Panda has well and truly hit the UK today, and I've seen a whole group of sites in the same industry hammered in terms of their results.
These sites have the same thing in common, they are smaller sites that have been enjoying good rankings for a good few years now, out-performing a lot of the 'big brands' in the same industry.
They also have a lot of display advertising/adsense on the pages, as well as having lots of very focused content and internal linking that has given them their strong rankings in the past.
As we're feeling the effects of Panda later than those of you in the US, is there anyone who has made a significant change to their site and seen their rankings come back?
Has anyone, for example, removed some ad blocks on their pages to a number that is 'less excessive' and then seen their rankings return? Looking through the threads on here I've seen lots of people suffering after Panda, but not really seen anyone come on and say that they were hit hard, but made some changes and saw their rankings return. Is it too soon, or simply the case that people don't know what to do to regain their lost rankings?
