    There is a Google Panda update scheduled within the next 7-10 days (source). The fact they let it slip makes me wonder if its going to be a big one? (Gulp!).

    Keep it in mind as you go forth, young ones! :)

    I feel like it has already started. I am seeing some weird movements in serps lately.

    Just in time for the holiday rush! Matt Cutts wants to be the Grinch that stole Christmas from webmasters this year.

    This Panda update will be a big milestone. I'm not a quitter by any stretch of the imagination but at my age, in my financial situation, if the sites I have at the moment which are on the cusp of exploding vanish as a few others did during the EMD attack, I'll be hanging up my SEO cap for a while.

    Bi-monthly algo updates are a little too much for an old bloke to keep up with. I've got (legit) quality content and healthy, strong and diverse backlink profiles. If these sites go down, I'll be flipping the big G off for the last time.

    Best of luck to all of you! May your sites weather the storm and may all your rankings be +'s!

    People in the comments mentioned that they had seen changes in the SERPs over the weekend.

    I myself haven't really seen any changes.

    Me neither, in fact quite the opposite, rankings have been increasing VERY well over the past 6 weeks, all keywords nearly on page 1 which is extreme as their quite large sites and targeting all inner pages too...

    Just give Google what it wants!, F*CK YOU G00gle!!!

    My overall search engine impressions and such having been improving since November 5th for my in-house site. I am both nervous and excited. Nervous, because... this site has a lot of unfortunate spam created before I came in-house offsite. It also, by necessity, has some onsite problems (but the sites ranking ahead of it are MUCH WORSE for this, so WTF is Googles problem I have no idea, its only in one country and its pissing me off!) and I don't know if I've done enough (I made some changes and Google rewarded me in the early Nov update so I'm doing SOMETHING right) and the stakes are really high if I'm wrong (gulp!).

    What a stupid industry to have a job in, lol.

    Oh well. I have 7 days. I'm going to be speed-writing my way and adding in lots of fresh new content... haha :)

    I guess we'll see, it doesn't look like anyone can predict what Google's going to do.

    My ranking tools are showing horrible downwards movement for my target keywords..... but my traffic has tripled. It's like I'm starting to rank for all the keywords that I'm not targeting. I only use 1% keyword density on site and 15% exact anchor, but google somehow knows to drop my target keyword and raise my secondary ones. Wierd stuff on my end. Did the panda update start early?

    Ger some fresh content on your sites - make sure you aren't over commercial - use multimedia - get social noise going.

    No guarantees of course, but I would add some content to a site now anyway - good unique stuff and as much of it as I could source.
    That seems to be the way with Panda. The bigger, more regularly updates and unique a site, the more it seems to favour it.

    Links seem to have very little to do with Panda.

    Best thing about these updates, and more frequent updates?

    The more and more people that simply give up on SEO. Which in the end means less competition.

    Sad to see you guys go :ciao:

    Personally, I cannot wait for this. All of the dumbasses that paid for shitty SEO are going to get what's coming to them and people like me will reap the benefits.
