Google: We've Changed The Way We Think About The Panda Algorithm

Google Panda Algorithm

Gary Illyes from Google said on Twitter this morning that Google has changed the way they think about Panda from five years ago. Gary wrote "we've changed the way we think about Panda." He added, "what was true 5 or so years ago, might not be now."

Here is the tweet:

So what has changed? Well, Panda is part of the core algorithm - that is one big difference. But Gary himself said that this change is not a change to how Panda works fundamentally. John Mueller also said Panda has not fundamentally changed - so why change the way you think about Panda?

Of course, Google has tweaked Panda since it launched in February 2011 many many times. Which is why we had so many Panda updates over the years. So it has changed a lot but in what way?

So has Panda changed enough to think about it differently over the years or is it fundamentally the same?
