Panda Update 4.1: Winners / Losers – Google U.S.

September 26th, 2014 | Analysis 219 comments

Google Panda Update 4.1The new Panda Update is here. About 4 months after the release of Panda 4.0, Google has announced a new iteration of the algorithm update via the Google+-Profile of an employee on Thursday.

The rather “slow” rollout already started early this week and is supposed to last till the beginning of next. Depending on the region, the update affects about 3%-5% of search queries.

The data is already live in our Software. Check out Searchmetrics Suite – Winners / Losers to get the current data in detail.

“New” Signals to Detect Low-Quality Content

Panda Updates focus on content quality. They are supposed to remove redundant, irrelevant content and spam from Google’s index. So far, this is nothing new. The interesting thing about the current Panda generation is the fact that apparently smaller and medium high-quality websites are supposed to benefit from the update.

Panda 4.1 g+ postGoogle said, based on feedback from both users and webmasters they have “been able to discover a few more signals to help Panda identify low-quality content more precisely”.

Following the bigger Panda 4.0 update, the new Panda seems to be a rather “small“ iteration. That’s why Search Engine Land is calling the 27th update from the Panda family “Panda 4.1“.

Panda 4.1 Winners and Losers

Just a friendly reminder: The following data is based on the organic SEO Visibility for each domain for all researched keywords, compared to our last data point. The actual traffic by each domain – for example brand and/or direct traffic etc. – can vary with values given here. Also a win or loss doesn’t necessarily mean a causation with Panda. Sometimes it is based on simple technical issues or redirects like nokia.com.

Let’s take a look at the data.

Conclusion: News, Content Sites and Download Portals win – Games, Lyrics and some Medical Portals lose

The 4.1 iteration of Panda ties in with the preceding updates. Losers are often games or lyrics portals as well as websites dealing with medical issues and content – to cut it short (here I am repeating myself): in general, it hit pages with thin content. Aggregators do not provide unique and relevant content.

It doesn’t seem to be very relevant for Google to list (that is: aggregate information about) sites that are down at the moment. That was measurable already with Panda 4.0 and it is true for the current update as well:

downrightnow is down

On the other hand, sites with quality content won. Babble.com has been a loser of the Panda 4.0 update and has now recovered quite impressively. And there are even more losers of Panda 4.0 that recovered. Just to name a few: rd.com, Hotelguides.com, Yourtango.com, Spoonful.com or ivillage.com. Also, some quality sites with relevant topic content like Simplyrecipes.com or brands like Glamour.com have benefited from the update.

    The Find The Best loser entry should have a 0 on the end.

  2. 2014/09/27

    I love how the no 1 winner is a super thin site with no content whatsoever, and games that are copied from other thousands of sites, and keyboard stuffing on the footer.
    Now THAT is quality google! Nice update…

  3. 2014/09/27

    Why a site like Pirate Bay which provides online downloads of movies and mp3 benefited from the Panda 4.1 update? And content site like Hubpages didn’t benefited?

  4. 2014/09/28

    …thanks vor the data and the conclusion, Marcus!

    Panda 4.1 update looks good so far

    Interesting read with data and a great visual write up so good work!
    Just added you now on g+

    I love your post thanks for great info.. panda 4.1 is usefull for us to find content errors in the sites..

    In contrary to your conclusion, I see more medical sites as winners than losers. Health winners include netdoctor.co.uk , Health.com and Healthgrades.

  9. 2014/09/29

    Noticed changes on september 23,some of the sites got 200% traffic and some other lost their rankings.

    Sarha writes “Why a site like Pirate Bay which provides online downloads of movies and mp3 benefited from the Panda 4.1 update? And content site like Hubpages didn’t benefited?”

    Well Sarha, *pleasebekind, Aaron (edited)*. Perhaps if they kicked out the non-native English speakers who can’t write, the site would not be so hated by Google.

    This update had no effect for our site, but we may have been too late. We discovered that Feedfury had duplicated 440 of our blog articles, sending us into the supplemental index. Feedfury removed the feed for us, but probably too late for this update.
    We’re also still waiting on Penguin, and I’m not sure if a Penguin penalty means that we won’t see Panda improvements until Penguin refreshes.

  12. 2014/09/29

    Seems that a high percentage of the sites that are winners are commercial sites. Strange that more and more after these updates, sites that have thin informational content but lots of goods to sell are ranking higher and higher. Ridiculous.

