So I had the good fortune to get some face time with Mr Cutts, and considering Panda is the main thing affecting me at the moment, it was oriented mainly around that.
I know some of it has already been discussed, speculated and thought before, but this is from the horses mouth:
- its just an algo, any site can get out of it.
- he would not confirm what the factors they are looking for, other than on page factors, or if there even are - my interpretation was that they are potentially monitoring bounce rates, time on site, pageviews per visitor, and social factors.
- it was targeted at content farmers but has gone much further than that.
Amit also said as rule to what a quality site is - is if you wanted your children to learn about something, this is the site that you would send them to.
