Each day millions of web surfers log on to search engines and enter in a search keyword to help them solve problems, find places, or just learn something new. Few of these web users probably have little to no idea how the websites presented in the search results pages wound up on the list, much less why they were presented in the order they were.

Google Panda Update
Google Panda first surfaced in February 2011, this is where Google penalised websites that did not have high-quality content or not much content at all. Also, if your website had duplicate content, content that was not valuable or original or you didn’t update your website regularly then your ranking would have decreased a great deal.
