It’s that time again, at the start of the week Google announced the 21st Panda update which in total targeted around 0.4% of regular search queries and 1.1% of English U.S search queries. Google Panda specifically targets low quality, duplicated content we see on many website’s today. Since it’s inception in February 2011, the algorithm has set out to actively penalises websites that carry duplicate, low quality, spam content by moving the offending web pages further down the Google search results for their targeted keywords. In essence Google does not want to supply it’s users with irrelevant, duplicate and low quality content.       You can read more about Google Panda here.
