A site built from ground up for user experience will not even know there has been a change in the Google Algrurthem. Â The truth is if you do not have a spammy site or one of those Microsites designed for quick buck, Â you do not need to read this article. Â Most of those who suffered are those who have been and trying to cheat the system or outsmart the system. Â And now Google will punish, Â how? with Panda.
Panda is a site-wide penalty, not a page penalty. So if a certain percentage of your pages fall below Pandaâ€™s quality algorithm, then the whole site suffers. Fix enough of these pages and you may recover.To be fair, the dates that Panda hit donâ€™t match up to periods when we saw traffic gains.

In a way, you could say weâ€™re good at not getting penalized by Panda.
