I have noticed increased organic traffic in all 6 websites I look after actively. I've taken screenshots of the Google Analtyics / Traffic Sources / Search Engines / Organic / Google report, for the period February 1 2011 to March 29 2011, with "compare to past" ticked, and they all show improvements, take a look http://www.funk.co.nz/blog/seo/google-farmer-update
My improvements in visit numbers are: +33%, +58%, +31%, +13%, +43% and +49%. These are really quite large increases in organic traffic, so I'm pretty happy with how it went!
This is another excellent example of the fact that "Google is Evil." My blogs are suffering too because of their unfair algorithm tweaks. Thanks Google for making us waste our time and effort producing original but low ranking contents!
It has really become a lot complicated for people to understand as what criteria is being used by Google to judge the site content. But it is true that because of all this many other sites are getting un-noticed.
Heard that Cult of Mac came back in the search results after Google intervened. How about other innocent sites like www.outsource2india.com, who has always focused on useul and original content.
Is there some hope for the smaller sites?!!
Google panda has effected many sites even those who did not had spammy links and that's why Google have said to inform them about those sites in addition to that a successful marketer knows that risk should be spread meanings that other popular search engines should also be utilized and rely less on Google because of these changes taking places
my sites have dropped on my best keywords like best flash games form first page to 3rd page and second. i am currently going through my site and deleting all unnecessary OBLs from my site, really hope this makes a difference and gets me back to the top
I think Google made big mistake by confusing with website content and product description. As a result e commerce website were badly hit by Farmer Update. Because those product description get caught in Farmer.
