What about the impact of Panda?

It’s possible to categorize websites in three types of site:

  • Big brands: They have greatly benefited from the arrival of Google Panda algorithm. SERP position has increased.
  • Smaller sites: Generally not impacted, because Google doesn’t have enough data to sanction them.
  • Large un-branded sites with many pages: Huge effects, and large ranking decrease
