We lost quick a number of positions across most keywords thanks to Penguin this time, as I know did a lot of you guys. I was wondering if anyone had lost with 2.1 but subsequently seen a few improvements since then?

We've seen a modest increase of one or two places for some affected keywords - not much, admittedly, and could even be down to natural shufflings.

Has anyone else that's been hit seen any increases?

@carlos the jackal - with keyword metrics gone with Google, how are you reaching this conclusion?

@Whitey - purely from searching for those terms using a clean browser.

How's your traffic? It's hard to measure keywords these days as a reliable metric.

Traffic is still a lot lower than pre-penguin. These post penguin fluctuations aren't making much of a difference, traffic wise.
