Google Panda

As you know, Google quietly and is slowly pushing out a Panda 4.2 refresh, one that hit home since this site saw a nice and steady recovery over the weeks after the release.

But it seems based on my own data AND based on the SEO community at large, that some of those who saw a positive impact of Panda 4.2 are now seeing that being reversed.

The ongoing WebmasterWorld thread has some saying this:

Well, for me seems that this week marked a Panda reverse. It was the first time in the last two years with good signs from Panda, but the miracle lasted only two weeks.

All the spammers from my vertical are UP and happy again!

Others are agreeing with him in the thread.

I asked other SEOs who watch the Panda space and they agreed, here is Glenn Gabe:

Here are my stats (you can click to enlarge), notice the increase the weeks after and then the sudden drop back down. This is isolating Google organic traffic only:

The vertical red line is the Panda release and the horizontal line is showing my pre-Panda 4.2 Google organic traffic and how it returned to the same level.

Anyone else noticing this? It seems like August 14th there was a reversal?
