Today is the first day since April 11 with pre-Panda earnings.

Things haven't returned to "normal" in the sense traffic is the same. A few channels that gained since Panda have offset those that dived.

Actually, I expect this is a new normal.

What sort of traffic % did you lose?

At first, about 60%.

I understand Panda hit the UK on 11 April - I got a definite increase in traffic that day but it's evened out. However, my adsense earnings are definitely up - mainly through a higher cpc rate.
Pre Panda it was just below 30p, post Panda it's increased by over 15%.
This is across a range of around 50 sites in different niches.
Anyone else getting a higher cpc?

As rankings improve, either from my post-panda efforts or just dumb luck, I'm seeing a 30% increase in avg eCPM.

dibbern2, would you like to share what your "post-panda efforts" are? Glad to hear your situation is improving.

step 1: locate and remove any duplicate content. (Not little stuff like nav bars or footers.)

dibbern, you are not hit by Panda. Google said so, it's a different thing.

Panda is stuck no matter what you do until Google decides to re-calculate. [webmasterworld.com...]
