Lots of changes on Google.co.uk however. many people showing eal world examples of lost rankings and traffic across the board.
Mainly I have seen sites that are short of content getting nailed, so ecomm stores mostly. Those with unique content have done Ok .

I have noticed far more emphasis on personalised localised results in the UK of late. so that might be having a large part in the lost traffic.

So should I upgrade to Web 2.0 before or after?

I got Pandawhacked, from 11,000 uniques to 6,000 over 2 days, performed a clean up, over a few weeks traffic grew to 12,500 uniques so even better than before then fell to 7,500 one day then 6,000 the next.
After ensuring everything adheres to best practice to still get monumentally kicked back like this has destroyed any search ethics I had. Best practice and guidelines can go screw themselves as far as I'm concerned now.
I'm personally convinced Panda has updated again in the UK, I've also seen a totally unrelated site have traffic halved over 36 hours. 100% original content, copied by thousands of sites, authoritative or so I thought, been online years, loads of ethical, genuine links and it still gets screwed.
Goodbye ethics. I'm going to the dark side now.

Then again, search being the dynamic thing it is, the sites could always tank next week for completely unrelated reasons.
Maybe it's time that people just started to focus on traffic growth again.

Nope. That's not at all what Panda wants. The whole idea of Panda is to give USERS what they want. So if what you add isn't useful to users it won't be useful to Panda either.
How about adding reviews of the hotels? Now THAT would be useful.

There are some things I believe that *may* lead to a Panda downgrade but I can find exceptions to every example -- it seems to be, however, that sites rack up a lot of Panda attention by doing multiple things that contribute to the poor user experience.
I doubt anyone will ever be able to create "content for Panda" but we'll probably see some "Panda-compliant Website concepts" emerge in the next year, where the whole package will generally prove itself in ways that are hard to measure.
