    Half my sites have seen improvement since Panda 3.3 and most of the rest have stayed the same, and a couple have lost rankings.

    Other than a diversified link profile and anchor text, nothing special in the backlinking department. My sites that did fall weren't using PBNs.

    I think Panda 3.3 was just as much, if not more, about on-page indicators. And my bounce rates are pretty good. But we all love to focus on offsite SEO because that's easier.

    Since we're all doom and gloom here lately, let's have people with good news share...

    Actually, over 90% of my sites have improved in raking, many of them advancing into the first page of Google. The ones that had the biggest improvements were the sites that I kept tweaking and improving in terms of on-page SEO. Sometimes changing something as little as parameters on a tick-box on one of the SEO plugins I use on most MNS, made a huge difference in terms of position.

    Since June, last year, I took a rather granted, personal bet based on gut and knowledge, in the way I thought Google was going to change the value that they give to a site on their algorithms in their future updates and started to change and improve every-one of my pages, site by site, to be consequent with what I thought/imagined Google would do, it was an "all in" kind of bet. So far, I nailed it.

    Looking forward to read other experiences.

    Definitely on-page is more important now. It's funny because I offer free downloads in one my sites, but there aren't actually any free downloads there. I just make users fill out 5 pages of shit so that I can make money, so as you can imagine it's a crappy site, but the bounce rate is so low because people really want what I "share". I'm in position #3 without any SEO whatsoever.

    All my sites have either stayed the same, or moved up. Haven't seen any negative movement. :)

    I've actually lost ranking for some keywords, but longtail traffic is way up so total traffic is unaffected.

    You got one aged domain redirected to your site and that solved the issue?

    All up. We work after the device that content is king and good quality links is queen.

    Stick to that and you canĀ“t go wrong :)

    No I redirected the site to a new domain. I didn't redirect becaue I got the message I had some other reasons but the message made me do it sooner.

    Nothing bad here. To be honest, getting only positive results.

    I've got one keyword at the moment which looks like it will reduce but hopefully it don't.
