Panda was a clever name choice for the Google Panda updates, which are algorithm updates that affect the universal search engine rankings.
But perhaps Snake would be a better name? Because it looks like a new iteration of Panda has struck again, and created side-wide ranking demotions across the Web. Individual reports have actually claimed a ranking decrease on sites with local relevance, and an increase on niche-info sites. This is interesting, because it seems like the exact opposite of what Panda was initially created to fight against?
Perhaps this isn’t a Panda bite, but a Panda revision of a previous overreach?