  13. 2014/09/29

    Poor or thin content ? Phhh please

    What do you think of this then? Similar sites like these with scraped contents are always ranking
    http://www.freepik.com/

  14. 2014/09/29

    Good Content was always the mantra. But, how does a download site not count as thin content site?

  15. 2014/09/29

    Brilliant write-up, Marcus!

    I find it fascinating seeing both the winners and losers of each update released by Google. Although I do feel for the losers, I think these updates are great and hopefully it brings the losers to up their efforts with their content.

  16. 2014/09/29

    This is really random. It seems like informational websites got nailed, hard, while trashy websites got a lot of help. Medical portals got hit hard too, probably for having short articles. But really, who wants to read a wall of text just to figure out if they have a cold or not and how to treat it? One side of Google’s neck says: “Write succinct, informative content that is tailored for your users.” The other side says: “Less than a certain number of words that we set as arbitrary is ‘thin’, so write a ton of fluff, even if it pisses off your users.’

    Once again, great update Google. Get it together.

  17. 2014/09/29

    Funny how some sites that were impacted by Panda have come back with this update (I’d think Piratebay was hit a couple of updates ago). Moreofit goes up while similarsites goes down, go figure. We’ll have to see how Google refines this update in the coming months.

  18. 2014/09/29

    Very informative and timely insights as always. Thank you Marcus!

  19. 2014/09/30

    piratebay.se is not thin content? The page is filled with ads and it only provides torrent links.

    Astrologyzone? Have you checked that site?

    http://www.800-numbers.net

    The real explanation about panda update is that everybody’s ranking is defined by pure luck. Only SEOs can see the reason behind these silly moves in ranking but any explanation is insult to intelligence of average human being. Thin content don’t has anything to do with ranking as evident from links above.

  20. 2014/09/30

    Interesting to see, but it doesn’t look like my site got hit at all this time. I got a whack with Panda 4.0, but I have been working on fixing it up. I don’t think I have recovered yet as I have added about 100 posts since the end of May, and I have slowly crawled my traffic back to what it was post Panda 4.0.
    My traffic has remained fairly consistent, rising and dipping within a few hundred visits every day over the past week. It will be interesting to see what happens over the next few weeks.

  21. 2014/09/30

    These lists doesn’t make much sense to me, as more than one already said in comments, there are sites between the “winners” which aren’t quality sites at all. I guess Panda 4.1 is targeting something more than “thin content” sites, maybe something related with site structure or external elements that give hints about the site authority in its niche.

  22. 2014/09/30

    Any idea why Google choses to penalise the whole site, rather than just target pages or folders that contain the thin content? Sometimes by nature a certain type of page can be thin (product page for example), whereas other pages will be ok (product listing pages).

  23. 2014/09/30

    Some of the calculations in the winners list (% change) are a bit off. Just look through the top-10 and you’ll notice a few which don’t add up, their % change should be far higher than the table states.

  24. 2014/09/30

    To me it looks like this update failed for the most part (regarding Google’s intentions). Many sites that benefit its readers dropped while other sites that are spam, at best, benefited. Pirate Bay as mentioned above is a top ‘illegal’ torrent site.

    Grats to geekwire though!

    Anyone have any insight on http://craftgawker.com/ ? I’m quite curious if they have ever been hit for being as large as they are and no ‘real’ content. They do block a lot in their robots.txt, but what are your thoughts?

  25. 2014/10/01

    DLC, I think these updates are always good. Google updates their algorithm in order to make the results better for its users. Thus Google is widely accepted by many of the users worldwide.

  26. 2014/10/01

    Why a site like piratebay you say. Probably because it provides quality pirated downloads of movies & mp3’s. ROFL

  27. 2014/10/01

    I can discern anything from this ‘update’. Watch as Google’s adwords or revenue increases. It must be related to their ad spend in any vertical. Thin content makes no sense either, why should a site have thick content to be better? It’s a know fact humans only scan and don’t read on the web.

    What are the other metrics duplicate content? Maybe but then finding the original for any given piece must be near impossible.

  28. 2014/10/02

    I’m glad to sites with bad content down positions in the serps

  29. 2014/10/02

    Will be looking at my results in Russian segment

  30. 2014/10/04

    Yes, we fulfill what Google wants with various updates. I’m happy, my blog is not affected by this update. Everything is going well. We need to learn to do better liking for Google who has the power to make rules.

