Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 184.108.40.206
The Google Fred Update which we first spotted rolling out early morning on March 8th seems to be fairly big. After reviewing well over 70 sites that were hit by this update, 95% of them share two things in common. The sites all seem content driven, either blog formats or other content like sites and they all are pretty heavy on their ad placement. In fact, if I dare say, it looks like many (not all but many) of them were created with the sole purpose of generating AdSense or other ad income without necessarily benefiting the user.

Why did these sites rank to begin with?

@reseller, there is one big change now to panda. It doesnīt count for big brands though.
i thought panda was supposed to be part of the everyday algo now.
i didn't think they ran it periodically anymore -- it just runs every day, like everything else.
