Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 126.96.36.199
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.

[edit reason] split from previous thread last week [/edit]
Main Index Ratio of all sites that are affected (3 sites affected of 12) is less than 10%
Pages in the Main Index = site:www.yoursite.com -inallurl:www.yoursite.com
On another note: I noticed that for some domains the index page is not #1. see [google.com...] . Used to be a penalty but the site ranks for its name and keywords.
One thing I tried that was mentioned before on WebmasterWorld was to check into WMT under the HTML suggestions.
For one site I found I had quite a few duplicate meta descriptions and titles which was a problem in the coding of the site that I had done.
