Are Games & Lyrics Sites Google Panda 4.1′s Biggest Losers?:-
For example, medterms.com reportedly lost 40% of their SEO visibility, from 286,956 to 172,836. ehow.com who has been repeatedly hit by Panda also saw a massive hit according to SearchMetrics. And a brand close to all our hearts, hallmark.com seems to also have made the list of big losers. There were some bigger names in the losers list like office365.com and hubpages.com but those sites seem to have done migrations to new URLs and the SEO visibility drop may not be related to Panda 4.1.
Update 1-Going live today, Google says the “Penguin Update” will impact about 3% of search queries.
- Keyword stuffing
- Link schemes
- Cloaking, “sneaky” redirects or “doorway” pages
- Purposeful duplicate content
Update 2-Google has just pushed out the first update to its recent webspam-fighting Penguin algorithm. Let’s call it Penguin 2.
Update 3-Google is launching the latest “data refresh” of its Penguin spam-fighting algorithm today and that it will affect searches across multiple languages.Including the original Penguin algorithm launch in late April, this is the third update, so we’re calling it Penguin 3 and avoiding the previous 1.1, 1.2, etc
Update 4-Penguin 4 has a twist. It contains Penguin 2.0 technology under the hood, which Google says is a new generation of tech that should better stop spam.
Update 5-The fifth confirmed release of Google’s “Penguin” spam fighting algorithm is live. That makes it Penguin 5 by our count. But since this Penguin update is using a slightly improved version of Google’s “Penguin 2″ second-generation technology, Google itself is calling it “Penguin 2.1.”
This update is designed to reduce rankings for low-quality sites—sites which are low-value add for users, copy content from other websites or sites that are just not very useful. At the same time, it will provide better rankings for high-quality sites—sites with original content and information such as research, in-depth reports, thoughtful analysis and so on.

Panda Update 4.0-
Panda 4.0, which Google and Matt Cutts confirmed began rolling out yesterday, has definitely caused some waves in the search results.However, the fact that Panda 4.0 is also hitting at the same time as a refresh of an algorithm targeting spammy queries like payday loans makes it a little bit more difficult for webmasters to sort through the damage..
