Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
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.

I've read several reports from webmasters saying that they've been released from Panda
Signed in search is personalised.
which begs the question "What does a normal user who is signed-in actually see?"
I bet it's nothing like my results.

Just FYI, in the past week I've seen a huge increase in scrapers spoofing the http_referer to make it look like it's coming from Google search. If I didn't have several layers of scraper detection, I'd be fooled into thinking my traffic from Google was improving.
Just learnt that there was a Philippine Spike for pandalized sites on June 6. Do any one see it on your graphs?
Some public traded companies, some with tens of millions of backlinks. I have watched many take radical redesigns with no recovery and apparent further decay after redesign.
I dont think you the webmaster or SEO can do a damn thing to change what was put into play with Panda and you are wasting your time.
Who knows what worked.
