.. We made purely cosmetic changes. With a more modern look we saw a quick recovery.
The site I referred to above was ... dated, ..less so than the first site that was hit. .... cosmetic changes to its appearance and ... also improved navigation, which had been .. weak. This time we had to wait longer for recovery, which I hope won't be short-term!
In both cases, we made no changes to core site content, which we believe to be strong.
@Doug10 - Recovery posts like this are gold. If only we had more folks with good news stories. And you have 2 sites out of the Panda's grip.
How long did it take for you adjustments to be recognised and worked on?
