Unfortunately, content is not the king and never was - I wish it was.
I learned it the hard way, I think that content is a 'prince' at the maximum - Quantity is the king and the organizational structure of the site is the queen.
Why? Content farms publish thousands of articles each day. Most of articles are published in several places. These are duplicate content but Searc hengines donít have a clue which is the original. They miss most of the times.
Most articles there aren't that good and some fraction of them succeed because of the variety of related articles/topics and ..the brand name of the content farm.
Social media signals and others are artificial ways to find quality.
We all know that Bing/Yahoo have more quality searches. Visitors from these SE stay more on the site.
The cure to the Panda is to continue writing and publishing. A dead site (un-updated) is the most killing factor in my point of view.
Let G work hard to index your site.
