Google Panda Update 3.1: “Minor” One Made Live On November 18th
Google tweeted that they have pushed out a minor update to the Google Panda algorithm this past Friday afternoon.
The update impacts less than one-percent of searches, which is why Google labelled this a “minor” update.
Google is making a conscious effort to provide more weather reports for when they do major of minor updates with the search algorithm.
