    Just curious to here stories, how has the Panda update hurt or helped you? Because we use diverse links, we weren't really effected by it at all but that doesn't mean we haven't heard our fair share of complaints.

    Several of my sites lost traffic and revenue, and a couple jumped up to higher spots in serps and replaced lost income from the ones that dropped. :) It all balanced out , so that's cool. I've noticed that the sites with really diverse and non-spammy links are ranking high though. They have LOW backlink counts (under 200). One of them is really cool cause it now ranks #4 for a two word exact match domain with ~70,000 EXACT searches a month in the UK. :) That's just my two cents.

    I was making some good money with hubpages... not as much anymore.

    My own sites weren't affected at all.

    The most affected sites were the content farms such as article directories and web 2.0 sites, other one's were which were using duplicate content or highly spun content which had no meaning and the one's which had backlinks farm created through spam tools. I wasn't in either of the categories so I got benefited from it :p
