Google Panda 4.2 Algo Update is Rolling Out – 3% English Queries Effected

Google says a Panda refresh began this weekend, but will take months to fully roll out.

The last time we had an official Panda refresh was almost 10 months ago: Panda 4.1 happened on September 25, 2014. That was the 28th update, but I would coin this the 29th or 30th update, since we saw small fluctuations in October 2014.

The rollout means anyone who was penalized by Panda in the last update has a chance to emerge if they made the right changes. So if you were hit by Panda, you unfortunately won’t notice the full impact immediately but you should see changes in your organic rankings gradually over time.

  • I just checked Fruition for my sites and my main blog didn’t get affected by the Google Panda Update on small sites. It just says 8.6% No Impact.

    My niche site though got a 97.9% positive impact which was very helpful to search engine traffic for that site!

    I don’t understand why that would be when my niche site is younger than my main blog in terms of domain age.

    I would say though that the niche site has had positive impact on each of the last four updates according to Fruition.

    I’m just wondering whether that’s because I’ve kept the keywords very specific on that blog because it is a niche blog.
