Newsletter: January 2016

A copy of our subscriber newsletter from January 2016.

January has met us with more Penguin and Panda news: Panda is promised to be "baked" into Google's algorithm from now on. There is unlikely to be any new Panda update coming which means it will be harder to diagnose! The algorithm is not real time though, so if any change happens, it will be quite noticeable (Google won't confirm if it's a Panda though!) Penguin update is still coming and it won't be a slow update: The affected sites will be able to see the traffic drop / increase very clearly.

If you want to know more about both of these updates, please head over to our Jim&Ann videos collection and watch everything about Panda and Penguin there. You'll find yourself much more educated after that!
