When more than a year ago Google came up with the idea of Panda update in its search engine rankings algorithm, the industry took it by surprise, especially the ones who were relying heavily on organic traffic. We saw decline of big web portals like E-Zine Articles and others. SEO experts termed Panda as “link building killer”. Now as Google has launched Panda update 3.3, things have become more serious. Only those who can tackle Panda Update 3.3 well will succeed while others will fail and will face organic traffic issues.
Apart from Panda update, according to Google’s official blog, 40 key changes were made in Google search system. This has really changed the way web searches will be made in future and the way websites appear against those search queries.

My advice to you will be to stop doing any link building spam if you are doing. Only follow white hat SEO techniques. Get quality links that are genuine be it high quality press releases, articles, blog posts or referral links from high PR websites.
Is it time to say goodbye to forum signature links, blog comment links and other forms of link spam. If you won’t, you will face the music and Panad 3.3 will not forgive you.
