPs.
Dear friends, I shall discuss later that how to maintain the algorithm updates in my Organic SEO Tutorial. The next SEO Tutorial is Google Penguin Algorithm. Until then, stay with us. Thanks all.
