Year-to-Date Trends Out of approx. 342 algorithmic updates made by Google:  9.4% Freshness Factors: Google continues to refine time-sensitive search signals in order to gain relevancy and visibility for newly trending over more trusted and highly cited web results.  8.8% Google Answers: Google refined data triggering algorithms in order to provide better short answers for calculator functions, economic forecasts, flight status results, movie times, etc.  7.3% Relevancy Signals: Goggle refined its understanding of query interpretations to provide more authoritative results that reflect greater domain diversity balanced with official brand pages, high-quality content, and thematic clustering.  7.3% Autocomplete Functionality: Google algorithm updates made tracking referrals more challenging due to the inclusion of the domain in the autocomplete box, which eliminated the need for searches to finish typing their search queries. Google Algorithm Updates
    • + Google Algorithm Updates  Panda - February 23, 2011A major algorithm update hit sites hard, affecting up to 12% of search results (a number that came directly from Google). Panda seemed to crack down on thin content, content farms, sites with high ad-to- content ratios, and a number of other quality issues. Panda rolled out over at least a couple of months, hitting Europe in April 2011.  Penguin — April 24, 2012 After weeks of speculation about an "Over-optimization penalty", Google finally rolled out the "Webspam Update", which was soon after dubbed "Penguin." Penguin adjusted a number of spam factors, including keyword stuffing, and impacted an estimated 3.1% of English queries.  Courtesy of http://moz.com/google-algorithm-change 15
