Losing 5 to 10 indexed pages every few days

I'm losing a few pages from the index every few days. Pre- Caffine, the site was well indexed with good traffic. What is different in Caffine to cause this. It's a 4 year old site with good content...The only thing I can think to do is get more backlinks. Anyone else experiencing this?
Thanks Fish Texas

Caffeine is primarily a change in infrastructure, and my sense of it is that it is changing the way secondary "report" operators collect their data. So even if the number reported by the site: operator or even Webmaster Tools is changing, it's an imperfect guesstimate - the first SERP always says "about" doesn't it?

If you aren't seeing a loss of actual traffic from Google search results, then I would not be concerned. If you are, then track down what entry pages/keywords are suffering and diagnose that.

Check your crawling stats in WMT, I see huge fluctuations with crawling/indexing since the caff. stuff started.

If you see less crawling with an established site this means more URLs are placed into the supplemental index automatically and less traffic is the result.

Crawling is fine...had 3 large spikes in crawling since middle of Sept. The 3rd is still going on...
Yes, I have lost traffic, but it's hard to tell if it's end of year decline/economy, or indexing decline.
At a loss for reason.
Question: If I am losing pages due to some minor problem, will more quality links kind of offset this?

Since I'm here...another question regarding links.
Article writing: Do the search engines count as link juice published articles on the major article directories. How do they view published articles?
Thanks

It's not about spikes, it's about the consistency in crawling and indexing.

Example:

July - middle of September was consistent for my sites. As soon as the inconsistent crawling started I lost URLs due to supplementals. (analysis is based on more than 1M URLs)

The good news is as soons as they start crawling again all the URLs will be back in the index within a week.
