On Twitter I noticed few weeks ago some webmasters were talking about possible Panda update that could happened after some organic traffic decreased. At the same time at SMX conference Googler Gary Illyes said that Panda algorithm is constantly running, instantly.

Yesterday in Google+ hangout John Mueller from Google team confirmed that Panda was not updated since October 2014. Also he said the he is not sure about rela-time Panda.

“We do kind of have Panda tied into our search results more directly, so there is this kind of real time reflection there.

But as far as I know, we haven’t updated the data that’s reflected there for a while. So that is probably the date you’re looking at there and the real time is more the technical aspect of how we integrate that into it.”
