Google Panda 3.9.1

SEO folks often talk about on a possibility that Google update over the past few days, even as far back as last Friday.

So yesterday, after coming back from long weekend, I read Barry Schwartz post and he confirms that an update was indeed occurring. Briefly after getting the email, they replied that they just confirmed it via Twitter.

Google said they update a minor panda refresh this past Monday on August 20th. This refresh only impacted less tan 1% of search results according to Google.

Google Panda 3.9.1

The last Panda refresh was a month prior on July 24th.

Barry did receive emails from a few people who asked him to verify that this was a panda rolled out. Because they saw varies on their Panda penalized (pandalized) sites and wanted to know if they eventually broke out of that penalty. Barry show the screen shot from one site that recovered with this update:
