    Panda update apparently rolling/rolled out for .UK according to webmasterworld.

    I feel like SEO is a more accurate topic for this and we have way too much shoved into General as it is ? :) Not to mention this was 1st.

    However I prefer google link than WMW link.

    Some of my exact match, and exact match hyphenated domains have actually improved position. Maybe the dross got flushed out and that's why. In fairness, I did engage in a decent amount of link building so it's certainly possible.

    The only exception is a site I haven't worked on much at all ( appearance .co.uk - moved from position 3 to 8), so that pretty much falls in what we were told would happen.

    If this has been rolled out then I haven't noticed any major difference to be honest. There are some improvements compared to last week, but none are ranking lower (if it hasn't been rolled out then the improvements are probably from links/content).

    Have still got exact match domains on competitive terms ranking within the first few pages without any link building or effort though...

    My sites are all ranking the same or higher, but perhaps it hasn't finished updating yet?

    Good point. Maybe we're not seeing the full picture at the moment. If it hasn't though, it surely must be imminent. If the dial has been turned down, they don't appear to have been doing much turning.

    Bit off topic, but using google.co.nz the URL line in the results now comes first (after the title). I'm finding it difficult to use this way.

    Panda

    On average our city sites have increased in the rankings by about 20% in the last week, so I'm not complaining!

    Out of 16 sites for top 3 keyword combos, 4 are down one on average, 8 no change, 4 are up one or two. No effect, or not rolled out completely yet?

    results are very mixed for me and a little strange.

    For one site which has 2,000+ word decent quality product reviews all of which are linked to individually by numerous sites - the review pages have all fallen by a couple of pages.

    Meanwhile a site which only has dup content from amazon (as I hadn't gotten around to sorting it out) and minimal backlinks has gone to position 2 in the serps!

    Interestingly, after the Panda update, one of my Adsense sites is now number one on UK and Global searches for the top 4 terms in its field and its position has climbed significantly for other terms. previously it was between number 3 and 6 for the top 4 terms.

    Couldn't say, but I have noticed a resurgence of hypenated partial match domains in the fields I monitor, which this article seems to show also. I thought the days of spammy keyword-uk.co.uk and keyword-online.co.uk ranking were gone.
