Google just confirmed panda update No # 23 and the refresh impacted about 1.3% of English based searches.
Google actually confirmed the news in twitter very early before the people actually analyse it. The results would show up completely tomorrow in all the reporting tools – MozCast.com, SERPmetrics and SERPS.com.
Last year Google promised that it wouldn’t make any panda update before holidays (christmas) and this time they couldn’t keep up their promise :).
Interesting part here is that last few weeks there were few major updates and Google replied that there wasn’t any. This shocked many and today before anyone recognize the changes it updated the panda confirmation.
I think this will be the last google panda update for the year 2012 and lets see how my prediction will end. Hope this will be called as the “doomsday update” 🙂
