Well, we are not actually worried about these updates since it’s a never ending process. Here’s more, right after the jump below.

In case you are one of those impacted by the 21st Google Panda update (Yeah, 21 updates now!) , there’s one sharp and highly accurate rule. Get rid of the low quality content on your blog or website. Either update the content and make it worthy, or remove them completely using Google Webmaster Tools. Apparently, all Google updates tend to target low quality content producing websites, and the solution to all updates is same. For a quick guide, you can refer to our Google Panda/Penguin Update recovery guide here. In the end, somebody’s loss is somebody else’s gain. The web is now running on rules like these, and for sure webmasters have accepted the existence of Panda and Penguin named creatures among them.
