Google's emphasis on user-friendliness with Panda has changed the way most SEO campaigns do business. Standard (spammy) link building campaigns no longer have the precedence they used to, giving way to more natural, community building SEO tactics. It'll be interesting to see how the industry changes in light of this update.

Haven't noticed a negative impact so far. I actually think in many ways businesses should benefit and appear above content scrappers.

That said I have seen so many sites with duplicate content appear towards the top of the SERPS since the updates, not to mention sites with articles which are clearly spun (as the sentences don't really make sense). The other day i saw the phrase "globe wide web" used in an article. Changing world for globe might make sense in some phrases but not that one.

I have a few sites with original content but not many pages (5-12) and I totaly got crushed. I sure hope they turn on or off some filters and make the dust settle soon. I have made some minor on page changes but wouldn't make anything to drastic all at once or Google might sandbox ya.

If you stick to the basics, good code & original content, no change of algorithm will ever hurt your web traffic. I see many of the posters have seen better results since the changes, good job!
All these SEO gimmicks will fade away and we'll be left with smarter search engines because of it.

Thank you spam

I believe our site was affected but it's hard to tell. Our keywords have plateau'd recently and it's hard to tell why. We do everything Google wants us to do as declared by the Panda update but it doesn't seem to be helping.

Whether SEO depends on Google Panda?
