Since the first version of Google Panda (algorithm introduced by Google in 2011), the rules of the web writing game have been changed: Panda has not only changed the results of search engines, but also the way to design a SEO-optimized content.

Before Panda, it was more or less easy to make your website appear at the top of the search... sometimes in an absurd way, because a content farm could be better referenced than a major brand's website or a word's Wikipedia page, it was time to optimize Google for users.
