My long established site had great google oraganic traffic increases from 10/13-10/25. Now, traffic is way down.

We were hit by the original Panda but this is the worst its ever been.

Anyone else have something like this happen?

I had a major September smack on a 7+ year old site reversed on or about Oct 14th.

Google is unstable, don't make the same mistake and start changing too much at once.

My site has been pretty stable with G over the last 2 months, if not slightly higher. I am getting more traffic though, but from other sources. Site was also hit by original (first) Panda.

Responding to my initial post: I found tons of crawl errors due to improper url rewriting. This has been fixed now. Any way to expedite crawl from google?

Thanks

@ffctas

submit your site map in Webmaster Tools. This will let Google know you have "new" content to check out. No guarantees, but a good way of spotlighting your site.
