@walkman, I can't wait that long so I guess I just "eat the crumbs from the rich mans table..."
I don't know why Google has to do all their "testing" on a live system. If I would have done that at work, I'd be fired. They should be able to do extensive testing before letting the damn panda loose in the crystal vase boutique...
I'd say that my site is among the top 10 in US in my area and has been for years but when you see brand new sites popping in in the SERPs it's get kinda' annoying. I bet they haven't been Pandalyzed yet, and hopefully they will soon.
The day yesterday did not turn out too bad after all. I gained some in the evening and so far today it's been so and so. Looks like I never will get back to Pre-panda which means I have lost 75% of my visitors this year.
It's been said over and over here but there seems to be a lot of web masters here posting that has Information sites that have lost a lot of visits. There are some, but not so many, commerce sites posting about loosing visitors except the ones that also have Information about what they are selling. Not sure that makes sense, but I am thinking that Google can't keep the duplicates straight in their algo. It's got to be hard to try to find "who came first, the hen or the egg" in an algo. Maybe you need 1000+ PhD's to figure that one out!
