Panda 2.3 Confirmed Out: July 22nd

Google Panda 2.3We have been reporting discussions around a possible rolling update for Panda. Last night I received confirmation from Google at Search Engine Land that Google indeed update the Panda filter.

The update was manually pushed and is still not running as a rolling update - so I was wrong on that front.

Webmasters believe this update began on July 22nd, which goes along with Google's statement of it being pushed out "late last week."

Google said:

This update incorporates some new signals that help differentiate between higher - and lower-quality sites. As a result, some sites are ranking higher after this most recent update.

Sorry, fixed.  Not an excuse, but wrote this in the car on the way to a meeting.

Hey Barry - Thx for the heads up on this.  Not trying to be a pain but date still says June 22.. I just know a lot of people don't make it to the comments. Cheers! Additionally (and this could just be me) when I try to sign in to post here with my Facebook account I'm getting a Facebook error that states: "An error occurred with Search Engine Roundtable. Please try again later." Just a heads up.. Thanks! -Greg Habermann

My site took a large hit on July 29th.  I wonder if it had anything to do with the Panda Update recently.  I lost 2/3 of my keywords on google and also 2/3 of my search results.  Its been 3 days now and I hope my site recovers.  What can I do to increase my keywords with google?

Most of my web sites recovered completely on July 24th. The jump from the previous day was over 60%. But I am not in the US market. Also I did not make any changes to them so it must be some sort of rollback.
