|918:|| Why Haven't Sites Recovered from Panda? Google Tries to Explain |
In an exchange with Danny Sullivan during the keynote at SMX Advanced conference, Matt Cutts made some comments that address the topic of why sites haven't recovered, even if they don't exactly "explain" the reason:[br][br]DS: Has it changed enough that some people have recovered? Or is it too soon? [br][br]MC: The general rule is to push stuff out and then find additional signals to help differentiate on the spectrum. We haven't done any pushes that would directly pull things back. We have recomputed data that might have impacted some sites. There's one change that might affect sites and pull things back. [br][br]DS: You guys made this post with 22 questions, but it sounds like you're saying even if you've done that, it wouldn't have helped yet? [br][br]MC: It could help as we recompute data. Matt goes on to say that Panda 2.2 has been approved but hasn't rolled out yet.
