Are you saying that some sub domains of About and WebMd gained , some lost? I have been trying to find out the impact of Panda on subdomains.
Yes, this is what I'm saying.
I'm using Hitwise to identify winners and losers. Seems to be a pretty accurate benchmark - correlates to change in the SERPs. Change is week ending 4/9 and 4/16. Positive moved up and negative moved down. Rank in health information category is based on traffic.
Yes, I'm saying some moved up and others down. I'm not showing any sites that moved less than five positions. One of my sites moved down 10 positions and we lost 60% of our Google traffic.
Many of the WebMD sites almost fully recovered for the week ending 4/24. Best I can tell, WebMD made no changes. Bet there is a story here.
I hope I'm allowed to post these. I removed the actual domains.
