    Panda 3.2 was released recently (this last week). There have been a ton of rankings loss.

    Maybe.

    I notice even some big famous site effected too. For example two sites with more than 2 million index now only arrount 100 thousand left.
    And one of my small site with several hundred index now only homepage index.

    I believe this is a big change and maybe finally affect ranking,Hope to see solution here.

    I've noticed dozens of my keywords across various sites I own indexing and de-indexing... Panda 3.2 has made rankings go crazy. Things will prob. calm down in a week or so.

    Noticed that too, but if you click on page 2 of the results it usually shows a larger number. One of my sites shows 9,000 results on page 1 and 190,000 on page 2.

    Yes, definitely you are right.

    The stupid Panda left TOS for most sites but delete their important content.

    But this is not the same story for other sites. Most sites same results on page 2.

    And the deindexing is still going on.

    My rankings actually improved greatly last week and have been very stable since then, but this could be due to a number of things and have nothing to do with the Panda.

    One of my sites ranking actually improved considerably, and meanwhile my adwords account got banned for promoting that exact site??

    Go figure.

    So it seems many sites benefit from the Panda 3.2 this time?

    I found the sudden change yestady, but some said ranking improved last week, so they are related?

    Most of my sites have skyrockted, is this the update that applies to the content above the fold? I have all my content on the majority of my sites in plain view easy to access content above-the-fold.

    Liking the update! :)

    More and more sites index down,including some big sites. The Panda is still busy deindexing them now.

    I've taken some big hits from sites that were based upon pure whitehat techniques and from sites that employed only Blackhat tactics. Consequently, from here on out I'm permanently banning ALL whitehat SEO; there will be NONE of that!!!

    The whitehat sites were humming along for years, generating around $1400 p/m. Now they are gasping for air at $500 to $600 p/m. There is absolutely no rhyme or reason to what is taking place... with one exception.

    g00gal seems to be intent in flexing it's muscles with the goal of letting those in SEO know who is in control. They seem to be taking actions with the sole purpose of leaving webmasters and those in SEO flat out guessing at how they rank sites.

    I don't know how you measure/test/confirm and track what's happening SEO wise but here's one method that I use. I have a list of about 220 sites from various markets and niches; none of which are mine. I monitor these sites to help me grasp and comprehend any g00gal algo changes.

    What am I looking at and looking for? Site design, on page SEO, off page SEO, rankings, PR, age, social media, indexing rate, caliber of content, ratio of advertisements to content, canonical structure and a few other variables.

    By monitoring such a broad based spectrum of sites, I can hopefully pinpoint the type of message g00gal is sending. I say hopefully because as I've previously stated, there seems to be no rhyme or reason behind some of the severely adverse actions g00gal is taking.

    Over the past week, I've looked at and checked out no less than one hundred and seventy-five sites. About 17% were completely and totally DE-INDEXED. For example, take a look at:

    Code:
    Videoforward [COLOR=Lime]dot [/COLOR]com
    This is one of the sites I've been tracking since May of 2009 and at one point I recall it having a PR of at least 4. If I'm not mistaken, I believe it achieved a PR5 but don't quote me on that. Keep in mind, this is only one site in one niche.

    However, by the time I've added up all of the sites that were de-indexed along with the ones that lost rankings and measured them against the sites that improved or remained as they were, nothing is adding up or panning out. In other words, there are no clear cut patterns. Some sites that were de-indexed and lost rankings looked like masterpieces - as in they had their act together from top to bottom SEO wise. Yet, they still lost out in these last set of g00gal changes. I've ran many of these sites through IBP, MS and SEOSpyglass, etc., and again nothing is adding up and nothing is sticking out like a sore thumb.

    At this point, if you are paying attention g00gal and the SERPs and whats happening, it appears the best thing to do is to set up a solid and continuous DF system for both on page and off page and weather this storm. JMHO.
