Has anyone suffered a hit in traffic since the last google update ? I seen alot of threads regarding AWS sites getting close to zero traffic.

I had a pure AWS site that never did well. Google has been fighting against duplicate AWS sites for a while, well before this update. Still, it seems they really started trying to weed them out now.

Most of my hybrid sites are still doing well. One of them dropped from about 700 uniques a day to around 550, but it bounces back often, so I don't think this has anything to do with the latest update. I'm still making 2-3 sales per day from 500-700 uniques, which I'm pretty happy with.

I recently started sending 4x more AWS traffic to Google daily. Not sure why, guess a new AWS site was picked up.

I think it depends on PR. The duplicate sites with lower PR will be phrased out...

My AWS sites are actually performing better than they ever were before. I want to focus on the kitchen sites and add aditional content, or create a supporting content site for them.

My AWS site has been getting more traffic recently. I think Google has indexed around 50,000 pages in the last four weeks, though only 8,000 or so currently show up in the index.
