Tweeted by Google:
New data refresh of Panda starts rolling out tonight. ~1% of search results change enough to notice. More context: [goo.gl...]

[searchengineland.com...]

Hmmm... three straight data refreshes with no algorithm change [webmasterworld.com]. They must be essentially satisfied with the way Panda is working now.

I hope so! That at least gives those of us hit by Panda a fighting chance to improve instead of making it a constantly moving target. We've shown small but encouraging recoveries from the last 2 updates so I'm hopeful that this one will show at least the same.

Fingers Crossed.


Indeed.

I was waiting for this tweet.

Let's see what happens tonight.

This will take about a week to roll out completely? It seems like low traffic sites improve at the beginning of the roll out then drop back into place 4-5 days later.

Definitely hoping for recovery!

I have sweat bullets trying to improve content and navigation on my site. I already see a slight increase in traffic, although I am not entirely sure if it's Panda or just me trying to be optimistic.

Well that certainly explains the sudden increase in spidering on our site.

Fingers Crossed, lets see what happen tonight, I think hopefully we can see the effect almost after 10 to 12 hours of the update. Google will def, the bugs they had in their system this time.

Looking to Alexa, some major article directories were affected badly but you never can tell for sure.

It was sooooo dead quiet the last 4-5 days...almost felt like a number of major internet transatlantic cables have been cut off... well this New data refresh that affects only ~1% explains it...

yet again...

Alexa stats are not real-time, so you probably won't see any effects there until a day or two have passed. Case in point: the traffic graph of the official website for Amelia Earheart (Google honored her with a doodle yesterday, her 115th birthday) shows no changes.

It's rolled out here in the UK. Significant changes for me.... for the better.

@Petehall - I see no change in my UK serps at present. I'll be quite miffed if I see no improvement, considering the large amount of onsite changes I've made, which have all been crawled and indexed.

Already gained 4 % traffic so far .. End of the day it may be 8 to 10 % gain.

@themaninthejar I see little change across many verticals, however one site in particular has seen a huge increase.

Seeing some about.com crap moving on up the list today. One niche I watch has an about article in the number 2 spot this morning for the main keyword in the niche. Calling it an article is being VERY generous, it's 1 paragraph, 72 words of really bad content. Funny, more adsense content than real content...

No change one way or the other on my Pandalized site. I was really hoping for some good news.

With Panda update how long can I wait and still hope for something positive with this update or have I lost once again and have to wait till next update.

@zeus My observations of these last two years of algo changes (and Google hints) is that the highest traffic sites get the updates first and it trickles down to the lower traffic sites after 4-5 days. I can't claim a high end traffic site but the low end ones will usually see an improvement right up front as busier sites get hit (and I say YAY) then at the end of the week those little sites get hit (and I say OHHH). Somewhere in the process, some sites that were in the SERPs with us washed out and someone else shows up.

Low end threshold guess is under 5000-1000 uniques a day.

Like everyone else I'll be waiting to see what the effect is. While some sites have seen slight recovery some rankings primarily due to deoptimization, I have seen many folks blaming Google Panda/Penguin when it isn't their rankings or traffic -- it is the economy slowing dramatically. I see lower stats on most sites I work on. Things are just plain old slow...

why should a slowdown in economy bring the traffic down to info. sites? These animals do not attack the eCommerce sites alone. They inflict more damage on info sites. In any case, search traffic shouldn't be affected at-least to the pure content based sites. So yours doesn't sound like a good reason at all...

Here in my UK sector the usual big gorilla in multiple number one positions which has a few plain vanilla words about products it doesn't sell and affiliate links to sites that do sell these products (and which are buried way down the SERPs; they are 'information' sites after all) continues to be given a tighter grip only today it has more than one entry for most products I looked at from the multiple pages it spews out, all with virtually the same content. If I did this the site would be penalised - and quite rightly. Quality? Sorry Googlers, your algo has a long way to go.

Not noticed any improvement yet. Though when I was hit by Panda in January, it wasn't until the evening of the 19th, that we were hit.

I'm 99% sure I've found the reason we were hit by Panda but I fear I fixed it a little too late, to recover in this update. I expect I'll have to wait until the next.

superclown2 - same in my category which is more image related, the no.1 has 6 images links on front which also go to internal pages, the rest 20 points to other low quality sites and its on the whole site. Panda has 100% not made the rankings better since april 2011. When I search for more complicated things, I get 0 results I can use, google must also have noticed that, something is not right the last years time, its as if they focus on other things then good results. like example pharma industry they dont want to heal you but want you to take that one pill rest of your life, thats what makes it complicated.

indyank... My humble apologies for not clarifying eCom sites... Of course, info sites would not be effected by the economy.

Interesting that they chose to lower the rankings of low-quality sites versus improving the rankings of high-quality sites.
