Since December zombie traffic is gone. Also the OFF periods went away, traffic seems steady all day long. What is new is that since January traffic rises 20 - 30% FR - MO, other days traffic is lower (actually same traffic we allways got) but steady.
Regarding changes, well its hard to say as our main site is alive, means contend added regular and changes to layout, readability and so on are done, improvement there improvement here, but all we change we change for the sake of our visitors or to promote our new services or products. So we are not doing changes by following some tactics (SEO) to satisfy G. Honestly, I think once you start to please G with changes it will never stop and G doesn’t seem to honor it anyway (experience from other sites we operate). Well, ofc all depends in what state (quality, authority) your site is in G eyes!
Our main site is penalized by penguin ( 7 reconsideration requests, no luck) and I personally smell panda on some subsides. However, nothing and nobody is perfect, might be that G looks the same on Websites? Might be that G tolerates mistakes but is suspicious on 100% G pleasing sites? Who knows :-)
