Could 301 redirects from a page that you removed to a page that has a similar - but not an exact topic - cause problems with Panda and Penguin - even of those pages DIDN'T have inbound links?
I am not talking about from an internal page to the home page.
I am referring from the "imported stone widgets" page to just the "widgets" page.
I am trying for the life of me to figure out all my traffic drops.
The only traffic drop that jibes with the dates of a known algo update is the latest one with Penguin 2.0
All the other traffic drops happen around the time of Panda 3.2 and panda 3.3 (April and May of 2012) but none of them are sharp, overnight drops. they are more a slide over a period of two weeks.
