I joined the first WSO. So far I am
extremely impressed with the service. Although early, Sandy and his staff have me on the right path to increased traffic and profits.

My best site was a cluttered mess. They have redesigned the site and it looks fantastic. The design is so much cleaner. Not only does it look better, navigation of it is so smooth.

Is eBay A Big Loser In Google’s Panda 4.0 Update? — Winners & Losers Data

Yesterday, Google began rolling out their Panda 4.0 update designed to punch low-quality content. That’s generated both “winners” who have moved up in rankings as “losers” have dropped down — and eBay might be one of the big losers.

Searchmetrics gave us their initial winners and loser charts, based on rankings they continually monitor. These show that one of the biggest losers was eBay. According to the data, eBay lost a tremendous amount of traffic from Google, much of it from the ebay.com/bhp/ area of its site.

Another huge loser was Ask.com, yes, the search engine, that lost a tremendous amount of traffic in their Questions section at ask.com/question/.
The Losers: Ask.com, eBay, Biography.com & Google-Backed RetailMeNot

Among the top losers include Ask.com, ebay.com, biography.com and retailmenot.com. I should note, retailmenot.com is venture backed by Google’s venture arm. Here is the top list of losers from the Searchmetrics initial analysis:

Only Losers Really Know If They Lost

As we said with the Panda 3.5 Winners & Losers report, lists like this aren’t perfect. The sites above may have had gains and drops for other reasons; less visibility this week because last week they were visible for different news stories, for example.

It’s also worth remembering that this is a sample of search terms. The only way to really know if any update has hurt or helped you is to look at your search-driven traffic from Google, rather than particular rankings or lists like this, which have become popular after Google updates. If you’ve seen a significant increase, you’ve probably been rewarded by it. A big decrease? Then you were probably hit.

Postscript: Recode.net reports a source says eBay.com was not impacted by Panda 4.0 but by a manual action, resulting in a drop in their traffic. That is indeed possible, that eBay was hit with a manual action on the same day Panda 4.0 was released. Either way, eBay does seem to have dropped, but what was the cause is the question.
