    I noticed that yesterday a site of mine that got spanked by Panda 4, has now recovered 90%ish of its SERPs in one giant move.

    Did anyone else recover yesterday as well? Or notice any big changes?

    I couldn't resist to type "spanked by panda" into G Images. There really is an image for everything these days.

    How do you know your site has been smacked by pando 4.0?

    Because my site got owned on the 19/20th of May and went from making $100 a day to about $1 a day. All my SERPs went to 100+ overnight and wrong pages were ranking - classic panda from what I have seen in the past.

    The site had the same links as some other sites and only 1 gets spanked. On the day G releases a panda update - I doubt it's a coincidence.

    Don't really care anyway. My site is back on page one again. I just wanted to see if others had similar recoveries - doesn't look like it though.

    Also had one recover yesterday from Panda 4. It was an old site so when it was hit in May I changed stuff around, added a modern theme and some videos as well as new content. Must have worked :)

    I had a few big recoveries yesterday too. I cleaned up a lot of my links, lowered keyword density on page and unoptimised anchor text.

    The SERPs are in major fluctuation, have been for a while. Unless Google announces an update just get used to it. Develop a consistent plan and stick to it. Stop creating "this happened to me today" threads, they don't help anyone.
