Sure, Google uses the various accounts to establish common ownership. Once that's done, removing Analytics or anything else will not make Google forget what it already knows.
Those $3 articles written by software are doing better than content written by expert in the area
Sorry folks - I had to remove a block of discussion from this thread because it was a direct review of a member's website.
This whole thing just seems like such a hit and miss affair.
Q. When you guys roll out new algorithms, filters, and patches some good sites end up getting filtered out with the bad. Do you pre-test most of the algorithms prior to launching them? How do you know how strongly to apply filters? By default do you usually lean on one side or the other and then tweak your way back?
A. "We always put algorithmic changes into our test harnesses to poke and prod in lots of different ways. But you also have to be adaptive. If someone in the outside world notices an issue after a launch that you didn't notice, it's important to take that feedback and act on it, and also to try to improve the testing procedure to cover that in the future. We usually have a pretty strong sense of whether something will be a large-impact launch or not. But you can't completely avoid having a large impact with a launch. An example might be if you're replacing a large subsystem in the crawl-index-serve pipeline. We continually go back and improve or replace sections of our system. Sometimes the results can't be bit-for-bit compatible in output, so you have to do the best you can. Update Fritz in 2003 is the canonical example of that; you can't go from a batch-based search engine to an incrementally-updated search engine without some visible impact. To answer your last question, I personally lean toward softer launches; webmasters never need any extra stress. But sometimes launches can't be made completely soft or invisible, as I mentioned."

how long can a person wait to recover if they've been crushed?
@ohno Are you saying you lost traffic due to Panda and recovered it all? Because if so, you would be the first.
only the title of an article showing above the fold
can someone logically explain why ehow.com has apparently (searchmetrics and sistrix) some gains and ehow.co.uk on the other hand a massive drop, doesnt that devalue everything that has been said and analyzed so far, and in the end it means not even Google has a clue whats going on, i am just wondering...
things are just TOO f*cked up for google to just leave it like that
The results were nonsense and my site was affected, but after a month and a half I think after the update, everything got back to "normal" without any intervention on the site.
