Thanks Tedster for the Panda iterations list! Sorry I didn't think to check the hot topics for that, I should have.
So here is every Panda run in relation to what impact each had on my site...
PANDA RUN Feb 24, 2011 - My site is pandalized, I make changes.
PANDA RUN April 11, 2011 - My site is pandalized even heavier. I make no further changes.
PANDA RUN May 10, 2011 - Panda runs, decides that even though my site has been vastly improved, my site should stay pandalized and nothing changes. I make no further improvements of substance from this point forward and the site stays the same (or gets slightly worse since I increased the number of ads here).
PANDA RUN June 16, 2011 - Even though my site has already been the same through 2 different PANDA runs (except now it has more ads), Panda decides that I should no longer Pandalized, removes the Panda penalty and I start to recover.
PANDA RUN July 23, 2011 - Panda runs, still likes my site, I stay recovered. I make not changes to my site except an upgrade to the server which makes it faster.
PANDA RUN August 12, 2011- Still my site stays recovered through this Panda run, confirming that yep, Panda got it right and everything is cool... or so it seems.
PANDA RUN September 27, 2011 - For some reason Panda decides that the previous 3 Panda runs were completely wrong and reapplies exactly the same penalty it applied to me back on Feb 24... even though my site has been vastly improved since then and even though other Panda runs thought my site, the exact same site it has just penalized, was great.
Looked at like this... WTF?
