I live in fear that I may slapped again at any point because I still have no idea why
Isn't this exactly what Google wants? From there POV, doesn't this make Panda a total success?
~ We don't know why we fell from grace;
~ We don't know what we need to do to restore our positions;
~ We look above us and are completely perplexed how some of those sites managed to move up.
In other words, the execution and outcome of Panda is almost entirely inscrutable ~ exactly what Google set out to do. No longer can any SEO firm spam the web with "guaranteed first page results", no longer can anyone plug-in certain keywords at certain places and expect a high ranking. Nothing is assured, nothing is understood ~ there is only Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt, which as all authoritarian organizations & countries understand, translates into power and control. Google hit a bullseye ~ market position retained, profits up, SEO down, webmasters confused & scared ~ it's no wonder they are patting themselves on the back.
