Google’s Panda Update Rolls-out To UK

By Marcus Tober

As you’ve probably read somewhere recently (or maybe you were impacted by directly),  Google released the “Panda Update” – labelled the “Farmer Update” Thursday February 24.
Thanks to our leading SEO analytics software, the Searchmetrics Suite, we were able to show which websites were both negatively and positively impacted by this update. Check-out the full post here.

Google’s Panda Update now hit the UK

However, as we quickly realized, the update was only released for Google.com. Thus it has not affected any other countries until yesterday when Google announced that it has rolled out Panda globally to all English-language Google users. Interestingly, Google confirms that for this update it’s also using user data from its “block these pages from your results” function.

We’ve performed an analysis with millions of different keywords in the short -and longtail of the impact of this update. We analyzed the top 100 domains with the greatest gains and losses in our Organic Performance Index (OPI) from the previous week. The OPI is calculated according to a keyword’s search volume, position and the statistical value of traffic distribution.

The update is made every week and we can definitely confirm that the update has hit the UK – in a big way.

eHow.com and co.uk lost more than 50%

Surprisingly, ehow.co.uk and ehow.com has lost more than 50% in terms of visibility and the alarm bells are probably going off at Qype.co.uk which has lost a whopping 96%! A lot of price comparison sites like ciao.co.uk (in a lawsuit with Google) and dooyoo.co.uk also lost nearly 90% of visibility.

Some interesting graphs (click to enlarge):

Ciao.co.uk lost ~94% of SEO visibility

eHow.com and eHow.co.uk lost over 50%

Ehow.co.uk

Hubpages lost also in the UK index

Reviewcentre.com is in absolute numbers the biggest loser

Cheap flights comparison site airfaresflights.co.uk lost ~95% SEO visibility. Some competitors like skyscanner only 4%.

Dooyoo.co.uk has the same fate like Ciao.co.uk with a ~94% loss

Point-of-interest community Qype.co.uk is now in the middle of nowhere

    Awesome, nothing short of awesome. I can now go to bed happy knowing that Panda actually seems to have done what it set out to do.

    My personal pet hates are Mahalo and Ehow both of which got a major kicking.

    Good riddance to thin content!

    Night

    I’m a little surprised to see Pocket-lint on that list. They have a ton of really good original content.

  3. 2011/04/13

    Thank you for sharing this data. Really good to see some numbers rather than just rhetoric.

  4. 2011/04/13

    Nice to seem some proof of the impact the update has had.

    Just tweeted this blogpost, might be a good idea to add a “tweetmeme” button for ease or add URL shortening to the twitter button you have as it’s just annoying when the URL takes up the whole tweet :)

  5. 2011/04/14

    Great article. Really really glad to se some of those penalised.

    Quite surprised about play.com though.

  6. 2011/04/27

    Thank you very much for statistics.

  13. 2011/11/29

    At times I contemplate if people actually devote some time to come up with something imaginative, or are they just dishing out words to occupy a web page. This undoubtedly doesn’t fit that form. Thank you for spending the time to compose with appeal. From time to time I read through a post and question if they even proofread it.Superior work with this posting.

  14. 2011/12/06

    Good to see that Google has clamped down on thin content sites. It was only a matter of time before Google considered the domain as a whole as apposed to ranking individual pages on a site. I’m all for this update as ultimately it will make the web a better place.

    Hey there! I’ve been reading your site for a long time now and finally got the courage to go ahead and give you a shout out from Lubbock Texas! Just wanted to tell you keep up the great work!

  31. 2012/12/06

    At first I hated everything to do with a panda nevermind the update but now I am getting used to writing decent content that users want rather than pages with no uniqueness and basically thin content. Although my sites did take a hit I will be ready for anything else they throw at me.

  32. 2013/03/09

    This update has hit my site a little too :( but still its really nice to see Google getting soo tough.

    So now a site with excellent content will win the race and the site which just wins coz of too many links will loose the race. CONTENT IS KING… I just love this now :)

    I will have to work on it a bit and have to do some good SEO by doing manual link building.

  33. 2013/03/09

    Interesting to see that a site like ezinearticles is losing so much. Further there seem to be quite some voucher and download sites on the losers list… It was about time I would say. Not a lot of valuable content on those usually.

    [...] Interestingly, Google confirms that for this update its also using user data from its block these pages from your results function. Weve performed an analysis with millions of different keywords in the short -and longtail of the impact of this update. We analyzed the top 100 domains with the greatest gains and losses in our Organic Performance Index (OPI) from the previous week. The OPI is calculated according to a keywords search volume, position and the statistical value of traffic distribution. The update is made every week and we can definitely confirm that the update has hit the UK in a big way. eHow.com and co.uk lost more than 50% Surprisingly, ehow.co.uk and ehow.com has lost more than 50% in terms of visibility and the alarm bells are probably going off at Qype.co.uk which has lost a whopping 96%! A lot of price comparison sites like ciao.co.uk (in a lawsuit with Google) and dooyoo.co.uk also lost nearly 90% of visibility. Some interesting graphs (click to enlarge): Ciao.co.uk lost ~94% of SEO visibility eHow.com and eHow.co.uk lost over 50% Hubpages lost also in the UK index Reviewcentre.com is in absolute numbers the biggest loser Cheap flights comparison site airfaresflights.co.uk lost ~95% SEO visibility.
