Why has the Great Google PANDA taken most of my GOOGLE traffic away this week?
Starting earlier this week my Traffic from Google dropped by more than 50%. What's up with this?
PANDA penalizes duplicate content more than anything else. Make sure your Hubs are unique by using Copyscape. (People may have stolen your hubs and placed them on other websites.)
If you have a lot of comments on your Hubs from people outside of Hub pages - with links pointing to external websites, check to make sure that they are not copied from other sites. I had to delete some comments that copied paragraphs word for word from other websites.
Thanks Dr Rockpile, the first one I checked has been significantly plagarized by a site called Just Answer. I am presently in "on Hold" Hell.
Oh Don I am so sorry to hear that. Keep us updated.
Oh dear so then its not wise to post anything on a comment even if you are just trying to make a point. This wont be easy. Thanks for the heads up.

This might be a complete co-incidence, but I switched to the new profile a couple of days ago, and today Google is pretending it doesn't know me. Hubs that ranked on the first page for main keyword are not found...

How is it that a hub on the 'common mistakes new hubbers make' can suddenly become not featured, in spite of the fact it has had 9 views in a day, 24 views in 7 days and 35 views in the last 30 days? I only replied to...
