If you were effected by Panda 3.5, did you show a traffic dip on 4/19 or 4/20?

Apparently, Google confirmed Panda 3.5 on 4/19 and then Panda 3.6 soon after, on 4/27

Confirmed: Panda Update 3.6 Happened On April 27th [searchengineland.com]

Interesting. I didn't know about Panda 3.6. A nice boost in traffic from 3.5 only to be mostly taken away only a week later.

April 23/24 was the date several of my already Pandalized sites were hit again. These were the ones I hadn't developed or adjusted in most cases except by the addition of noindex, nofollow to thin pages.

One site I had developed with longer pages didn't get hit this time.

Another site that was high in rankings got demoted one place by a very long page. (It ends with 200 Comments, lol!)

It seems like a turn of the Panda dial to kick the anorexics and promote the obese.

It is also possible that noindex, nofollow doesn't necessarily help your site any more - i.e., if you have too few quality pages.

Size of pages and size of site could be important factors (more important than previously).
