Wanderingmind, one of my competitors who gained a lot in panda2 has 2 rows of trusted certifications and shields across the bottom of every page (I didn't even know there were that many). He also has hundreds of thousands of products with manufacturer descriptions.
I see something similar with a competitor who SOARED to #1 in Panda. Trusted logos all over the site and fake Facebook "Like" button from some other domain which shows thousands of likes. None of the logos are valid. Their existence on the site could be boosting visitor confidence and overall site performance with respect to bounce back, etc; but surely Google can do a simple SSL check to see if it's valid. The same with other well-known certifications.
