What is Google panda new algorithm Update February 2011?

Google panda is the Google's new algorithm which aims to detect the site which having copied content and penalized them. Many of the sites has lost their rankings because of the copied content but it remain a blessing for the unique content holders.
Google Panda refers to the changes introduced in 2011 to the search algorithm used by Google to improve Internet search results. The change aims to lower the rank of "low-quality sites" in search results and return high-quality sites to Google's users.

Soon after the Panda rollout, many websites,including Google's webmaster forum, became filled with complaints of scrapers/copyright infringers getting better rankings than sites with original content. At one point, Google publicly asked for data points to help detect scrapers better. Google's Panda has received several updates since the original rollout in February 2011, and the effect went global in April 2011. To help affected publishers, Google published an advisory on its blog, thus giving some direction for self-evaluation of a website's quality.

If you feel like you’ve been unjustifiably hit by the Google Panda Update, Google recommends that you let them know in this forum thread. For other resources, that may help you, we recently created this Delicious stack of Panda resources (which by the way is still a work in progress. Feel free to share other resources you think would be helpful, and we’ll consider adding them).

You can be as strict or as liberal as you require to suit your site needs. The filtering is opt-in and the default settings provide good protection against markup commonly associated with Web site attacks.

How to Remove the META GENERATOR Tag in Joomla 1.7

How to remove and replace Meta Tag Generator Information in Joomla 1.7

<meta name="generatorcontent="Joomla! 1.7 - Open Source Content Management" />

In Joomla 1.7, the system automatically creates a META Generator tag that you might want to change or hide.
The default tag looks like this:
<meta name="generator" content="Joomla! 1.7 - Open Source Content Management" />
There is no way within Joomla to change or remove this tag, so you have to put a little line of PHP in your template.
Edit your template and look for this line:
<jdoc:include type="head" />
Just above that line, paste in the following : 
<?php $this->setMetaData('generator','my site'); ?>
The two lines together should look like this:
<?php $this->setMetaData('generator','my site'); ?>
<jdoc:include type="head" />
In the above code, substitute your custom generator tag value in place of the words my site. You May write your domain name in place of this meta tag.
Because this hack is in your template, you don’t have to worry about the next upgrade to Joomla overwriting hacked core files.
Enjoy Joomla Platform and Make World More Informed with a lot of Joomla Based CMS...

Putting Website in Maintenance Mode With .htaccess

Your website need constant maintenance & up gradation. This is the time when you  you need to put up a “maintenance mode” page while working on the site (e.g. while moving a site to a different server). What’s the best way of doing that? First you create a small, static HTML page that will appear to your visitors, then you put this at the top of your .htaccess file:
  • RewriteEngine On
  • RewriteBase /
  • RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/berightback\.html$
  • RewriteRule ^(.*)$ [R=307,L]

If you still need to be able to access the live site while you perform the maintenance, you can add a condition permitting requests from your IP address. This line should be placed after the RewriteBase / line:
  • RewriteCond %{REMOTE_ADDR} !^00\.000\.000\.000

Be sure to replace the zeros in 00\.000\.000\.000 with the digits from your own IP address, which you can find
