Which is that it’s quite a big change of direction for Google to do the devaluing versus kind of penalizing approach with kind of linked spam.Are there any plans to do something similar with Panda?

JOHN MEULLER (Webmaster Analyst from Google):

I don’t have any specific answer for that offhand. So when it comes to low quality content, to things like keyword stuffing, we do try to take that approach already. So that’s something that we have been doing for quite some time in that when we see things that are clearly keyword stuffing or where people kind of have something that a lot of shops used to have– where you have a category page on top and bottom there is like this small tiny text part which lists like 12 Wikipedia articles about that product– those are the kind of things that our algorithms are generally pretty good at picking up on and just ignoring. So that kind of ignoring aspect versus penalizing aspect, I think, is something that across the board for a lot of our algorithms is already happening.
