I had one site "recover" from Panda 2 ... HOWEVER, I didn't touch this site ~ whatson
If you haven't recovered by now, and you've made changes, there's probably no reason to think you ever will. ~ Shatner
If there is one thing I believe many of us have learned is that there's no rhyme or reason to Panda. Like an out of control cancer, it goes where it will to wreak its havoc. So as I've said here on multiple occasions, you cannot "fix" your site to rank better with Panda because you hve no idea what Panda considers to be "broken". I totally agree with Shatner's statement "If you think there is more you can do, without negatively impacting your site usability then by all means do it". But don't think you are "fixing" it for Panda, because you're not. You're not because you can't. You can't because Google has not provided guidelines. And they've not provided guidelines because this is a big game to their engineers who have to find something to do to justify their salaries.
THEY have the power, you don't and you won't, so for the sake of your sanity, and to once again quote Shatner, "Assume your pandalization is permanent and move on." Whatever you do from this point on, do it strictly to make things better for your visitors ~ that's reason enough. Do NOTHING for Google's benefit.
