As previously mentioned in another of my posts Penguin have rekeased a refresh to their algorithm. Now in hot persuit and music to most peoples ears, that the Panda update/refresh we’ve been waiting for for 8 months+ now is just about to be released.
No definative time frame has been mentioned but expectations are that the next Panda data refresh should be coming out within the next upcoming weeks according to Google’s Gary Illyes. It has been suggested to be as soon as within the next two to four weeks.
This will not necessarily be an algorithm update, where they change the signals of the Panda algorithm like we saw with 4.0 but rather Google just refreshing the underlining data of the algorithm.
What will it mean?
Well potentially new sites could be hit but also those sites who have cleaned up their act will have a chance to repent and recover.
