    Anyone else feeling panda #2?

    This is one of my 85% whitehat authority sites.

    Went from nearly 1k/day to 4-500/day adsense earnings in a very short amount of time. The funny thing is my blackhat sites are all holding up strong and actually seeing big bursts of traffic. Anyone else feeling panda 2?

    Panda #2 is reffering to the panda update version 2. I was wondering if its been rolled out in their local datacenters yet or if its localized in my area for now. Its hit some of my white hat sites pretty hard.

    I'm feeling like a Po (before he became a Kungfu master). I'm only making $200/day from Adsense and lo behold, someone is clocking 1K a day!!

    Panda #1 wiped out most of my Amazon sites but they're getting back (slowly) into #1-#3 position while some remain in P2....

    Panda #2 - No significant change yet!

    Just goes to show what a mess this update was when your blackhat sites are holding up and the whitehat gets screwed. I'm about 60% down traffic and revenue. I've read a lot of businesses have had to lay people off because of it.

    I lost 2/3 my income from panda 1. Might have to get (try to get) a real job if panda 2 does too much more to my sites. Has Google made some kind of announcement of this yet? I wasn't aware there was another update coming for this.

    These are daily numbers and the panda hit us on the 14-15th. Alot of the longtails dropped of the serps and the main keyword dropped off the first page. Main monetization is adsense and some amazon affiliate links. Site was actually earning over $2500 per day but is jointly owned and my share was 40%. Income plumeted and is only getting worse. I actually just purchased $370/month more worth of high pr links to see if I can savage it.

    Panda 2 is basically Google Kung Fu secret move #2. Highly secret move supposedly to take out the big bad black hatters but deeply embedded inside their algorithms are their attempts to further their own commercial interests. This of course they continue to deny.
