A couple weeks ago I ran a poll asking Did You Recover From Panda? With over 500 responses now in, I wanted to share the results.
In short, 85% of those who were allegedly hit by the Panda update has seen zero improvement since they have been hit. 5% of those who were allegedly hit said they had a total recovery. 9% of those who were allegedly hit said they had a partial recovery.
Like I said before, I really think no one has recovered fully from this Google update - not yet at least.
Here is the full chart, also adding in those who responded that it was not applicable to them. I will be sharing the full results at a long presentation I am giving in Spain next week at ISDI, if you are in the area, please do come.
For more on where I'll be speaking about Panda and other search related topics while I am in Spain, please see the RustyBrick blog.
