Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
Some publishers have fixated on our prior Panda algorithm change, but Panda was just one of roughly 500 search improvements we expect to roll out to search this year. In fact, since we launched Panda, we've rolled out over a dozen additional tweaks to our ranking algorithms, and some sites have incorrectly assumed that changes in their rankings were related to Panda.
short version is that it's not data that's updated daily right now. More like when we re-run the algorithms to regen the data.
The fact is that I successfully tested moving penalised content to another domain or subdomain - the results were VERY positive, all redirected pages got their rankings back or got even better positions. It's sad, ... really stupid... this is my point; nothing more, nothing less (I mentioned this experience of mine previously in this forum).
No-one knows when a penalised domain is going to recover, that's why it's better to 301 some content if it's worth it (anyway I'm not going to split my domain to subdomains or other domains as it would look unnatural and also bing doesn't like this - tested myself too - I won't change my site because of some maximally retarded algorithm).
I divided my site to 4 subdomains some time ago to test it. Almost all pre-panda traffic was back in 5 days!

If the pages were improved they should be golden on the new domain, but you lose any 'juice' from the old domain, when Panda stops being insane.
If pages rank on another domain name is it bad for search? Nope, so it's white hat.
So, what you are saying is improve the content and move to the new domain for quick results.
It's NOT a penalty

all I can say is "it's the content." Really, strong, well written content that is enjoyable and even exciting to read is what's missing on all of the Pandalyzed site I recently checked out.
As for content, it depends on the field I guess, not every site has articles.

tedster how does that fit with scrapers ranking above the original site?
