Is the Google Python update going to constrict rankings?

The SEO world is a funny place. The truly infatuated people are either completely out of touch or 1 or 2 days ahead of the rest of us by monitoring search results like scientists who measure vibrations in the earth’s crust. Regardless, at some point there will be a new algorithm that comes out. People will argue and disagree over the name, some will want to be the first to name it, or maybe Google will give it an official name. But chances are it will start with a P and either be cute, lame, or a little bit of both.

The names often start with a “P”. Previous picks include Panda, Penguin, Possum, Pigeon, Phantom, etc. So what will the next one be called?

Possible P picks:

  • Panther
  • Parrot
  • Parakeet
  • Peacock
  • Pelican
  • Pig
  • Pheasant
  • Pirhana
  • Platypus
  • Polar Bear
  • Polecat
  • Poodle
  • Porcupine
  • Puffin
  • Puma
  • Pygmy
  • Python

I think the Pirhana algorithm would take a chomp out of search results. Maybe the python would constrict the ranking of spammers. Who knows.

What would the next algorithm do and what would you name it?
