Google Panda Update/Algorithm Change - 2 months on

So a couple of months ago Google implemented their algorithm change for the search results which resulted in a whole bunch of sites being penalised for being 'content farms'. Two of the sites that I use for my articles were penalised - ezine articles and Hubpages and indeed traffic has fallen a bit. I have mostly been using Hubpages recently and I know they are trying to do a lot to get their reputation back up by implementing some new rules to ensure more quality writing.

Perhaps there will be another algorithm change in the future so it is not worth giving up just because things take a bit of a turn for the worse. Traffic is always hard to come by but by doing lots of SEO, backlinking etc it is possible to get good SERPS rankings still.
