    DId anyone notice a -5 penalty post panda 3.3? All my keywords are -5 from where they used to be. Has anyone been able to get around it?

    A while ago, I saw some chatter about a -6 penalty. Not sure about the -5 though. Was your site previously ranked at the spot you are ranking in now.

    One thing I have noticed with the Google dance is that the dance is less and less severe as your site gains more trusts..as an example,

    145 - 554 - First round of Google dance.
    47 - 145 - Second round of Google dance
    23- 47 - Third round of Google dance
    11 - 23 - Fourth round of Google dance
    6 - 11 - Fifth round of Google dance
    6th - Possibly the position you are in now is caused by the current Google dance position for your site.

    Not a penalty, just a slight fluctuation.

    Have never heard of a -5 penalty, but who knows with google...they probably have a penalty for what ever infraction we committed...

    Usually penalties are more profound than that, but i could be wrong...i wouldn't worry too much if your site is only down five spots...its time to worry when you see a -50 penalty...that's when it hurts...
