I predict they'll slowly abandon Panda or run it less and less.
Maybe they should concentrate on being a REAL clean search engine again.
5 months ago (!) I sent DMCAs to websites that copied content. The website owners deleted the violating pages almost immediately. However, those non-existant pages are still in Google's index.
Also, when I enter a cetain 2 words seach term (80 million results), a term that also my kids could enter, the second result on Google is a URL that starts with f*ck and it directs me to a website with crap text and some nudity. Is this quality after Panda? It probably is because that website gets a lot of "long clicks" from people that want to check many pages to find more nudity. Probably a low bounce rate and many page views! The fact alone that the "f*ck" word is in the URL should ring a bell.
I reported this site to Google more than 2 months ago, and of course it is still there.
