925: new post   Panda 20 Full Update 2012-09-27 - mixes with EMD changes
Google has confirmed a full update to their Panda algorithm (not just a data refresh) that was launched at the day before their Exact Match Domain adjustment. Throw in an Image Search update two days later, and analysis of any traffic changes last weekend can get pretty demanding!

927: new post   Panda Metric : Google Usage of User Engagement Metrics
I am continually surprised at some in the community that point to a couple of individual metrics as 'the ones' that caused xyz to happen in the most recent update. I think it is time to look at the greater picture of data that Google has available.[br][br]Eric Enge had a presentation at PubCon Austin that he felt Panda pumped up 20% user engagment metrics into the algo. It really got me thinking about this aspect indepth. I started to put together a list of possible data sources google could use as metrics (signals), and I was pretty surprised at how large a list it became with very little effort.
