Regarding Google's recent algorithm change...
Since Google's PANDA update, will you purse the same backlinking strategy as before? Or will you adapt? What changes do you plan on employing?
I don't think backlinking all over the place is as valuable anymore. Personally, I'm very happy about that - it seemed like people were using all sorts of sketchy strategies to build huge numbers of backlinks to get ahead. . . .and that that was more valuable than actually creating a good article.
I'm all for creating interesting content - I hate the idea that someone can just spend all day long back linking crappy content and be ranked higher in searches than me for that.
I never really spent too much time backlinking through those terrible directories. I spent more time creating original content, and I'll continue to do so. For those who spent all that time backlinking through directories must regret the endless amount of time they have spent or amount of money, depending whether they did it manually or paid for a software to enter it for them.
Unfortunately there's no way in which Google should be allowed to punish those directory backlinkers except for just not counting those links. Because, if they did actually penalize people for bad backlinking practices, I'm about to go submit my competitors' websites to every terrible Directory there is, it'd help out my company for sure.

I keep up with Google news fairly regularly to see what's coming down the pipe. I still feel vague self-righteousness over raising the pre-Panda alarm, only to be scoffed at for suggesting that Google might start...

Anybody else dipping in traffic as of yesterday Oct 14? Apparently, Google made another algorithm change, and my traffic has taken a bit of a plunge because of it. Anyone else experiencing similar results?
