What in the name of Google is a “Panda” (infographic)

Estimated reading time: 0 minutes, 22 seconds

When there wasn’t a Google Plus yet we all were talking about SEO, remember that? And the most talked about topic at that time was the Panda Update. What happened? How can we fix it, how can we prevent it from hitting us? It all seems like ages ago. Some even suggested that Google+ was all about taking our eyes away from Panda. Just to give you a reminder of what the Panda Update was.

      Just wanted to alert you there are some type’s in the above infographic. The Panda timeline is talking about many obervers.observers and scraper detectiontion (which probably would have made the Panda unhappy if this had been crawlable html).

      Delete comment after fixing, thx!

      • we corrected the errors on our site’s image. tks for notifying us.

  • Wasn’t Google reading data from tweets mythbusted?

    • I don’t think that anyone could confirm this 100%.
      I truly doubt it, that Google does not use this data. Why shouldn’t they ? They had acces to Twitter Firehose until not long ago.
