Total traffic was at 40% of pre-Panda level, (30% during Easter) - now stands at 60%. This is a 50% increase within just 2 - 3 days, disregarding low Easter levels. Trend seems to hold at present.
It sounds like you and I are seeing the exact same recovery rates. Are you observing phrase-specific improvements, with sensitivity to wording (i.e., reversing the order of the words will change your ranking drastically)?
I know we should probably be talking about this in the Update thread. I'm just wondering if there is a phrase-based connection from Pandalization and restoration. I am also seeing a gradual update to my site: search (gradually displaying new title tags that I added last week). It could be that ranking is being restored as the internal pages get updated cache. In other words, maybe this is the first update that is allowing for real ranking improvements based on our quality modifications to internal pages, and we are seeing a gradual traffic increase each day as those internal changes/quality scores/etc get calculated.
