I have been trying to work out what to do to get my e-commerce website back up the rankings after Google Panda. Everyone says that a site needs lots of unique content. 100 words on a product description, 100 words on product groupings. I have this. Yet on a the keywords "Hair Accessories" all the sites above me dont, so I am confused as to why they are higher.

Also, is submitting to 100 directories a week now a waste of time?

thanks

That's because this so-called "advice"

is complete garbage!

It never has been "useful", why should it start now?

Panda was never "just about content". It has always been about the quality of the site: Design, Navigation, Content.

No one really has a universally acceptable fix for Panda. Many people have recovered from Panda but their solutions vary because their Websites vary.

One of the most common factors cited in recovering from Panda is reducing duplicate content on the site -- duplicate content might be expressions repeated very often on the page, blocks of text repeated across many pages, or blocks of text or articles replicated across many Websites.

Page loading/rendering speed is another issue that many people have addressed.

Tag clouds have been removed by some Panda recovery strategies.

The list goes on. It's probably not ONE thing but SEVERAL things together that led to your Panda downgrade.
