Did a Google dial get turned 09/22? Rankings pre-Panda plus...

Just wondering if anyone has experienced any "amazing" ranking recovery in the last 48 hours?

I normally don't have knee-jerk reactions to ranking shifts (ever in the last 13 years), and did lose about 6-8 spots post-Panda. (minor by some of the post I read here)

Over the last 48 hours, my main site, and "several" customer sites have returned to the top of the serps. I was totally amazed...

Note: I did nothing, absolutely NOTHING to my main site post panda or anytime in the last "several" months to warrent the change. (no link building other than whatever came naturally)

Just wondering...
thanks for your time!

I started seeing an traffic increase from Google last Wednesday evening too, sgt_Kickaxe. Not a lot, but some.

Just within the past hour our traffic from Google has has dropped way down. Overall we had regained half of our traffic after Panda1, now it looks like we've lost all gains.

Something appears to be going on... noticed KW searches coming from Google that I haven't seen before (good ones) - though at the same time I've seen traffic and sales to be 1/2 of what they were yesterday. Who knows! :)

One new site developed post panda, done very carefully, got slammed after 6 pm or so. It was ranking and growing very well until now.

Youtube is at #1, #11, #21 - for all our keywords.

I don't know what's the point of trying any more.
