    Read a couple of interesting posts recently:

    Update on upcoming updates / SAPE links:

    http://searchengineland.com/googles...ng-penguin-panda-link-networks-updates-151273

    SAPE links update:

    http://searchengineland.com/did-google-just-penalize-another-link-network-sape-links-150843 (another network along with SAPE also being targeted?).

    Update on Panda update this week:

    http://www.searchenginejournal.com/matt-cutts-confirms-panda-update-coming-this-friday/60870/

    Panda update sometime this week (I think the 15th) and then the huge Penguin update to follow.

    To be honest, I'm excited. If Matt claims its big, then it probably is. How are you feeling?

    Personally I feel that Google have updated their algo for many years, now that Matt gives them silly names trying to cause a stir means nothing. I have never since getting a big site hit, spent much time or money on one site, I believe the best way to game google is by having hundreds of mini sites, sometimes you will win on updates, others you will lose. It only really affects people who put their heart and soul into a site and one site only and then see that site ripped from under them by the google dictatorship.

    I guess it's all about not having eggs in a single basket.

    I too, right now have hundreds of mini / buffer sites which is making me money and I am creating many more each week, and ranking them. Some die / some get better and that's the best thing - because you do not need to be worried about going broke after your single site has been affected.

    Well, tbh, I am waiting for these updates, there was something really wrong with this march 6th update, so I hope the Panda update will return my rankings for my white hat site. Will see in a week.

    Personally I do not touch my big sites at all, I feed them through facebook and twitter and that is it. They tend to get enough traffic from longtail and social, enough to make them worth keep doing. When I had a big site hit, it was enough to make me feel like giving up, until I realised a big site is not the best way to go, especially if you are trying to game Google.

    Same here. I'd always thought SAPE was going to be a hard job to crack, but only time will tell..

    Couldn't have said it better.

    Like the guy above I took a big hit on March 6th/7th, so I'm not sure what that says about this upcoming weekend for me. Whatever. I'm still pretty excited because there is only one direction I can go right now (srs. 3/6 TANKED me)

    Let's just hope it won't decrease my rankings, instead rise them! The same goes for all of you other BHWers!

    I'm waiting to see what happens, as well. I have nothing to wipe out, so it doesn't really matter to me. I don't know what it is, but since last year I haven't been able to rank any new websites. It's as if they rank natural after Google indexes them and once I start to build links, they don't budge :/

    I'm feeling quite eager for this update.. it's only a Panda update (the actual HUGE Penguin update is near the end of the year) but it should still be interesting..
