Panda is all about user metrics and producing a good user experience.
I just don't buy it. I've seen sites with great user metrics crushed by Panda. I've seen sites with poor user metrics crushed by Panda. From what I can tell, user metrics on their own don't do much for you. They might be *a* factor, but they're not *the* factor.
The only thing I've found in common with either type of site is thin content (which technically could fall into the 'good user experience' bucket). I know that thin content isn't as sexy of an answer as user metrics, but from the sites I've seen, it's the only real commonality.
