Alright, Indyank and everyone, I guess I will share a part of my experiment.
Few days ago I revised my top landing pages content by adding a couple of images, paragraph or two of quality content and meta-description that is perfectly readable. As of now, I've lost 20% traffic on these pages. Again. I lost traffic on Pandanized pages.
Oh, concerning duplicate content, I wholeheartedly agree not to waste our time on it. I've never encouraged duplicate content yet, like you said, it's a shame to see Google pulling us all the way down.
The way I see it, whenever we make changes to our website, whether it's a theme change or amending the link structure, Google often takes about few days (almost a week, maybe) to bring the pages back to the top.
I'll update this thread if I see any positive improvement.
Should you all just quit tracking positions and keywords and their SERP updates?
I've quit tracking for a while, although I do keep track of the pages that rank higher. The pillar articles that brings a lot of visitors needs to be checked regularly, or so I believe.
