just a thought - some were 'hit' by panda - lost business, etc... - and loads of posts here on WW about it. BUT someone got those 'sweet' spots on rankings and making a happy living now - but we dont hear much about 'postpanda' success stories. Anyone to shear?
The problem with panda is the bad traffic quality. Enjoying top positions for the wrong long tail searches does not help. So i'm not sure "sweet spots" exist like before. You get a lot of one hit wonders (often from the wrong countries), window shoppers at best and they hardly convert into sales.
In my case, most of my ecom channels enjoy major top spots for related keywords BUT they simply get very bad traffic. Large numbers but very low conversions lately.
I used to seeing great conversions on that same channels for years, but not anymore. Panda seems to have killed most of them (or continue to insist on sending them the "wrong traffic" in other words).
Panda is the last thing the web really needs in such very hard economic times.
