    In my niche I have seen the sites ranked #1 & #2 fall to the second and third page. Who knows why??? My site that used to rank #1 is still on page 50. Luckily I have moved my business away from organic SEO so don't really care anymore.

    No movements as of yet, has the update already striked? Seems like it still needs to roll out

    Am I reading something wrong, the twitter link leads to an article from May 2011. This isn't current.

    The link just describes Panda, but the twitter post is from today.

    The article is old but the tweet is new. They usually link to an article to mark the context of the tweet.

    Just checked - it helped to boost up two of my website's rankings :)

    It pays to be a valuable contributor to the SERPs

    nothing bad yet. Some sites are now ranking higher than they were some days back. So everything looking good so far, my guess is that the update is still getting rolled.

    Exactly. No one should rely on strictly SEO. There's plenty of profitable methods shared on BHW. No one should put all their eggs in the Google basket.

    One site that's a bit thin on content got hit a bit. Others gained/lost nominally.

    I have positive movements for my money site but i am also expecting good results from recent backlinks. So i am not sure about the cause of this positive movement.

    I guess panda is saturated now. As we are not seeing any considerable change eventhough1.2% is a huge number as compared to their previous updates.
