  • Google Panda updates are like PageRank updates!

    Google Panda updates are now like what PageRank updates used to be a few years ago. Every time there was a toolbar PR update, the SEO world would be in a frenzy, with lots of online space devoted to analysing which sites lost PR, which ones gained and how much.

  • Has Google Panda new version been rolled out on September 28?
