Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 184.108.40.206
Is anyone going to offer anything constructive?difficult as all sites are different and there may be factors combining in a particular way per site or rather, I think, per page or section. Working the other way .. what have people done that have made no difference ? that may be more telling and debunk some ideas.
This place actually should be the place where collectively webmaster could say listen, this Panda has destroyed my livelihood. It's ruined my finances. It's turned my world upside down.
I don't see how anyone can run a business over time by trying to "guess" what's supposed to be done.
People do share that kind of thing here... a lot. But part of my answer is "no - I don't want to read a forum that's ONLY full of complaints and giving up."
To shoulder shrug about Panda is a bit puzzling at least to my mind
i would like to add, that the harder i try to get rid of Google the more it rewards me with even more free traffic,so even though my free traffic from Google is now percentage wise considerably lower than five years ago the total number has gone up, in a way the more i try to get rid of Google the more it rewards me, go figure... ( i know i could just no index everythign but why ignore the free traffic but rather do something with it)...
Another. My books are published and sold through various ways. So, it makes sense, that since I get royalties from my books, that I'd link to amazon, where they are sold. But wait. Am I being penalized because I have two links that look like affiliate links to my OWN books?

Me neither....there are a lot alternative theories
But even a cursory view of the hundreds (or thousands) of postings at this venue since Pancer was unleashed on the unsuspecting WWW will substantiate that for many of the webmasters that participate here, the movement of large brands to higher positions has occurred.
