Penguin Punishes Pages - Panda Punishes Sites

Msg#: 4513929 posted 9:18 pm on Oct 30, 2012 (gmt 0)

I have made changes to a penguinized site and seen immediate recovery on lots of terms. This is somewhat different to Panda where the whole site is penalised.
Has anyone else observed this?

Do you mean that you didn't have to wait for a Penguin update to see the effects?

In which case you didn't have a problem with Penguin.

Yep, you most likely were not affected by Penguin.

I was hit on October 5, so definitely Penguin Update. My homepage dropped 500 places and is yet to recover. What I was able to do was recover all the internal pages by restructuring the site and internal links. This was effected within a couple of days, so no didn't need to wait for Penguin refresh.

What I thought was interesting was that it wasn't a whole site demotion that people have described Panda as but almost a page by page penalty.
