How many people have taken a dislike to our furry little friends in the last week. They don't seem to be as cute as they once were?

Are Panda's more cuddly than penguins?

    Haha, maybe Google is trying to destroy our love for cute animals?

    Not at all.

    And - unlike snapper, it must be said - one doesn't find them on the menu, either.

    Penguins are my favorite animal, and always have been. I don't think any less of them just because Google wanted another 'P' word to continue a theme but lacked the vocabulary to come up with a more appropriate animal name for their update. Since it seems that it indiscriminately shreds the SERPs and leaves skeleton sites with little or no content floating at the top, 'piranha' would have been a better choice.

      Rumor says, they named the update after The Penguin, Gentleman of Crime, one of Batman's oldest enemies, DC Comics supervillain. Because Google people are geeks and geeks love comics

        Both Panda and Penguin gave us mixed results, especially for the 2 & 3 tier backlinks strategy we were using - so not sure which one to hate more

        That's what I thought of when I first heard they named it Penguin. I thought of The Penguin from Batman and not the cute bird. I used to have nightmares about the Penguin when I was little!

    I love penguins and pandas; but think Google should have done some more research before combining the two...

    Both the animals chose to represent the updates are black and white in colour. Is Google trying to send a subliminal message about black and white hat SEO ;-)

    I think fox would be a good name.
    Penguin is a good name from one perspective: Right now the whole internet is similar to the way Penguin is walking.

    Ha ha, I love Penguins! But yea, they should have called it the shark or the snake update though. But I guess I can't complain about the update since none of my sites have been touched yet. Actually my sites are still moving up in the rankings.
