crobb305: It should not matter to be honest, but i am taking this site out to different hosting for the reason that it was linked from some of my other sites, which were hosted on same IP. I am just trying to weed out whatever the negatives i see.
I would find out what else could be fixed and see if that works. Mind - this is in my area tho.
So much speculation. Its no way to live. Even though I didnt get hit.
I believe, this penalty has a lot to do with excessive ads and thin content.
One of my main site has the qualitative links and to Camouflage my back link profile, i linked it from some of my own sites (related in some way).
I agree - I also doubt that any new backlink, on its own, would undo traffic damage from Panda. A widespread viral event might be different, but even then, Panda recovery is still not commonly being reported no matter what.
Maybe we should do a new study of Google's quality guidelines, point by point, and see how many if any we've missed, for those who got hit by the Panda's paw.
Rome wasn't built in a day. Quality construction takes time. If you order a new mansion, for example, that is over 8,000 square feet. It will take 1 to 2 years to build.
Did Google rank them high for year despite them violating the overly broad guidelines, are the guidelines are a bunch of BS or has Panda gone crazy?
It really is an attempt at a new way of ranking
Google's engineers are probably writing a reinclusion algo to every site it marked with a Panda "X" even as we speak.
There is a possibility that there is a Panda No3 yet to come
