@chrisv1963 I don't need statistics or anything else to draw one simple conclusion: Panda is crap and the Google "engineers" no longer know what they are doing.
You are only seeing trees, look for the wood!
I think I understand what Panda is, something of how it works and what it is aimed at achieving. At it's core Panda is absolutely brilliant. At the edges it has had unexpected results. I suspect that what the various iterations of Panda are attempting to do is remove the unexpected effects. The trouble is what is happening is they are getting a different set of unexpected effects.
I've come to the conclusion that for my main site the demotion it has suffered was an intended consequence of Panda. I think I know why and I think I know how to fix it but I'm waiting. This is our low season and I have time to learn more before I jump in and make changes.
I suspect it is much harder to understand a demotion when it is an unexpected consequence of Panda.
