  • Two words – this guy – gun toting, killer penguin. Panda’s a loner not a batman and robin guy but that’s what’s he’s got – a webspam sidekick – you’ll have heard a lot about him in recent days
  • Head in sand heard about a plethora of updates in recent weeks – inc this announcement by google to ‘clean up webspam’ LOTS OF CONFUSION AROUND PANDA OR PENGUIN. GOOGLE’S WEBSPAM ALGO FILTER – TO REWARD GREAT CONTENT AND USER EXPERIENCE
  • Expect it to run alongside panda in the fight against webspam – WITH GREATER IMPACT
