May I ask when your domains got affected by Panda? The exact date? Do you've duplicate content on your site or blank pages?
I'm looking to conclude something and I believe when the Panda algo was rolled out the damage was DONE on the same say to all SERPs. The OPs domains just got this so I don't believe It is Panda.
I gained about 30% more traffic in Panda because I'm posting only unique on-topic LSI content, more than 1000 words on each post. Yet My rankings are down to hell since May 13 and I don't even know what is happening. I'm not cross linking anyone and just have one way links.
I've read on other forums people reporting that all their rankings vanished and came back like in two weeks. Its just strange.
Google has already said that there is nothing competitors can do to harm your site. If you report Spam (like you did regarding cross linking) and If google also sees that as a clear case of spam, they might do take some again.
But, what about the guys who are not linking to anyone? How competitors can sabotage them?
