"We also have a standard content design and when editors step outside of the standard a number of times I will schedule a meeting with that editor and see if there's a better fit. Again, it comes down to 1:1 conversation at our…"

Thoughts on Google Panda?

I've been considering how Panda might impact what I do within the content on our website. In the end, I really think it will simply push me to strive for highest possible quality of content, which is a good thing! I think it will have more implications for our web designer, who works with unique tracking and the rest of our analytics efforts. Anyone have any thoughts?
