Hi,
Google Dance is an old term used for the time period when Google sends it's crawler (bot) to crawl the website and check its content. It is said to be happening once in a month, but nobody has got any better idea when Google is indexing the web-page.
I think, many people are concerned about Panda updates now-a-days.

I can answer that, it is part copy and part adaptation from an article posted here:

It is worth noting that this was first published in 2002 when things were very different!!

My understanding is that the Google Dance is something specific that used to happen until about 8 years ago, when the database was updated every 30 days. It then took 2-3 days for the updates to applied to all sites during which time sites could "dance" up and down the rankings until all the updates were in place for all sites. As Google now updates continuously, this particular situation no longer occurs.
Sites do still move up and down the rankings but that is because of action or inaction by them and/or their competitors that is picked up by Google and because of algorithmic changes, not because of the Google Dance.

It's interesting from a historical point of view, but I think the expression is most often used now by those doing SEO who need an excuse when things don't go well

I thought Google was spidering the internet continuously? Would you care to share this tool with us? What is it actually called and where can it be found please.

These two postings are identical - an amazing coincidence? I don't think so either.

The Google dance is a term that was used years ago to describe the fluctuations in ranks that were caused when about every month or so Google would re-index the site As different data centers were updated with the new information results would vary based on which data center your query was directed to.

I think that this particular dance is well and truly over. Thread closed.
