Panda 4.1, Google’s 27th Panda Update is Slowly Rolling Out

On 26th September, 2014 . Matt Cutts has updated the information on his Google Plus page
Panda update rolling out
Earlier this week, we started a slow rollout of an improved Panda algorithm, and we expect to have everything done sometime next week.
Based on user (and webmaster!) feedback, we’ve been able to discover a few more signals to help Panda identify low-quality content more precisely. This results in a greater diversity of high-quality small- and medium-sized sites ranking higher, which is nice.
Depending on the locale, around 3-5% of queries are affected.
Experts’ take on the update
“Why are we calling it Panda 4.1? Well, Google itself called the last one Panda 4.0 and deemed it a major update. This isn’t as big of a change, so we’re going with Panda 4.1.”
-Danny Sullivan from Searchengineland
We are continuously monitoring SERPs and Google Analytics data to track the changes in traffic and keyword rankings, but it is too early to predict the impact of the update on any website.
