Unfortunately for me, I still don't see my traffic back that was lost Sept 23rd. My rankings continue to bounch around a lot, but I can't get above 5th for any specific phrase. Many phrases I was #1 for prior to Sept 23rd.

Did anyone who's site is coming back make any changes to their site since Sept 23rd, or did you leave things as is?

I have some of my traffic back also. 25% of what it used to be anyway. We did quite a few changes so it is hard to nail down exactly what it was. We killed a lot of the links going out to our affiliates and instead put their products into a datbase with the only links going out was to their shopping cart. Any content that we considered duplicate content we blocked from the search engines. Seems to be working somewhat.

I have all my traffic back, plus a little bit more.

I did change a lot of things on the site, both stuff that might have been causing problems, and things I wanted to change anyway.

only about half of traffic is back.
it would be realy interesting to know, what kind of filter they applied on September 23 and then.

A few of my main keywords are back...traffic is still comparitively low to what it was pre September for me though.

traffic lost on 1st week of August still missing and it really sucks. I'm still updating the site at great cost of $ and time and get no visitors from Google. Today marks seven days from when the last redirect link was removed. I asked the site owner to put a robots.txt with the URL on and removed it via Google.

The page was removed within the day and I also removed virtually every other page I had and changed the path on my files so I would start fresh. I do great with &filter=0 but 50+ without it for a few keywords I track.

All the pages have been removed but when I search for a sentence from front page it says 1 out 2 and only my site shows. That other one is the removed page from the other site I suppose. Is this normal?

Interesting, I noticed a big drop in traffic to my blog around the same time you noticed an increase in traffic to your sites. Wonder if there is a relation?

Ill start a thread on that topic. But I felt it was important to note.
