A number of prominent UK technology news sites have seen their Google rankings drop substantially after the search engine rolled out its “Panda” update, intended to demote sites which scrape content from others, to the UK and other English-language Google users.The update also demotes one of the complainants to the European Commission, Microsoft-owned Ciao, which will almost vanish from many searches as a result of the downgrading.
