and there were a few others. Point being that all the changes were made between June 23 and July 1. All gains were within a week or so. The traffic gains themselves were between 60-80%. Nothing to sneeze at.
Unless Panda run after July 1st I don't know. As others pointed it out Google might just see new content in a new domain with no Panda score so it ranks then pre-panda.
Lets see how long the fix works before jumping on it. I say that because content location shouldn't be the cause of a penalty so moving it won't resolve the problem, it will only immunize other content from it (at best).
Next Panda should be it. Anyway, they have nothing else left to do with all those 'articles,' so they must try whatever might work.
