Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 18.104.22.168
some of my pages on hubpages are #1 and make a couple hundred $$ per day (and yes they are #1 for high cpc/high traffic keywords which Panda definitely included). Same about EZA and Buzzle, I use a lot of Web2 sites.
crobb305: Google can't read and judge that you have good reserach on there. Come on! It needs signals to judge it - backlinks, tweets, fb likes, etc.

I am now doing this aggressively and not pursuing my "one site" objective where I create branded sites etc.
Just give weight to the good stuff and ignore stuff that you can't score as quality
50,000 pages or more reporting any significant recovery of any kind?
Why not just employ quality raters and manually downgrade domains that are mass content farms
I remember the old Inktomi blacklist that carried over to Yahoo. Reviewers were banning "affiliate sites" from the search results. I was on that blacklist for 5 years. Review after review, they kept seeing the same affiliate link. In my traffic logs, I could see the reviewer go straight to a page with an affiliate link -- nevermind the 120 pages of unmonetized content. Unfortunately, the reviewers weren't looking at the content. They would find an affiliate link and hit the ban button, making the judgment in under 5 seconds before leaving. So, I think it's good to have an objective measure. At least we have hope of recovery since it is algorithmically determined.
It felt great when arrogant yahoo search died, I LOVED IT
