And evidently we won't know the full effect of it for months. http://searchengineland.com/google-pand … ths-225850
But those previously penalized could be doing better; though others could be penalized.
Thanks, Nate, for the heads up. Sounds like a kinder, gentler Panda this time around. Probably good that it rolled out at a slow time. Hopefully, we will reap the benefits by the holidays.
I seem to be doing better since last Saturday, so maybe Google likes me now.
Er, folks? A slow, fuzzy rollout means that even more than before, we won't know whether, what, or when to change, or who or what to blame, when.
Even if we seem to be rewarded, in trying to helplessly second-guess whether we done right or wrong, and without a proper start-end timeframe at the beginning, we could be making things worse by taking action, or making things worse by not taking action.
In other words, we're gonna go wacky....
I'll probably do what I've always done - whatever seems right at the time. But it's not looking like I'll be armed with any good new data. Google is not promoting a better understanding of good pages, here.
I saw a lovely spike in traffic over the weekend but it dropped off on Monday to pre weekend levels.
I compared M,T,W of this week versus last week. This week was a teeny, tiny tad upward. So either:
A. Google still doesn't hate me.
B. Google hasn't gotten around to me yet.
Btw, Paul E. has made a post about all this. I don't know if Paul relegated it to the boondocks or a moderator did it. At any rate, it is at http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/132033
I think it is best to leave the Pandas and Penguins alone and concentrate on writing great high quality articles on things we are passionate about. If people are concerned about not making enough money on Hubpages there are countless other venues online or offline to make decent money.

I'm sorry to ask this question but I've got to ask. To make a long story short, I'm noticing that my personal blogs have experienced a near identical drop in traffic as my hubs here on HP. The drop started right around the end of September - the same time HP got witch slapped. I've looked at why...

Google on Twitter: "Panda refresh is rolling out—expect some flux over the next few days. Fewer than 0.7% of queries noticeably affected"September 18th 2012

So far, I've lost about 15% of my traffic, since Panda 3.3 began rolling out earlier this week! It's annoying as I'd only just brought some traffic back up by editing and deleting Amazon hubs after a post-Xmas slump that I've struggled to get out of! It feels like Google wants to keep...
