Search Engine Land has confirmed that Google Panda 2.5 update arrived on Wednesday, September 28
It appears that my site was panda-ized. The homepage was copied onto a doctor's office website that is under construction. I'm assuming that it was a shady web developer that stole the content. So much for a doctor being a better authority than an informational website.

Google is too important for traffic not to notice.

I'm curious what kind of SEO people did for their websites. If we could describe that here then me can see what effect the Panda update had. For example if people are still using backlink energizer or drip feed blast for their main url instead of just tier 4 or tier 5, we know that that won't work anymore. If someone says I did a lot of article marketing and it didn't effect them then we know what we should do. I didn't notice any change for example. I only build hq backlinks lke article and propertie websites.

My site was panda-ized due to stolen content from a doctor's office website. I guessing that the doctor's website had more authority than may informational site. But now the site is buried 400+.

Fill a DMCA, that should be enough to ask for reconsideration afterwards.

I called the Doctor's office this morning. The article came down real quick Just submitted a removal request of the page from webmaster tools.

Google Panda 2.5 update has been confirmed on Wednesday, September 28. But yeah, the changes may not be due to Panda. Something strange was going on since Sept. 18th ...
