    a) How did Panda affect SEO and what changes should webmasters make to avoid being caught in the Panda trap?

    Panda affects only big guns. Not lower or medium level webmasters.

    Panda's supposed to penalize sites with unoriginal content. In theory at least...

    OP, Rule of thumb - focus on unique quality content and make everything look as natural as possible.

    Offpage:

    Avoid using only your KW phrase as anchor. Most of your anchors should be in the format http://www.yoursite.com. Also, make sure to misspell some anchors.


    Onpage:

    1. 2000-3000 words on landing page

    2. When visitors arrive, more than 50 % of the content which they see should be text. Put it as high on the page as you can without making it look weird, i.e use a smaller header.

    3. No more than 1-1.5 % kw density

    4. Always cloak affiliate links

    5. Make sure to include Privacy Policy, DMCA Policy, Anti-Spam Policy, Terms of Use, Earnings Disclosure, Affiliate Agreement och About Us and Contact Us pages.

    6. Update your site with new content regurarly

    7. Link to at least a couple of autoritity sites

    Other than that.. everything is just as normal, i.e. using h1,h2,h3, using your kw´s as alt text in images etc etc.

    This is at least based on my experience and trial and error.

    To your success,

    I'm really curious about the whole dup thing. There are sites that have a lot of dup content on purpose, such as Rottentomatoes and metacritic. Doesn't look like Panda's affected them much. Maybe it's the smaller and mid-level webmasters that get hit the hardest?

    Excellent said.

    But personally I would mention that I guess exact medicine to neutralize the effect of panda is still unknown to maximum person as Big G is always believe not to reveal the actual secrets.

    Still adding more to the above points I will like to say that before things gets normal try using minimum bots to your site as it might cause negative effect and your site might get sandboxed.
    So be cautions while chalking out the SEO plans. :)

    Panda mostly affect the site with crap or duplicate content =Content farms.

    you can get out of panda, with web 2.0 backlink and HIGH PR backlinks.

    and posting unique content.

    To make your link building more natural looking. If real people were to be linking to your site chances are some of them would mispell the keyword the odd time.
