Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 184.108.40.206
Google has given us confirmation that they have ran an update to the Panda filter recently.
We have been expecting the Panda 2.2 update based on news coming out of the SMX Advanced conference. Matt Cutts told SMX attendees that Panda 2.2 has been approved, hasnít been rolled out yet, but that should happen soon.
The update hit sometime late last week. I believe Google manually pushed out the Panda 2.2 update around June 16th.

But it would be interesting and revealing to know why a site escaped 1.0 and was caught in 2.1.
Tell us: did you revise you META descriptions as well, so that searchers are more likely to click through to your site based on the SERP squib?
With reworked content that more completely provides the information (or "answer") your long-tail searchers seek, what is the typical reader's next action?
I think it was the type of keyword. Panda 1 sites ranked for the trophy one word and two word keywords. Panda 2.1 sites ranked for three word keywords and long-tails.
Panda 2.1 sites were less important in G's eyes as they were sending less traffic to them.

But you theory could explain why many cheesy 200 or so word single focus 'sites' still rank. They're under the radar where bigger sites that sent spammy signals like too many tags etc were caught. Probably just a mater of time before G removes the smirk from their faces :)
rowtc2, not to cast aspersions, but how do you have traffic numbers for 22/6? Even if you were on the Date line, it would only be 9pm when you posted.Probably a typo, watch him post a traffic graph now :)
As a former hedge fund analyst, and a career webmaster for a credit card site, I was a bit surprised at the lack of news coverage surrounding eHow's plight after the international roll out of Google's (GOOG) algorithm change on April 11.
I wonder how many G engineers are in their private portfolios.
wishful thinking as it can no way be classified as insider trading.
It however does show that G can control the internet economies to a great extent,if it wants.
