    I want to open a new thread for this Particular Panda update, probably the biggest one yet from 2012.

    My observations:

    There was a new Panda update on 14 January 2012. Several websites in niches I monitor were hit (non-Pandalized websites, Pandalized websites).

    There seem to be a weather report today or even tomorrow.

    People also reported small or minor updates on 4-5 January.


    Your observations?:eek:

    On January 13 one of my sites started to droppig: #5 --- > #25 ----> #44 ----> #25 ----> #67 on a very competitive keyword.
    I was on page 1 for a long time. 50€/daily burned :mad2:

    Another question - those websites were Pandalized last year or not?

    Thanks for answering. You are awesome!

    I have seen some improvement on my niche sites and some sites comes back with more power, but i would say thats beacause of link building.
    no signs for a new update for me, sorry

    I see mostly nothing and small improvements here and there on my own sites. All seems normal..

    I am no longer actively watching niches.

    Hmm, I'm not seeing any changes at all. All sites are more or less intact.

    Only one of my sites was hit. 6 of my 8 main keywords have disappeared gradually. Yesterday everything was back to normal but today my keywords are again nowhere.

    BTW just wondering is there anything "official" to read about this update you're seeing??

    The panda update is obviously ongoing, so there are small algo changes every other day, I can't see a major change, just checked with 2 of my webmaster friends that own loads of websites too...
