    google weirdness

    Anyone noticing any weird google stats today?
    Like, your site dropping from listings on certain keywords you used to score well with, then coming back.
    Or just an overall real low day of Google referrals?

    Google made some algorithm changes, which they started to apply last night...

    Yah, I'm reading the huge thread over at WebmasterWorld now.
    Just like their update back in July, which eventually was fine.
    I'm not worried, yet.
    Traffic over all my sites is down almost 50%, which happened last time also. There's also a lot of absolute garbage that comes up on search search phrases, undebatable garbage.

    Does this mean there could be an update soon?
    Don't you just love free internet games ?

    That's what is going on, a Google update.
    Problem is that it appears they're changing their algorithm, and using old data. However, this has happened before, and they will bring the new data in slowly over 3 or 4 days.

    So, I won't post here again until the update is done.
    The last time something this weird happened as in July.

    This annoys me. I lose major money when traffic drops like this.

    I was wondering when I was reading this and also all the "decreased adsense earnings" stuff what it must be like to be in your situation where you depend on it all so much for your income. You must live in constant fear. I think I would!

    How much damage would it cause you if google was down (for whatever reason) for a month?

    I haven't noticed any difference actually...

    I've noticed a slight drop in visitors, but not from Google I think, more general drop... At least I think so... *goes to double-check*

    I've dropped from the first page of my target keyword to the second page- like a drop of 7 or 8 or something. My traffic is a lot lower, even taking in account that it's a weekend (weekend traffic is lower for my site).

    Hopefully they'll fiddle around with it more.
    I run good-tutorials.com.

    It's how I roll.

    Well, I'm certain we will see more changes as far as the SERPs are concerned. The results seem terrible at the moment.
