    So guys normally after a google update. there's a lot of bitching and crying on all the forums

    According to Matt the Mouth, this is probably the biggest update yet.

    On a personal note its been very kind to me.

    I.m thinking it has actually been a good update for us Blackhat guys

    Has anybody here been slapped by it.

    Or are you all like me, laughing your heads off

    Lets hear your comments

    Same here, few lost their rankings and few improved. It is still too soon to see the full effect of this update.

    This is one strange update, on the 15th of May I saw a lot of sites drop in rankings and between the 20th and 22th all rankings came back, so I have no idea what to think of this really.

    It does seem like that. Looks very much like it is meant to put ebay in its place, and they don't give a shit about the collateral damage to the whitehat guys.

    Once ebay falls back into line. Panda 4 will be reversed

    There should be room for everybody here, But google owns the net, and as long as they keep passing private info over the the governments, nobosy can touch them

    Same here, I saw nothing at all.

    Same place and all of my competitors for most of my top sites stayed the same. I would not be surprised if Google just randomly kicked sites up and down to rock the boat. This way Matt Cunts has something to talk about and people can be scared in to buying ads. We all know that Google's light at the end of the tunnel and final goal is to put the corporate sites in the top and everyone else buys ads to compete.

    Manage a bunch of sites. Most churn and burn sites increased or stayed the same. Couple really clean sites got hit. Really strange update so far. Waiting for all the dust to settle.

    Nope no slapping for my sites yet. One of my new and purely autogenerated site is rocking ( but not ranking yet) after the update. I have to agree with you..

    This also may be because I prefer the "no seo" technique over blackhat and I am not a "ranker" to say the least.

    The rollout of Panda 4 was just a few days ago, it is too early to have a verdict IMO.

    Most of my BH sites survived. I've had mixed results with my sites that got blasted with GSA, some dropped and some are still ranking.

    I think Panda 4.0 is BS, its only to scare people. Matt is enjoying it.

    I think most of us agree, Panda 4 wasn't a bad thing for blackhat
    It seems strange though, A big google update and very little to complain about

    Though its early days, so keep pur fingers crossed
