Google Panda has been out for ten year now, and to be honest, it doesn’t feel like it. I remember talking about it when it first came out on this blog, so it’s hard to imagine it’s been out this long.
Panda was launched in order to help eliminate black hat SEO tactics, as well as webspam ever since users of the search platform kept complaining about the darker forms of content becoming rampant across Google.
Since it’s launch in 2011, Panda has really helped Google focus on user experience and overall quality.
