What is Google Panda?

There are hundreds of tools for checking quality of website content, but Google Panda is considered to be the most highly-prized tool. Today we are talking about Google Panda, its unlimited authority, and utility for SEO specialists.

What is Google Panda?

Google Panda is a series of on-going algorithm updates and data refreshes for the Google search engine with the aim to improve the quality and relevance of search query results for users. In other words, Google Panda is to elevate high-quality sites and web pages to the top of the organic search results and lower or even penalize lower-quality websites and pages that are usually displaying too much advertising without any mention of high-quality content.

What is the difference between Google Panda algorithm and Google Penguin?

Another Google algorithm improvement, Google Penguin, is a bit different tool. If the first one, Google Panda algorithm, focuses on pushing farther down poor content and in such way higher quality sites receive priority exposure, Google Penguin targets sites that use Black Hat SEO to boost their search engine results and penalize them for such deeds. Both tools serve as updates for Google's existing search engine.
