One other thing to say - this is for our US sites - the trends I'm reporting - on Canadian sites, the dates are similar but the trend is different. Our traffic remained consistent right until panda 2.1 in mid april, then we lost about 20% - it has remained flat since then but we haven't made significant changes in terms of links or new descriptions. I did recently update 3 canadian sites and they are showing early signs of recovery.
in terms of bounce rate this is where it gets interesting - at the beginning of feb, the bounce rate on canadian sites jumped from 25% to 60% and stayed there to mid may when it jumped again to 80%. Mid June it dropped to 10% and is still there.
