    At SMX West Matt Cutts of Google announced they are actively working on the "next generation" Panda update that will "soften" the algorithm. Matt specifically said this is aimed at helping small businesses that may be impacted by the Panda algorithm. There was no date given on its release but he made it clear, this will be a bigger update that will make Panda less of an impact on certain sites.

    I guest this should be a good news for many web-sites that have been hit by Panda and have not yet recovered! However it still remains unclear how far they'll go in softening the algorithm.

    Yes it is, Google have hardened the way sites rank and it was crushing small legitimate business as well so soft panda will help small and new sites to rank well if they have better content..

    Not all, a fraction of hit sites may recover but don't hold your breath.
    Basically, he has realised that his gung ho approach to battering SEO has backfired on him so has released a statement saying he will change the algo to 'fix' the problem.

    Only time will tell if he has done the right thing though.

    Basically they went in too hard and have messed up the rankings of too many legitimate websites, so now they are going to pull back a little. Good.

    Should we trust Matt Cutts?
    I think that will make ranking with 2.0's easier if done right.

    Well this had to happen, they have been unfair to legitimate small businesses for too long now. But again, lets wait and see if he really means what he says.

    So they are updating the original Panda, or is this a completely new Panda update?
