Should we make changes at all since we do not know what Google wanted. We all speculating of this and that while actually pretty much all the site got penalized is no diff then those got benefited.
Right now, I am put all the ads and everything back cause we already lost alot of money and can't afford to take any risk that does not help at all until Google comes out with a new guideline.
My site got 60k/day now only 20k/day that is bleeding 60% total.

Only you can make those business decisions. But I think you're right that an immediate recovery is probably not going to happen.

If you discover some indexing problems, fix them. Technical problems, fix them. Page speed problems, fix it.

Everything else can wait until the dust settles and we all learn a bit more.

(Wish I had followed my own advice... =)

Looking for dead links, server speed problems ( major problems at the time of writing ) , removing old pages, noindexing certain pages, doing "if data not in database anymore do this instead" code

Adding a few new "features", adding new articles.

Basically what I should have been doing anyway if I wasn't lazy.

Except ... doing some A/B testing on specific pages

Like a moron I trusted Google spinsters, no-indexed many pages and lost many clicks no doubt.

I should put a "Now part of Walmart.com" ;) it's probably a quality signal, changes and adding content certainly are not.

haha. Add some author names from Time and CNN. Maybe author reputation/credibility is a factor.

Yeah seriously, why make any changes when Google has refused to tell us why they tanked our sites.

When Google says "jump", don't ask how high. Punch them in the face.

Ask questions later.

WSJ slammed google today over hurting small business and how they were forced to fire people and write crap just for Google.

We may have hit some innocent sites was Google's message to them. Ya think?
