Another bit of clarification I'd like to call out from the interview concerns Panda and reconsideration requests:
Eric Enge: As a related question, is a reconsideration request helpful after addressing possible panda issues?
Tiffany Oberoi: Panda is an algorithmic ranking change targeted at promoting high quality sites over low quality sites. Because reconsideration requests will not change the way an algorithm sees your site, a reconsideration request won't help in this case. We recommend focusing your efforts on improving your site so that it will be classified as high quality in the next Panda update. Amit Singhal had some great tips for how to improve your site in this post from Google's Webmaster Central Blog [googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.com]
