I've spent some time talking about what the Panda algorithm did to my fitness blog: it really hurt my traffic coming from Google.
I ended up investing some time trying to make sense of it all. I've keep an eye on sites like the Search Engine Roundtable, but what I was reading wasn't promising--it seemed no one was really recovering from the Panda meltdown. There was one bright side: I took the opportunity to write a guest post over at Problogger.net (see Google Panda Update: the Lessons I Learned).
I finally did notice some improvements a couple of days ago. It seemed I was getting more visits for search terms (after a month of mostly just image search traffic). It turns out there was another update on April 12th (it was officially announced on the Google Webmaster Central blog).
Here's a screenshot of my Google analytics with everything ("non-paid search engine traffic" only).
As you can see, we are not talking about massive traffic here. But my fitness blog is not (yet) an "a-list" blog, so this improvement is quite significant for me. Hopefully I'll continue to see improvements.
I previously mentioned removing all unoriginal content and re-posting it elsewhere. Did that really make a difference? I have no earthly idea. I'm just hoping the improvement in search engine traffic is a sign of things to come.
