    And evidently we won't know the full effect of it for months. … 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. smile Probably good that it rolled out at a slow time. Hopefully, we will reap the benefits by the holidays.

      No problem. Yes, I'm hoping the effect of it is positive.

    I seem to be doing better since last Saturday, so maybe Google likes me now.

      I've seen some improvement, kind of thinking the same thing.

    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

    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.
