noindex 6000 product pages, these pages are short 200 word product specific pages
Product you still sell? If so, keep it... that's your biz, else cut your nose off to spite your face. Panda is what it is and there are no magic ways to get back... but your product is what it is and requires page(s) to describe it.
PANIC is what is driving these conversations...which is understandable. But as a seller of product(s) G is not my only avenue...just the largest. There are other methods and SEs providing traffic and if product is desired by consumers can be sold.
KILLING 6,000 product pages, and a willingness to do so, indicates...to me...those 6,000 product pages are not 6,000 products.
Something ELSE is the Panda... and that's what needs to be discovered (which we can't, G is not giving out that info) and addressed.
