At the beginning of last week, we at WebiMax started seeing another wave of movements in search engine rankings that suggested to us Panda 2.2 update was live. Unannounced at first, Google now confirmed today that this was in fact the case. Although we’ve all known that the update would be arriving shortly, no one knew exactly when it would happen.
The interesting part of Panda 2.2 is that Google did not officially release a news release or report on their blog the exact paramaters of the update. Not much is being said, in fact, their almost making it sound as though this update is just one of the many that are made each year. The only piece of the puzzle they revealed is that they are trying to address the issue of “:Scraper sites”, websites that basically republish others content and make profits that way.
At WebiMax, we welcome the changes, and we have actually signed more clients because of Panda. It’s making people run from their SEO firms that use black-hat optimization and flock to the ethical SEO firms out there.
