Iíve been watching folks post about template design, colors, ad placement, adsense, background colors and missing certifications. I donít think that this stuff has much to do with the change.
None of what you have shown during your sudden emergence into the discussion disputes what we have been speculating about for 8 weeks. You joined the cause after Panda 2 and after some sites started to see recovery.
You definitely provide useful insight, which we can add to our list of possible factors, but your results do not disprove our suppositions.
Incidentally, some of us who have speculated about those things, and made changes accordingly (following information gleaned from the Google patents and website credibility studies), are seeing remarkable recovery. My traffic is 70% restored just in the past 72 hours. Perhaps they are factors after all...among hundreds of factors working in non-linear/statistical models.
