It all seems to be a never ending phenomenon for a lot of bloggers, ever since Google rolled out the first Panda Update in February 2011 devastating a lot of websites all across the web. “Google’s Panda Update is the worst or the best thing for a website”. This statement is now well accepted by bloggers and webmasters all over the world as Google continues to shuffle its search engine with on going Panda and Penguin updates. The recent news comes right from Google’s official Twitter account, where a recent tweet confirms that Google is all set to unveil an all new Panda Refresh algorithm update which will affect ~0.7% of the search queries worldwide. Here’s more, right after the jump.
While going through our Twitter timeline this evening, we came across an interesting tweet from none other than Google claiming the release of their next Panda Refresh algo update. This is a tweet most webmasters and bloggers are afraid of, and hate to see. You can find the tweet below:
Panda refresh is rolling out—expect some flux over the next few days. Fewer than 0.7% of queries noticeably affected: goo.gl/woSU3

If you are unaware of Google’s Panda Updates, here’s all you need to know. Google’s Panda updates are algorithm changes produced by Google in its search engine which often tend to alter the way results come up for a particular query. Officially, Google doesn’t want scrapper or low content websites to rank higher on its search engine. Similarly, it wants to reward websites producing quality content by ranking it higher than the rest. In simple words, somebody’s gain is somebody’s loss.
In case your blog or website has been affected by Google’s Panda or Penguin updates, you can refer to our Panda/Penguin update recovery guide here.
For now, it’s clear that Google is all set to roll out its next Panda Refresh update, however the estimated impact for this update remains fairly low(~0.7%). It’s time when you should start looking into the flaws of your blog, and update or no-index all low quality content pages on your work lines.
