Digging a bit deeper :
Google Sites Revenues – Google-owned sites generated revenues of $5.88 billion, or 69% of total revenues, in the first quarter of 2011. This represents a 32% increase over first quarter 2010 revenues of $4.44 billion.
Google Network Revenues – Google’s partner sites generated revenues, through AdSense programs, of $2.43 billion, or 28% of total revenues, in the first quarter of 2011. This represents a 19% increase from first quarter 2010 network revenues of $2.04 billion.
Google Places ?
Panda ? 12% of search results effected [ Google ] - across claims of 40% of sites effected ( not directly - but certainly indirectly per community estimates )
The resurrection of Pandalized sites isn't going to be re run without very extensive thought behind it. Certainly not before the next round of sites get hit to compensate for the returning ones - to maintain quality and secure revenues . Watch Q2 results
Fiddling at the edges and tweaking sites may be expensive and risky, but what choice do folks have. Until we know - everything remains academic and speculative for siteowners on how they can respond with a degree of certainty. Hats off to those who are preparing.
