thanks for sharing your story,
to come to your question...
So how have you overcome Panda?
I treated Google since the Florida Update as if they do not exist. I deinstalled on that day the Google Toolbar. Stopped optimizing beyond the "obvious on text", stopped link building and started to treat my visitors as once in a life time opportunity. My goal from that day on was to make sure that a new visitor to my page has lots of reasons to "remember" me. I teamed up with well known experts in my niches and gave them a platform to do stuff there with us, which than created new visitors.
All in all i havent felt Panda, the more i treat Google like a cheap who**e the more she begs for attention (more traffic via serps)
... my only quest since Florida was how i can make a free google visitor a visitor that remembers me without needing Google again... I still have a long way to go, but if Google shuts down tomorrow, i wouldnt feel it much...
