Panda eats Ciao?

John Moe Apr 18, 2011

Here’s another story on the same front. Ciao.co.uk is a site owned by Microsoft that has been at the front of some legal action against Google in Europe for anti-competitive issues. It’s a customer review site where people can post what they think of various goods and services and compare prices. Traffic to Ciao is down a pretty astonishing 94% since Panda went live and Microsoft is pretty mad at Google (as if they weren’t already). Google, for its part, says that Ciao was not specifically targeted.