  31. 2014/10/05

    Definitely this update was an error. Just look over the losers and you can see established pages like hubpages, buzzle, ehow, oxforddictionaries, etc… lost traffic for “quality” sites such as thepiratebay or glamour or comdotgame.

    Shame on you Google. You go worst and worst.

  32. 2014/10/05

    Every time Google gets my hopes up with talk of “quality content” being rewarded, and every time I’m disappointed. It just seems so arbitrary and random. Thanks for this quality article!

  33. Ari
    2014/10/06

    I agree with Peter. It seems that the percentage calculations are off.

    homewyse.com
    Before 14161
    After 441
    Change in % -69% <- this should be -96,9

    Is the "After" column missing a zero in the end for some sites? If the example after-figure was "4410" the -69% would be correct.

  34. 2014/10/07

    Thank you Peter and Ari! In three cases, there was just missing a zero in the end of the after-figure (maybe it got lost when copy pasting the table into the CMS). We have corrected the numbers.The %-loss stayed the same.

  35. 2014/10/07

    Thanks Marcus for this post. Are there any tools in SearchMetrics suite to find all those Panda issues?

  36. 2014/10/07

    Hi Daniel,

    Is the same copy-paste error to blame for the (seeming) % error for findthebest.com?

    Calculating from the numbers you provide, it looks like their visibility *increased* by 204%.

  37. 2014/10/07

    Hallmark’s decline was caused by an ill-timed robots.txt issue. A new robots has been deployed and Hallmark is back to normal traffic levels and rankings are on the rise again. I would not look at Hallmark for clues to the mystery of Panda 4.1.

  38. 2014/10/08

    I have a small medical illustration website. I’ve been hit hard by Panda 4.1. Apparently, from what I’ve read, I’m being penalized for thin content (mostly imagery, little textual content), but I license my artwork on my site, so the site is simply a curation of my medical art without many words… as it genuinely should be. It may be considered thin content, because my website is ALL ABOUT IMAGES. So what is someone like me to do if my only product is imagery – not words/text? I’m a small business who has been hit hard by Google meddling. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

  39. 2014/10/09

    90% of winners are sites that lost all their traffic on panda 4.0 that’s why you see absurd numbers. They didn’t just got it now they had it before and google took it away and now it’s giving it back.
    If you check wayback machine you’ll most of this sites changed absolutely nothing.

  40. 2014/10/09

    Marcus,

    Excellent article. Although not everyone may agree with the updates from Panda, we definitely found some interesting changes. Being in the press release distribution industry (24-7 Press Release Newswire) not only were we affected positively, however we have also received excellent feedback from some of our customers about their results. I am not laying claim by any means that by distributing a press release has helped them, however the timing of events is certainly coincidental.

    On another note, our editorial has also cracked down on quality of press releases submitted, which means only about 30% actually make it to publication, which may have helped us.

    Great article, thank you.

    Are the numbers for HubPages incorrect, or should they be in the winners column?

  42. 2014/10/10

    Seriously +1353% o.O! comdotgame.com haven’t text. Crazy algorithm :S

  43. 2014/10/10

    Quite a morale boost for lots of small websites out there which now may be investing even more energy to climb up the ranks..

  44. 2014/10/10

    Thanks for the data resource covering Panda 4.1 impact on Websites.

  45. 2014/10/10

    Google panda is a load of horse manure, they have no clue what they are doing! i see sites that are listed with very good reads loosing search visibility while crack sites are gaining and sites with thin or no content at all. I am beginning to wonder if Google has an ulterior motive or they have vested interest in some of these crappy sites now being ranked high. We need a new SEARCH ENGINE!

  46. 2014/10/12

    The good news, it looks like it will make for a more vibrant experts in understanding and solving problems in working with the Google Panda which has been updated. it’s time to start a new vigor. Thank you for this info.

  47. 2014/10/13

    Very interesting article . How to know what were the changes ?

  48. 2014/10/14

    Thanks for great example of sites that affected and not affected from Google panda, I’m going to change the way of my content to get plagiarized from others.

  49. 2014/10/15

    Great post. Although not negatively affected all the sites with thin content but in general there is another step forward. A (small) battle is won ;)

  50. 2014/10/15

    Great article! similarsites … its normal. Bye bye project

  51. 2014/10/16

    panda 4.1 gave more results for pure content writing, some of my seo work have increased but some get kicked :D .. no doubt google doing his work

  52. 2014/10/20

    great information thanks for post

  53. 2014/10/21

    Interesting article, the percentage are really high for the domain loser..

