After careful consideration, we’ve decided to decommission PandaRisk.com as a self-serve tool. The Google Panda update targets low-quality websites identified using a machine learned algorithm. At the time of launch, PandaRisk.com utilized the seed questions reportedly used in training Google’s Panda Algorithm with user surveys of your website. Unfortunately, this process left our analysis at the “beginning” of Google’s Algorithm, and not at the end result.
While we found the surveys were very helpful to many of our customers, we felt that it would be best to provide our customers with a concise “take-away” of what we have learned from PandaRisk, and offer more customized services. The Panda algorithm consumes a much larger data set than our surveys are able to provide, and we found that as this machine learned algorithm has evolved there is not a one-size-fits-all approach that can be taken.
