Who would win in a battle of the Facebook Ban Bot and the Google Panda?
A lot of buzz around Facebook’s Ban Bot that is taking out developers apps that they determine are spammy. Naturally like with the Panda update there is a lot of concern around the impact that will have on legitimate sites as well. Google’s Panda update in March of 2011 brought done both poor quality landing pages and search engine results as well as some actual valuable to end users kind of sites.
While many developers switched to looking at the opportunity that social media like Facebook offered after the Panda Update, they now many need to think twice. Facebook won’t put up with poor content, unethical behavior and poor content for their users. They are working hard, as they should, to keep their users happy.
The bad part of this is that good content usually suffers as well. The upswing? Well, it does appear that unlike Google, Facebook is willing to have a more human approach to fixing issues with the Ban Bot updates.
If you’re a consumer, then it’s likely something you’ll not notice and you’ll be content as you have been. If you’re a spammer, then you’ll not be very happy with facebook at all. And if you’re a legitimate business doing business with social media, then you better check your content, your ads and your apps, because you don’t want to be a another unhappy victim of the ferocious Facebook Ban Bot.
