Panda is bad, maybe crippling news for link and content fakers, farmers, spammers and their customers.
How is this bad? Are you sure this is the only demographic this update hit negatively?
If you've been getting away with buying links from a quick-buck, automated link broker, Panda -- probably sooner than later � is likely to flush your rankings down the tube along with the rankings of all the other "fish" on that broker's sucker list.
From my research and experience, Panda is not closely associated with the type of inbound links built and more squarely purposed to assess content quality and potentially layout quality.
Are you over your paranoia regarding relevant link exchange?
No, we rarely do it, thus the lack of paranoia, if there were paranoia to be had :)
