While most of the focus about Panda has been on content, Debra Mastaler makes the argument that it was about links: "So yeah, this Panda update is about the role good content plays in your search results but it’s more about the links it takes to make that content sing." Really interesting read.

Inbound links are clearly an indicator.  All indications are that you can revamp your Panda slapped site til you're blue in the face, but without new external validation, it won't be enough to rebound fully.

Alan - did you just say something nice about links? BTW in addition to quality links, we think the ads to content ratio is a pretty big factor too.
