New data refresh of Panda starts rolling out tonight. ~1% of search results change enough to notice. More context: http://goo.gl/huekf

Thanks Suzanneh

Failures, hardly* First hand experience with Panda and we'll be a better site because of it. It's about time folks had to care more about user experience on their sites rather than raw traffic numbers.

*Every algo adjustment has some collateral damage, they always have, always will. 

The lesson is learning how to market your site well to encourage direct traffic and repeat visits and become less dependent upon one-and-done search traffic

I'm laughing at the whiners who keep saying Penguin was a failure and Google will roll it back. LOL Updates probably. Rolling back? Probably not.

Now I'm sure the company I work for will take another hit and they won't listen to me. It's interesting to watch from the inside.

Parkin is just butt-hurt and thinks anyone actually cares about his drivel.

Personally I'm seeing much improved search results myself and since we actually have quality websites, no damage from penguin or panda, including the site that got spammed with links from someone trying 'negative SEO', we got a boost of a few position for a few weeks from that before going back to where we where previously.
