Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
... noticing that my pandalized site which was having a hard time ranking on anything... is now starting to rank for NEWLY CREATED pages... albeit few get to the top of the first page... many seem to be at the top of the 2nd page in google serps for selected medium competitive key terms.
Not sure when this change started happening but it's recent. This site is definitely NOT OUT of Panda... but, nonetheless it's something... [webmasterworld.com...]
Are we seeing the 1st stage of a rolling update, or dynamic components associated with Panda?
...a third essential leg of the ranking algorithm (relevance+connectedness+quality)...
What i sense is that each iteration to date, enables a range of thresholds, related to new content additions , and releasable keywords.
that Google is isolating some factors within "quality" and testing them separately

toward query volume as the selector for Panda evaluations.
if panda was run as they claimed why would there be only like 11.8% affected queries ?!?! and that was the main introductory update. The entire web should have been shuffled upside down but no
I have another gut feeling as the main target for panda has been an index of already flagged websites and not the entire web as general. Its just a theory but it might make a sense.
