Didn't see a topic about this, buuuuut... http://news.submitinme.com/newsdetails-267.aspx I saw a change in my search engine traffic. I am still not recovered in my core keywords (so have been slapped there) BUT overall my search engine traffic has increased by 15-20% from last week, which is just a little bit less than traffic I lost overall, and this is not including the weekend. If my weekend is substantially better than my last weekend, well... even better. Things that have helped me - I went through and deleted ALL of my spammy blog posts on my affected site; about 50-60 of them. - I added 15 new high quality, original blog posts that were between 600-1000 words each. - I pushed this website through social media channels. It has a big facebook page, and I promoted different pages of the site on the facebook page.
