I suggest the folks to start assessing their Panda remedial works based on the current results of the above mentioned 3 updates
There's this "grey" area of quality related updates. But for the sake of Panda let's say we're only talking about " on page " factors.
So for this i only count the "Ads above the fold " change -
What i accept very much, is that distinguishing between components of quality and an iteration is going to get harder as time marches on.
Still, isolating those changes is essential, but I'm still a sceptic that they can be classified as Panda updates , until we hear otherwise from Google or from a lot more folks. There's still not enough reaction on the threads and I've seen nothing over the sites that we monitor which have all been in remedial works for many months to convinces me that we have had a Panda update recently.
Happy to hear otherwise, not so happy to accept as sites we're relying on for improvements haven't moved.
