Chris CrumSearch

As we reported earlier, the latest data from SearchMetrics shows Google properties like YouTube and Blogger making search visibility gains in the UK as a result of the global roll-out of Panda. Similar trends for these properties are most likely occurring in other countries as well.

While these aren’t the only Google properties making gains, these two in particular seem to be indicative of a larger trend from the update. Video sites and blogs/news sites seem to be doing better. Here are some of the gainers listed in SearchMetrics’ top 100 winners list:

– youtube.com – 18.93% visibility increase
– telegraph.co.uk 16.98% visibility increase
– guardian.co.uk – 9.73% visibility increase
