    The update everyone have been talking about was neither Penguin or Panda - it was 'Payday Loan 2.0' update (http://searchengineland.com/officia...hm-2-0-launched-targets-spammy-queries-192027)I just thought that we should open other thread for this one to keep it more clear for everyone and further analysis.

    I got very mixed results myself, some sites went up and some down and I couldn't have find too much similarities. Some Sape sites still up, some spammy GSA sites still up, some spun sites still up, some affiliate sites still up - and some of those went down. Will look more into link velocity, anchors, tiers and onpage factors.

    How about you, they started rolling this 16/17 - what happened to your sites and what kind of methods you had been using?

    Just checked the first 20 results and 7 out of 20 are from spam sites, redirects, etc. Let's see if this is still the case in a week...
