We got hit by Panda in Feb and got out in June.
Starting Sept 28, keywords have gone done in rankings. The same keywords affected by the Feb Panda were affected this time, by 25-70% decline in traffic. Overall traffic decreased by about 13%
One thing I noticed is that significant traffic decline comes from international Google -- e.g. google.com.ph, google.com.in, google.com.ng -- where traffic fell by 60%. But traffic decrease from Google.com is only 14%
When we got out of Panda in June, we really didn't do anything. We made no changes in our site when we were Pandalized.
Someone here said that for those who were Pandalized and didn't change anything, there's no guarantee that you can't be hit again. I suppose he nailed our situation on the head :o(
The bad thing is that our eCPM for Adsense also went down the toilet starting Tuesday, the same day when traffic started to fall.
