@snickles121 � Some local, PR, yellow page listing, BBB, and new external links are not going to fix your problem. This is not the recipe for a Panda fix. This stuff is foundation tactics.
When you see brand sites being given a boost you are observing a correlation NOT a cause and effectIn the past I have received offers up to $1000 per month for a link on my site from SEO companies representing these Brands, are we in a situation of the brand with the deepest pockets win.

Totally agree. When you see brand sites being given a boost you are observing a correlation NOT a cause and effect. Find out what other things brand sites do or are, other than "brand", that Panda likes and do those things and your site will do well.
But if I knew what you say you know, I would maybe give hint to a few people here and then head to the largest web consulting firms and tell them how to beat Panda. It's a multimillion idea, and people would gladly pay you. Don't feel bad, capitalize on it, you'll still find some time to try to teach us here. Everyone has ideas, but very few knew it exactly.
I would maybe give hint to a few people here..why ? ..because you think I should ..if I or anyone else ( and I'm by no means the only one here who has seen how this works ..the others either don't post much..or have ceased posting altogether on the subject..due to the hostility they/we get from those who haven't seen it ..or can't apply it to their sites ) has competitive advantage because of something we have realised about Panda..why would we give it to you..or make it public..?

know it exactly..but my understanding of it has been accurate since feb 2011..and I saw it being tested in a small way in some areas as far back as Oct 2010..hence my comment months ago here about "preview" being important to user perception and interaction...and particularly "preview" data and human impressions of sites ..being used in Panda.
Please stop perpetuating this myth, they are smart no doubt, but Microsoft research wipes the floor with them, and with many others. [academic.research.microsoft.com...] Unless you have an objective rank that shows that Googlers are smarter than other engineers at MSFT, Apple, Oracle or IBM for example. Try the citations and see. You can also filter by last 5 years, last 10 years and see. Granted MSFT and IBM work on many fields but it's not even close.

? ..what myth ..I never compared "smarts" at Google and MS or IBM..you did ..you attribute your straw man argument to me ..and then knock it down and try to say that I'm wrong..
read my post again..
Nowhere in it do I make a comparison between Google's engineers/programmers and those at MS or IBM..so how can I be attempting to perpetuate a myth..
And Google put a lot of store in "smarts"..remember when they hired people by putting mathematical puzzles on bill boards..you got it right you might get hired ..they didn't concern themselves with how many wrecks they may have caused because people were distracted..because the "smart ones" could figure it out instantly and keep driving safely, nor did they worry about if the boards were standing on pylons over the top of some homeless person's cardboard box home..
They wanted "smart"..that is what counts to Google..( and "fast thinkers".. because they apparently think that Larry perceives things like pages loading unusually fast ..he doesn't..two hundred milliseconds is nothing special..unless the rest are "stoners" )..thousands of sites might wither and die due to Panda? ..

Sorry, I thought you knew what to do on a site and get it out of Panda other than generalities. Like, take a Pandalized average site, add /change stuff that a regular site-owner can do and via, out of Panda.I do :)
And we know that Larry is very good at counting...
From your previous post:
theythink he is good at counting..:)

It also means that what we think of here as SEO is dead..and IMO good riddance ..no more will it be possible to apply relatively simple formulae to a crap site and get it ranked
And there is the house to fix, wood to chop, and pictures to paint, and walks to have with my family ..spent the last 25 years living in parts of the world that others dream of retiring to..my turn now to ease up and enjoy them..:)
We saw an uptick in traffic from this recent update...

Find out what you can do to emulate the signals google uses to know that amazon, nfl, espn, wikipedia, and other authorities are authorities. To hell with being right and wrong; do what works.

"I believe Amit might have been talking about Panda overall, not the 10/14 update."
