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?
i haven't been hit by Panda but, there's always a but, it's only because we have been posting quality content over a variety of sites.
For me, it's clear that big name sites are being given preferential treatmnet in the Google SERPS. It's an easy option for any search engine, just give the punters the same old big names and forget trying to analyse what their search might actually want.
The big names are the recipients of the lost traffic from smaller sites. The saddest thing of all is that Bing are are even worse at this compared to Google.
