Hello, so, I am 90% sure that we were hit by Panda in April, but I would like to be 100% sure and basically get any input from other SEOs before moving forward.  Below is our traffic timeline from Analytics showing the sharp drop that occurred on exactly April 20th, BEFORE Penguin.  

 

So, um, that's for sure Panda 3.5, no?

 

Any and all advice is GREATLY appreciated.

Probably, but seeing just your organic google traffic would make it more definitive.

What happened that one day right before with no google traffic?

There was ecommerce tracking code added, which messed up the Analytics

It's possible then that there's still a tracking problem rather than a panda one. Are sales also way down?

Unfortunately, it's not a tracking problem. We went from 5,900 keywords to 5,300 keywords a week.  Doesn't sound like a big hit, but some of our big keywords got pushed down a few spots too and going down to #10 from #2 was devastating

Then I'd say definitely Panda related. See my SEO Killers article to see if you're "guilty" of anything there.

I believe it's thin content.  Here is a page on the site where a user hasn't added enough info - [removed] - so this pg is deemed low-quality
 
Would love if you could have just a quick look around the site.  I'd very much like to hear any suggestions you have

The document at that URL is what it is, you can't make people have more content than needed simply because you think it is a "problem".

And is that one of the URLs that lost traffic?

Yes, pretty much all sections of the site lost organic traffic - user profile pages, user profile content pages (for individual tracks, blogs, etc), articles/interview pages, music download pages.

 

Sorry for posting a link!  :dntknw:
