    Buying sites affected by Panda update

    Was wondering if others are finding potential sites to buy that show trending numbers that were affected by the Panda update last fall. And out of those, have site owners been able to show a trend of recovering or are they just trying to bale?

    Thanks,
    Dan

    my panda affected sites are only getting worse and keep losing traffic, despite efforts to remove duplicate content and fix it up. So I'd say be extra careful

    ditto - thankfully we only had one site hit - but it continues to dwindle downwards in terms of traffic - we are keeping it limping along just as a testing ground now. no real revenue to speak of.

    I've got two sites that were hit. One of them (thin adsense site) I could never get back and the other (content / ecommerce) managed a full recovery after about three months.

    It's not that common to see sites listed publicly with more than 6 months analytics uploaded, so you probably wouldn't see the majority have been pandered until you dig deeper.

    What did you or the site owner do to make the full recovery?
