You may have heard about the Panda update by Google, but might not be sure what it is or what it is set to accomplish. To fully understand it, reviewing some of the search engine optimization (SEO) basics is a must to realize why this algorithm change is needed.
To enhance a website’s visibility, SEO techniques are used. Some SEO firms found ways to optimize a site through false means by tricking the algorithm used for search queries. This technique is called “black-hat SEO” and it is because of this that Google began making aggressive and necessary changes. These alterations correct the situation of how poorly constructed and falsely optimized pages are on the top of search engines instead of ones with quality original content.
Panda is one of the algorithm changes that Google uses to catch websites with poor quality. It penalizes them by putting these websites on the last page of search results. From the original date of release, there have been 5 updates to the Panda algorithm and each of these updates target a specific kind of “black-hat SEO” technique. Poor quality websites are now being sent to the bottom where they belong while superior websites get the higher rankings they deserve.
