After 4 months time span Google launched their another Panda algorithm. Previous Google Panda 4.0 update affected 7.5% of all English queries as well as low quality content, keywords and duplicate contents owned websites.

Google announced their 27th Panda 4.1 update rolled out officially on Google Plus. Google's Pierre Far, Webmaster Trends Analyst announced publically as:

"Earlier this week, we started a slow rollout of an improved Panda algorithm, and we expect to have everything done sometime next week.

Based on user (and webmaster!) feedback, we’ve been able to discover a few more signals to help Panda identify low-quality content more precisely. This results in a greater diversity of high-quality small- and medium-sized sites ranking higher, which is nice.

Depending on the locale, around 3-5% of queries are affected.

Prime Objective of Panda 4.1 Update

The main purpose of Google Panda Update is to remove spam as well as duplicate contents from the web. From above announcement it is very clear that Panda 4.1 algorithm also continued attack on spam and duplicate content. As compared to previous update Panda 4.1 much softer because it should affects only 3.5% queries while Panda 4.0 affects 7.5%.

This Panda update purposely designed to punish websites which used low quality content as well as duplication of content. So in last update those sites were affected and done rework accordingly Panda update will chance to get benefits to rank high.

Last Panda 4.0 update punished many renowned websites who not follow the rules. As compared to previous Panda update it is little softer but not underestimated because it is designed to kill spam and duplicate contents.

Google distinguished and set ranking phenomenon by users behavior towards specific website they visited. In other words if user searches for specific query in search engine and lands on webpage which not relevant to desired search and user returns back then Google counted these bounces and penalized that website's ranking by 1. If user found search result informative or usable then Google rewarded website's ranking by 1. This point based algometric system applied by Google to maintain their ranking system.

Website maintenance or monitoring is very crucial part of web development process. In other words it is essential and mandatory phase which decides your website's performance as well as improvement in Search Engine Result Pages (SERPs). Actually SEO process is nothing but development of website, not technically but virtually it being a part of website development.

So ultimately the ball comes in webmaster's court to solve these problems and always he/she should be prompt and up to date with new technologies to overcome on these issues.

Recently one of my blog's readers Jay Sarjine from India emailed me a query about his website's search results. I put below his email's screenshot as:

SEO Query

This is only a primary example about this issue because many of us encountered this problem but don't know the solution how to overcome on it? So by taking into consideration this issue Seogdk explore the guidelines to remove deleted page of your website from Google's cache or search results.

For a instance your website name is and you had a page named which you have deleted from your website but its still present on Google's server. Now you want to remove the same from Google’s Server as well. So ultimate solution for this issue is use of Google webmaster tools.

Guidelines to remove deleted page from search results by using Google webmaster tools

-On the Webmaster Tools home page, click the website you want.

-On the Dashboard, click Google Index on the left-hand menu.

-In drop down menu click Remove URLs option.

-Then click Create a New removal request option.

-Type the URL of the page you want removed from search results (not the Google search results URL or cached page URL), and then click Continue.

-The URL is case-sensitive—use exactly the same characters and capitalization that the website uses.

-Click Yes, remove this page.

-Click Submit Request.


By following above guidelines you can easily remove deleted pages of your website from Google search results but its very important and always keep in mind; to ensure your content is permanently removed or not, you need to do one of the following within 90 days of requesting removal. Otherwise, your content may later reappear in search results.

-If the web page no longer exists, make sure that the server returns a 404 (Not Found) or 410 (Gone) HTTP status code. Non-HTML file (like PDFs) should be completely removed from your server.

-If the web page still exists, use robots.txt to prevent Google from crawling it. Even if a URL is disallowed by robots.txt Google may still index the web page if they find its URL on another website. However, Google won't index the web page if it's blocked in robots.txt and there is an active URL removal request for the web page.
