Google Panda Update: New Data Refresh Rolls Out

By: Chris Crum - July 25, 2012

Google tweeted late last night that it has begun rolling out a new data refresh of the Panda update. The refresh affects about 1% of search results in a noticeable way, according to the company.

The last Panda update data refresh we saw was in late June, and that was the second one during that month. It was a rarity for Google to roll out two refreshes to this update in a single month.

Google did, however, announce last week, that it was launching Panda for Japanese and Korean, affecting about 5% of queries (with no other languages affected at all).

Remember, the latest announcement was just a data refresh. For more on what that means (vs. an update), see what Google’s Matt Cutts had to say about it here.

For more information about the Panda update, including Google’s advice, recovery stories and other commentary, please peruse our Panda coverage section.

    For once we didn’t even notice a Google update in the rankings or the traffic of the sites we manage. Couldn’t have altered much with this one.
