It is estimated by many, including some top Google officials that the roll-out of the April 21st Google Mobile Update will be followed by a drop in Google search results for millions of website rankings. Google officials are also quoted as saying that this update will affect a larger volume of website rankings than that of past Panda or even Penguin updates.

d) "Content Analysis" is the examination of the "Anchor Text" used and its respective percentage when compared to the overall backlink "Anchor Text" profile.
