Webmasters have been expecting to get Google panda update for months. Panda is an important update of Google to fight back the spammy or poor quality contents from being ranked in a higher search result. Authority website with quality contents gets more importance than spammy ones in a search result. An update is also useful for a penalized website for low quality to return back in search result again. This is why Panda holds lots of importance for the webmasters in the SEO industry.
In a recent conversation in Google Hangout between Google’s John Mueller and webmasters, John confirmed that Google Panda 4.2 is being rolled out now. The update is being done several times and it is taking more times than usual. It was even asked why it is taking more times than the usual.
Rolling of an update is taking time than usual due to technical reasons as explained by John Mueller. This is why it is taking months and months as opposed to days or months taken in earlier updates. He also clarified that slow updates are not to confuse people but it is occurring only due to internal technical reasons.
John Mueller states that the update is similar to earlier ones but only taking much longer times due to technical glitches. Crawling and indexing are being done normally for content to recognize higher and lower quality sites immediately and deliver ranking accordingly. Information is being rolled out slowly not by design but due to unavoidable technical glitches at Google.
Webmasters around the world are expecting to see an immediate result from Google’s Webspam algorithms update. But, slow rolling out of Panda 4.2 would take months and it means would require months in seeing either positive or negative impacts of the update. Till then, webmasters need to wait and wait to see the result in the search result.
