    Panda has absolutely nothing to do with the penguin update, that's why.
    It's also at least the same scale and size as the Original Panda, if not bigger (my guess is it's far worse for SEOers than Panda)

    Panda:
    Mostly on site, killed a lot of the spamboxers with SB/Xrumer (at least kept them from keeping ranks for too long)

    Penguin:
    Killed white hat, and black hat sites alike, killed them based upon hypothetical linking methods and anchor text optimization to reach some kind of "standard" google believes indicates a site is legitimate.

    Penguin is total destruction for individuals and experts. Now only very authority and big sites are ranking.
