My sense has long been that Google tailors their algorithm to different types of sites, different taxonomies if you will. That didn't just begin with Panda.
Normally the last thing I'd be doing is adding more pages to a Panda prone site, but this thread fascinates me as it posed as a success in the face of the update.
Tedster- could taxonomy & usabilty scrutiny have been an element that has been ramped up in this update?
By default , I'm thinking if done well , it's a form of engagement that presumably Google might like.
hispdcha- A few questions :
On those pages would you say users interact heavily with the navigation elements ( county / neigbourhood / listings ) ? , and
What is the bounce rate like on your listing pages ?
What is and/or how is the code base for the search elements generally set up in your vertical.
