    It is funny to see everybody going nuts over ever Google update. Yes, things shift a bit but it isn't ending the SEO business and just as there was no way to "bitch slap" Panda for sure I doubt that there is some key that can unlock crazy easy rankings in Penguin. Hard work is always the key to success. That and persistence.

    I think Google gives these updates cute names and announces them out loud is so that SEO people go nuts, waste their time trying to analyze it and openly talk about what they plan to do for counter-measures.

    Take a deep breath and calm down lol. And lets get back to business as usual around here ;)

    Agreed. This is when everything everyone keeps saying comes into play; read and understand what people are saying, respond accordingly......make bank. This is when money is made, during CHANGE.

    Pretty much this.

    Has any Google update a month on ever been as bad as it seemed at first?

    Things will settle.

    I just only hope that google fix the problem with ranking shity sites on page one.

    But everything else is in normal. Someone gets slapped, but that because of some bad backlinks or articles. The results are still the same from the very first panda update.

    So the rules stays still the same. If you have really quality articles, quality backlinks and good on page seo, there is everything OK :)

    I also think this algo change was made to discourage SEO.

    It might be in correlation with the recent FTC antitrust investigation:

    I find it interesting that Webmaster Help responds instantly and repeatedly to comments on the audio quality of this video on Youtube - but they haven't found it necessary to address any of the 800 negative comments on their Official Webmaster Central Blog for a week...

    I believe what really got them in trouble was how they were using the Google + button and it's likes etc to rank sites. They seem to have since reversed the way they gave big jumps to sites with a G+ button and tons of likes. I think it was looked at like Google was strong arming sites into using the stregnth of Google search to force sites to want to add a Google + button so they could compete better with Facebook.
