I wonder if the Panda algo was only run on certain sites, e.g. those in the top 20 for certain keywords?
The reason I wonder this is, I had two sites recover yesterday - but not from Panda. They were both hit back in November with what I suspect was a duplicate content penalty - duplicate content shared across other sites in the network. So I set about fixing that issue but left both sites pretty much alone, and they both really need an overhaul. I am sure if Panda had looked at them they would have been marked down, but one of them now has more traffic than it ever had from Google. Now if this one deserves all this traffic then other sites in the same network certainly do but they've been pandalised and this one hasn't. So maybe it slipped under the radar. Or perhaps it'll get killed off again soon, I'm not holding my breath.
