From time to time we will be running posts by some “friends of Marketing Pilgrim”. How do you become a friend? Just like in the real world, it’s pretty simple in that you just need to get to know us. We’re harmless :-).
“I know, it’s only SEO, but I like it.” – with apologies to The Rolling Stones
Much of the buzz in the SEO world of late has been about the recent updates to the Google Algorithm called “Panda.” A great many have reported their sites took a hit on the SERPs, while an equal, or perhaps greater number of others applauded the changes because it benefited them in some way.

Panda must have dried up their revenue stream because they’ve been very quiet for several months now.
