coachm, I understand you are ready to quit fighting the algo wars but still would like to understand how you could loose so much while keeping about the same traffic. Here's a possible idea I've seen in my own web business:
While Panda has slammed what used to be my prime keywords, it has elevated me for other less-precise long tail searches. I am considering that this is shifting my audience into a new profile. Wether this new profile has significant differences in how they respond to my AdSense, Amazon, and other business content remains to be seen, but it could possibly be a gigantic factor for some businesses, while almost nothing for others.
I'll be the first to admit this is mostly guesswork in the dark. I couldn't tell an elephant from a snake at this stage of the Panda episode.
