    Google Panda Fail: SEXY ANGELICA DANCE Search Result

    By in Google

    We all know about Google panda and how good and bad it is. No doubt, despite of so many iteration, Panda updates are not perfect and that’s’ why we have seen many changes in our Keyword ranking in last couple of months. Needless to mention, effect in traffic because of that, good for some and worse for many.

    Anyways, here is a nice result spotted by @Nirmaltv who found some weird result for one of Google own product search term. Search in Google with term “www.Gmail.com” without quotes and you can see the result which link to some sexy dance video on metacafe.

    Here is a screenshot of the result and you can check that too:

    Here you can see total number of searches/month for www.gmail.com keyword:

    global monthly search thumb Google Panda Fail: SEXY ANGELICA DANCE Search Result

    Interesting thing, you should note here is this page is ranking among 767,000,000 results and also beating official Gmail blog.

    Anyways, it’s already clear that Panda is all about favoring big brand and lowering down ranking of low quality blogs. But, this result shows some other picture and  none the less, panda needs quite a bit of tweaking and Google should work to fix on this issue soon. Instead, of doing it manually, they should work on their algo to find out what made this video come on the first page for such Keyword, when it’s not even relevant.

    Similarly search for  www.yahoo.com and see the following results on first page:

    Meanwhile, what’s your opinion about this result? Do you also feel that Google panda is still away from perfection and need some tweaking to improve search engine results?

    This is super failure then!
    Google should pay some cash-back to those who had blood-pressure problems due to Panda.

    This have nothing to do with Panda omg. Panda is about baning content-farms and moving other popular and good blogs to their places instead. This is normal thing because youtube is probably most higly placed video site on google search and thats why you see that stuff from comments. So, once again, this have nothing to do with panda.

    @Sasa I agree with your point regarding Panda is all about demolishing content farms and improve the ranking of authority websites. Though It’s also about showing relevent results… How come a sexy dance video is relevent to keyword http://www.gmail.com
    Just because user used Gmail in the title??
    Same results for http://www.yahoo.com and rediff.com.

    Don’t you think all this things call for some tweaking in search engine algo to improve the relevancy of the search term??

    @Harsh i just told that title of this post is worng, this have nothing to do with panda, and yes, i agree that this is google mystake. But tell me, how you think they can make relevant but automatic SERP with this kind of video clips, but still to show content from youtube.

    @Sasa
    If this video is coming only in video tab, it make sense. Now consider a scenario: http://www.gmail.com is a generic website targeting everyone from child to oldies.. Now imagine if a kid searching for it and land on such video…which is adult in nature…Is it good?
    Regarding SERP: Is it mandatory to show something from Youtube or metacafe even if it’s not relevant?? Google should tweak it’s algo to show only relevant article including video. If there is none, don’t show it…Such irrelevant videos will be on SERP but the position should not be first page atleast.
    Regarding Title: Since this is spotted after Panda 2.5 update…I used word Google panda..As it is this post is for readers & not for search engine. Using Noindex and nofollow tag!!

    Ok ok, it doesnt matter, but, i think its really hard for them to tell what video clip from youtube that have “gmail” in title is relavant. This one have that, and their engine think its relavant, thats why we see it in first page of search results. I agree that this is mistake, but … i think its really hard to create something really relevant. I didnt comment on your title and i dont think you do because of serp, i’m just telling that this have nothing to do with panda, panda is, afaik, just a codename for removing and fighting with content farms. I saw youtube clips on first page on search results even before we heard about panda.

    Okay I agree the problem may not be with Google panda but at least the Google search quality raters is responsible for it. Google has countless number people from all around the world who are employed to determine whether the page meets the quality or not and the keywords are relevant or not. That adult video is not related to keyword “gmail” and this reflects the failure of Google’s Human Search Quality Raters.

    Its not just gmail.com search harsh. Try http://www.google.com and you will find similar results. This is one of the main reasons, people and many businesses prefer to use Bing.

    I’m not going to pretend to understand the mechanics behind Google Panda but I do know that since it was implemented my traffic has pretty much doubled and I am very happy with this, even if I have no idea why. :)

    Maybe, they have programmed the algorithm to rank YouTube videos on the front page with that keyword, without testing for relevancy such that their search results appear more dynamic.

    Ofcourse It is panda effect , It’s not a ‘mistake’ or bug , google have panda algorithm or whatever technique which is wrong . How can one expect a video from metacafe instead of gmail ?

    Google is still showing this result. Google should consider and correct this result. This seems a blatant promotion of Gmail.

    Quite nice observation. Google panda has never been stable and it is not just this one but many other examples wherein users have been complaining about.
