Panda Refresh #25 – Say Bye to Manual Panda updates Now!

Navneet KaushalBy Navneet Kaushal


Google seems to have done their last manual Panda refresh late afternoon on March 14. Forums are rife with a Panda update release with webmasters and SEOs talking about rank changes.

As posted earlier, Panda updates in future will be more integrated with main algorithm and less likely to get noticed. So this must be the last Panda refresh they pushed out manually.
So let us say good bye to the last manual Panda refresh #25.
