Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
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]
my site that got taken out by Panda 2.1 has returned
(2) add some gratuitous, albeit unique, content to my second-tier pages
I'd still like to know whether, all else equal, a deeper link will rank lower than one that's higher up in a site's link structure
We, the people, don't know. But on each Panda, new sites are caught so either G targeted different sites or they added new things in the algo. Then the next one some of the newly hit sites come back, either by fixing it or G removing that filter. We don't know.
When Google does these updates, I was under the impression that they were adding or adjusting filters and not "rerunning" the data. Are we certain that they are rerunning the data?
