Squidoo dropped further. HP stayed about the same.
Not really what I was hoping for to be honest.
I suspect, looking at traffic patterns over the last year, as Google have tried to shaft both HP AND Squidoo - they will now think it is about right.
ie. we are both dropped down the rankings.
The blue is HP, red is Squidoo. It makes no real difference - we have ended in more or less the same place. I believe the year long scale shows how Google have manipulated the search algorithm to hit both sites equally.
It's tough over in Squidland at the moment. Same as it has been here. So not a time for celebration I think - more of a shared ouch.
A worthy op.
Squidoo has never done anything mean to me, so I have no animosity towards them either.
However, I'd sure like to know if eHow got what they deserved. Unfortunately they're not Quantified. I'm also curious to find out if Yahoo's junk, 3-year-old Q&A is still showing up on page one.
How can HP and Squidoo possibly know what it is that Google expects from them, when Google are desperately clinging to a market share which they will eventually lose?
These two giants are merely reflecting Google's own fortunes. The future is uncertain, the only certainty is that reasonably skilled content writers will always be needed. But will Google?
Yes I noticed too the rubbish of yahoo questions and answers, everytime I look something up the stupid four year old answers come up. It wouldn't be so bad if the answers were correct! most of them are a mixture of guesswork, rubbish and downright stupidity!

I have kept quiet about this for a while now, but after the Panda update I saw my traffic drop a little then normalize (as expected after any Google update).However since I made the changes required by Hubpages (and I assume changes enforced upon everybody else) I have seen steadily declining...

For anyone seeing a sudden dip or rise in traffic, be aware that Panda is rampaging again:http://searchengineland.com/panda-update-rolling-204313This may be good news for some who lost traffic in the August update, and it will be bad news for others.
