Interesting that they chose to lower the rankings of low-quality sites versus improving the rankings of high-quality sites.
Improving the ranking of good sites is their bread-and-butter. That's the main algo.
Improving the ranking of good sites is their bread-and-butter. That's the main algo. The negative scoring* parts target the people who "fake" quality.
This is the least amount of discussion about a Panda update (refresh) ever
Does anybody see a complete bias with e-commerce on branded products to reviews?
I think I'm seeing that the only thing that counts in ranking are the high volumes of reviews. The more reviews, the higher the site - more or less. Naturally, the brand is at the top.
Doesn't seem like a good user experience as there is insufficient variety on other quality elements, like supporting information and UI. Seems to conflict with the intentions of Panda.
