|921:|| Instant Panda Recovery Experiment|
It took a little over 24 hours for Google to start indexing the pages on the new site so I'm not sure if Monday results represent a full day.

The average Google traffic for the six pages Monday was around 250 visitors each.

"I compared pages on my site with very high exit rates to those with very low exit rates and immediately it struck me how much better the pages with low exit rates were.

The site was a high earning site and I was ready to hang the boots up and move on.[br][br]After the initial shock and numb feeling that lasted around three days, I decided that it was time to look at what to do and where to go. Looking at my stats traffic was down from a high of 18,000 to numbers that I had seen years ago, 800+. Not a single Google referal a few Yahoo and the rest of them Bing.
