can find problems with every site, including this one. But if it causes Panda, Penguin or whatever and if any fix would return is another story. They are a lot of "experts" that claim fixes trolling on webmaster forums, but the fact that barely any site has returned from panda (unless Google changed the algo) shows it isn't easy.
I agree and that's part of the problem with finding a fix. Lots of "know it alls" and "experts" in this muddy business and if you're a lost webmaster already it's hard to know where to turn for real help. It's like trying to find a lost ring in the ocean waves.
Like I said, most people blame everything initially on Panda or Penguin because they don't know any better, and it's no wonder there are so few reported recoveries. There are plenty of other things going on out there besides the "known" Panda/Penguin factors. Other sites are doomed no matter almost what because of the fundamental changes that have been solidifying in the past couple years. Some business models are just not going to work like they used to and unknowing webmasters will continue to throw money at sinking ships until there's absolutely no hope and never know what happened.
The fact that it's not easy is the crux of it all IMO. That's where Google has everyone. Many, many people who have made money in the organic SERPs like to do things the easy way and will not or can not invest the time, money, and effort it requires to get things back on track.
