    Wattup ya'll.

    3 days ago I put a 301 redirect on 2 mini sites that got hit by the updates. (Original sites hovering around rank 40-50).
    2 Sites are now back to their original positions (no.2 and 3 respectively).

    Will report back on ranks later this week.. Hopefully it's not a temporary fix like some others say.

    Domain about a year old. PR1. Only 3 pages of content. They were basically mini-niche-sites.

    I bought a new domain which was an EXACT copy (same articles, everything) of the old ones, 301'd the old site to the new site. And boom, 3 days later im rank 2 again.

    Even if it is temporary, it is an nice income booster whilst you can make a brand new site to replace it.
