At SMX Advanced, Google’s Gary Illyes announced that the next Panda update will happen in the upcoming weeks. He said maybe in the next two, or three, or four weeks. But the Panda algorithm will be updated in the near future.
Gary said the algorithm isn’t necessarily changing but rather the data will be refreshed.
So sites that have been suffering from this algorithm may see a recovery in the near future. However, not all sites will see a recovery, some may not recover, new sites may also be hit by this data refresh.
When the data refresh is updated, we will make sure to notify you right here.
Gary also explained that it is to Google’s best interest to keep this data fresh, so the they want to keep it updates as frequently as possible. But they do require manual updates and will currently not run by itself like some of their other algorithms.
