Google Panda 3.3 – get in the picture

Google Panda 3.3 - Let's Dance. Google has announced several new tweaks to its Panda algorithms in what is being called Panda 3.3. While the announcement and several of the changes were routine, there are some key parts of the announcement that website owners should take into account.

First, Google says it has turned off part of its scoring mechanism for link analysis. Without explaining what exactly this means, Google is leaving us all to figure it out. Looking at chatter online though, it seems like the websites most affected are those that carry obviously spammy links to try to boost their page rank. Although I can only guess, when Google says it has turned off something in its link analysis, it could possibly be now ignoring page rank when it comes to viewing links between sites. If you know more about this I’d love to hear from you.
