Lean More About the Recent Google Panda 4.2 Update

Google Panda Update: Everything We Know About Panda 4.2. Google's update has finally arrived!

Google's Gary Illyes has confirmed that Google started rolling out Panda update version 4.2 last weekend, affecting 2–3% of queries.

The latest Google algorthum update has hit websites & search. Learn about how Google Panda Update 4.2 will affect your website's rankings.

Technically, Panda 4.2 is not an update: Google didn't introduce new signals, it just reapplied the same signals on new data.

Over the weekend, Google rolled out Panda 4.2, a refresh of the Panda algorithm that will take months to fully roll out.

Panda 4.2 is all about improving the online user experience – which is why the refresh is an enhancement and not a version update.

It's affected on 2% to 3% of English queries, still it is rolling out.

Many people look to Mozcast first to either see if anything has rolled out, or to confirm what they are seeing in their own analytics reporting.  This is how many have spotted many of the recent updates that Google did not initially confirm, such as the Quality Update earlier this year.

It does raise an interesting question if the traditional serp weather reports are unable to pick up on the changes.  Google could easily change from a push Panda update to a slow rolling one, and webmasters wouldn’t necessarily be aware unless they saw an uptick or decline in one of their sites.  And that date might not correspond with other similar reports that could technically be months apart but stemming from the same initial push.

Panda, Panda, Panda

Bottom line, the long awaited Panda refresh is here, even though you might not be able to actually tell it arrived.   Hopefully as the slow roll out continues, we might be able to see some patterns… but not the other hand, we might not.