  54. 2014/10/30

    Nice one: Keep generating quality links for Penguin and quality Contents for Panda…HEHE :)

  55. 2014/10/30

    This is a very interesting article. It is always useful to know new facts about the zoo in google… Thanks for share it!!

  56. 2014/10/31

    We saw a nice increase in traffic from the update, but that’s probably because we put a lot of emphasis on our content. Our unique monthly visits increased from about 30K to 55K.

    Oh, and Marcus, it’s rare these days to see this level of involvement from someone in your position. It’s nice to read content from someone who clearly understands what they’re talking about instead of spun content from writer who’s just repeating information they’ve gathered from other sites. Keep up the good work!

  57. 2014/11/03

    Very interesting article, very well research done by Marcus.
    Panda 4.1 update really useful for white hat seo techniques.

    Panda updates really affected. Does this affected sites are overcome the algorithm affect? I believe panda affection can be removed by removing no quality content and adding quality content right?

  59. 2014/11/27

    How can we recover these looser website to come into winners.

  60. 2014/11/27

    As we all know that Google is recently lauched New Penguin with 3.0 version and many of the sites are affected. There are many sites who penalized by Panda and Penguin also. So now they have to work on quality content and quality link buidling also to rank higher and recover.

    thanks great article

  62. 2014/11/27

    Great list and insights, thanks for post !

  63. 2014/12/03

    I applaud Google on these updates should not go on the internet, but what benefit the people

  64. 2014/12/18

    Panda comes every month to scare the SEOer.

  65. 2015/01/05

    Really a good content makes SEO to scare. No problem SEO will break and rock.

  66. 2015/01/12

    Content plays a utmost role in search results. Panda 4.1 index fresh and latest content matter, the fresh is the content the better is the ranking.

  67. 2015/02/24

    great information thanks great article.

  68. 2015/03/05

    Google Panda was one of the most controversial algorithm update from Google, but with time it

    helped a lot to remove low quality websites from search engine and over all it improved the

    quality of search results. Though for many web masters, Google panda updates are still a

    headache and at unknowingly many good websites lost their search engine ranking due to panda

    penalty.

    I’d like to start off say, thanks for taking the time to write such a detailed guide to beating

    Panda.

    Thanks and Regards

    John

    The underlying question is why some sites are never affected by penalties (manual or others (Panda / Penguin)). Whitelist addressed by John Mueller in his hangout of 2 February.

  70. 2015/06/24

    Thanks for the article. One of our potential clients is in the winners section and pointed this out to me. Overall I think the update was helpful for the content driven sites and encourages updated content. However, some of the changes I see make me scratch my head in our local area especially. Thanks again

  71. 2015/07/11

    Thanks for this info, it was a very good article! What about panda uptades in 2015?

  72. 2015/07/30

    Unfortunately these are often only implemented by the major players.
    For example, if they start searching in a certain category, allow them to search by price
    within that category. There are also users who remember the website or bookmark the website and become a frequent user of the website.

  73. 2015/10/20

    Is there any new panda updation?

  74. 2015/12/18

  77. 2016/01/08

    Hi!
    I thought this version of panda was supposed to help small businesses. Looks and feels like it made it even harder to be a small business owner online!
    Waiting for 2016 updates :)

  78. 2016/02/01

    I want to thank you for this good read!! I certainly loved every little bit of it. I have got you saved as a favorite to look at new stuff you post…

  79. 2016/02/19

    On February 9, 2016, when Gary Illyes was asked on Twitter when Marketers can expect the next Google Panda Update, he dictated that he isn’t aware of anything but it doesn’t mean nothing is happening. On the topic of the upcoming release of mobile algorithm changes, he replied: “nothing I am aware of.”

  82. 2016/03/18

    We saw a nice increase in traffic from the update, but that’s probably because we put a lot of emphasis on our content.

  83. 2016/04/02

    New signals are Social Media and fresh content. SEO guys should drop now low quality networks such as Bookmarks, Profile etc.

  84. 2016/04/18

    Be very careful with Google Panda, better quality content always do.

  85. 2016/05/06

    A round of applause for your forum topic.Thanks Again. Really Cool.
