    Due to the (almost global) Launch of Google Panda Update today, will I recommend you to add an annotation in Google Analytics, that says \Panda Update Global\ today. It’ll help you analyze the affect of the panda update in the future!

    Have a great weekend!

    Vanessa,

    Although this update was focused on international languages, would I be correct in assuming that the full Panda algorithm was manually ran? In other words, if an English website made significant improvements since the Panda 2.3 update, could it potentially see lift from this International update?

    Ideibler, I believe that’s correct.

    Please, please dub this Panda 3.0. Such a trivial point but I’m tired of seeing Panda “2.x” (and all the 2.Xes should really have been 1.Xes anyway).

    I didn’t dub it any number :)

    So do you feel it’s ONLY for non-English sites or should English sites feel the heat as well? And has Google confirmed what many of us suspect — that Pandalyzed sites don’t pass as much link value?

    Many American sites depending on low-quality forum profile links in foreign languages may suddenly lose rankings. Shouldn’t they be concerned?

    To that extent, is it realy iPANDA 1.0?

    Google said that this update includes some small English tweaks. I haven’t seen them confirm one way or another if/how Panda impacts link value, but it would seem to make sense to me that the value of outgoing links from sites hit by Panda may decline, since the idea of link value is partially based on the authority of the linking site.

    Too bad Google rolled out the Panda 2.4 update and the changes to Google Analytics at almost exactly the same time. It was hard enough to figure out the impact of Panda updates on a site a few days ago; now it’s just about impossible.

    In my opinion, Google is doing a great job by bringing these updates. Had these updates not been around, Internet would be full of spam by Now.
    I am really grateful to everyone at Google.
    Thank you very much
