Thank you for sharing kickaxe.
To the people calling this a bad idea....why is this a bad idea? Kickaxe is not saying this is the cure all for panda. In this particular instance, adding a bunch of internal links just so happened to get someone he knows out of the grips of panda.
Quite frankly, it makes sense. Perhaps this site fit the mold of all the other sites that when you look at it, and you really take a hard look at the content, you can not for the life of you understand why this site was hit by panda.
Site navigation is very often overlooked. An easy to use, user friendly site navigation is important to your users and google always says to make your site for your users.
Perhaps google knows this site has good content that is useful, but it sees that the best content is hard to find since its buried deep in the pages with a poor navigation and poor emphasis on the good content.
Maybe in this instance it was not so much about the sites content, but the fact that the sites good content was not being featured in a way that google likes. If your website is 20 pages and 12 of those pages are useful and high quality (in googles eyes) but those pages are not featured prominently, google may not count those pages towards your credit since they feel most visitors will not even find them.
