What Exactly Is The Google Panda Update?
Before I explain this to you, I really need to make sure you know what Google is. Google Inc. is an American multinational corporation specializing in Internet-related services and products. These include search, cloud computing, software and online advertising technologies. (Taken from Wikipedia)
Google Search (or Google Web Search) is a web search engine owned by Google Inc. Google Search is the most-used search engine on the World Wide Web, receiving several hundred million queries each day through its various services. (Taken from Wikipedia)
Google’s mission is “to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful,” and its unofficial slogan was, “Don’t be evil.” (Taken from Wikipedia) The way Google accomplishes that mission is by creating what is called the Google Algorithm.
Google knows you want quick answers and not millions and trillions of websites in front of you. So they have created an algorithm to do that, algorithms are computer programs that look for clues to give you exactly what you want. And there is where Google focuses the updates. Google wants to give you the best possible answer as quickest as possible.
Now talking about the Panda; I will not be technical here. I just want you to know what in the world the famous Panda update is all about. I just want you to say: Yes, I know what Panda is and I will not let that silly animal slap my website up.
Sometimes Google names theiralgorithm updates after names. The Google Panda is a change Google
made to their algorithm released in February 2011. The purpose was to reward top search engine rankings all “higher-quality sites” and to lower the rank of “low-quality sites.”
It caused a surge in the rankings of news and social networking websites and a drop in rankings for sites containing a lot of advertising.
So now that you understand what Google and their algorithm is all about, you can now say that the Google Panda is an update made to care more for High Quality Sites and care less for Low Quality sites.
When you think on the Google Panda just think on “Highly Quality Site.” That’s all you need to think about it so you don’t get overwhelmed about all of the content about the topic.
Google has made several changes to their Panda update since February 2011. Google shares information as well on “What counts as a high-quality site.” Twenty-three bullet points is that Google itself says will help webmasters like you and me to rank well in today’s Google Search Engine.
Let me outline those 23 bullet points right away in the next subject.
