Here is my input from the latest update. From our portfolio of about half a dozen websites, all of whom have been affected by Panda at one point or other, only one has seen movement this time. This one was beaten up in each Panda version but I refused to change a thing because I was so convinced Google was wrong and I was right. Then miraculously, in April it saw an uptick to be smacked again on June 8/9 update. Now it is back to the pre-June 8/9 levels.
All I can conclude is that G has no clue what it is doing it and at this point they cannot go back to pre-Panda days. It is hard to know if the company considers it a success -- we can all agree that its original mission of destroying content farms has been a failure because they are actually thriving like never before -- but owners of good websites are definitely bewildered.
I mean how can it be that my website was so bad at one time that it had to be Pandalized and then brought back in April even though I made no change, to be smacked again seven weeks later, and then restored again 2 weeks later? I fail to understand how all those Ph.D's at Google can be so bad. I think a real panda would have done a much better job designing the algorithm.
