Our 11 yr old info-commerce site was battered with Panda 1 (-35%) & then pandaped again with Panda 2 (-35% April 10)... thereafter, no recoveries or downgrades either with any of the iterations....stuck like a rock! Then, October 14th (Panda 3 in my books) has seen a major sitewide recovery so that panda 2 losses have been overcome but still below Panda 1. Holding still so far across the site, so I felt fit to post it here.
Roughly the same story with one of my site (informational, community), pandalized in February, then April, hopelessly flat lined ever since, first signs of recovery on September 26 and then, dramatic recovery on October 14. I'm trying hard not to get too excited because I know it can turn anytime. What have I done? More like what have I not done, so it would be really hard to say what worked, maybe nothing I did and a Panda tweak simply pushed my site in the acceptable threshold. I still have other sites penalized by Panda however.
