If they are doing 500 algo updates a year (2 to 3 per day, according to MC), and we've only been told about the two Penguins, some of the Pandas, and the EMD update, that's, perhaps, 5% of all algo updates that we get confirmation of.
Yes, but not all updates are created equal. I've always considered the "500 changes a year" sorts of numbers to be a marketing thing, not an algo thing. It reminds me of the days when search engines fought about who had the biggest index count.
