why would content size matter? We have two different arguments here and we need to be meeting somewhere in the middle.
We start off with a discussion from a simple idea that content size may be a cause to be pandalised. Then on the opposite end of that you have tedster with such a complex idea (although much more realistic). Reading tedsters post makes me think too much for this time of night that it gives me a headache (no offense, Ted).
Instead of trying to get down to every little detail that panda might be about, why not go with a high quality format? Why not study high quality websites that have not faltered to panda or have been improved by panda, and just get a feeling for what google wants based on these winners.
You can study your opponent till the end of time, but you will never have the secret sauce, so why not work on your game as much as you can since that is all you can really control?
