Google Panda Update 4.1 in 2014

September 26, 2014
Google has announced that the latest version of its Panda Update — a filter designed to penalize “thin” or poor content from ranking well — has been released.

Google said in a post on Google+ that a “slow rollout” began earlier this week and will continue into next week, before being complete. Google said that depending on location, about 3%-to-5% of search queries will be affected.

Google says, it will allow more high-quality small and medium-sized sites to rank better.

Some of the example for direct traffic since Panda update (can also be due to other website related issues too):

Some websites where drops has been noticed:

Domain     Before     After   Change in %
yellow.com  16383 3413 -79%
similarsites.com  118771 25197 -79%
free-coloring-pages.com  12268 296 -76%
dwyer-inst.com  13225 3229 -76%
issitedownrightnow.com  69354 18376 -74%
updatestar.com  13232 3788 -71%
office365.com  29365 8781 -70%

 

Some websites where improvement has been noticed:

    Domain     Before     After   Change in %
comdotgame.com  2632 38231 1353%
hongkiat.com  135 68372 406%
babble.com  8963 42916 379%
rd.com  17209 71434 315%
mediamass.net  6839 27876 308%
hotelguides.com  8563 32957 285%
yourtango.com  30624 109148 256%
moreofit.com  6431 22864 256%
celebrity-gossip.net  10727 38068 255%
spoonful.com  2813 89573 218%

The rollout also means that new sites not previously hit by Panda might get impacted.

As a conclusion with searchmetrics.com, drops has been seen with the websites which are often games or lyrics portals as well as websites dealing with medical issues and content – to cut it short (here I am repeating myself): in general, it hit pages with thin content.
