Gary Illyes says that last weeks update was the Core Algorithm, and did not contain Panda.

So those of you who thought that since the core algorithm update this weekend ran and was confirmed and since Panda is part of the core algorithm that some Panda sites may have seen their Panda penalt

If your website traffic rose or dropped sharply on Nov 19th and again Dec 4th and 10th it could be due to Google testing one of it's algorithms:

Remember the unconfirmed Google update from November 19th? Well, there is speculation that there are still fluctuations around that update that are continuing to roll out.Glenn Gabe is following it p

If you are using Interstitial ads on your website that cover a significant portion of the page then the mobile version of your site may have been penalized. Can't come soon enough I say -- those ads are very annoying.

https://www.seroundtable.com/google-app-install-interstitial-penalty-21131.html
Two months ago, Google warned us that app interstitials may lead to a penalty, if they take up too much of the page, covering most of the content. Well, yesterday, November 2nd, that penalty went liv

If you are having problems floating elements in your CSS try using "display:inline-block" instead. Here is a very good explanation on how to do this:

PS. I discovered that when using display:inline-block on a left menu that there was no way to make it move below the content on right for small mobile devices. So I had to revert back to floats so I could cancel them out the floats on mobile devices. I even tried moving the two around in html file.
 Anyone know how to do this with display:inline-block?

Some new advice from Google's Gary IIlyes saying don't remove content that some people find useful, if you've been hit by Panda -- increase it's quality instead.

http://www.webpronews.com/dont-do-this-if-youve-been-hit-by-googles-panda-update-2015-10/
Google’s Panda update has been around since February 2011 and continues to wreak havoc on websites when it finds content issues. Sometimes it’s not clear that the site suffering Panda’s wrath actually deserved to be algorithmically penalized. Either way, some sites have been hit really hard by it over the years, and one tactic that has sometimes been employed has ...

The following lists original goals and future changes in Google+ by Mark Traphagen. However it's soooooo long I only made it half way through and skipped to the Conclusion at the end (which was also too long and had no conclusion that I could find and had even more quesitons). Grrrrrr!  If anyone can summarize this in 2 sentences it would be highly appreciated.

Here is a very in-depth post on Panda and how to recover from it. This author thinks it was Panda that was updated this last weekend and is now included in Googles Core Algorithm so it is running in Realtime.

http://www.thesempost.com/understanding-google-panda-definitive-algo-guide-for-seos/
Note: We have many brand new quotes about Panda from Google attributed to a “Google Spokesperson.” These are all quotes given directly to the author and The SEM Post by Google. All other Google quotes are cited to their sources. Google Panda is one of Google’s ranking filters that seeks to downrank pages that are …

Sometimes site owners or web designers will put content within Javascript arrays which only expands when you click on it. This is usually done so the page doesn't look so cluttered. However, Gary Illyes says that Google will not index that content. FF to 3:33 min.

If your site lost traffic on Sept 2 and Sept 16 (or recovered traffic on the later) check out his article by Glen Gabe where he has been consulting with Google and analyzing the effects of this Unknown update.

If the mobile version of your website hides content, with ads that float above the page, then it could be classified as non-mobile friendly:

Hey folks,  I have occasionally mistakenly posted web design tips on my Google+ personal page instead of my business page (Lori's web design) so if you own a website you might want to add that page to your circles also as all future web design tips will be posted over there.
