WMT source domain count dropped... is an update round the corner?

 5:44 am on Dec 29, 2010 (gmt 0)

Today morning I saw the source domain number dropped for most of the pages in Google Webmaster for one of our domains. The drop in number is as high as 60% for some important first level pages.

No PageRank or traffic changes noticed yet however, the impression count has also dropped by around 35-40% in last two days that WMT shows with no significant changes in keyword ranks.

Anyone else noticing the same changes?

If the impression count is down, that could mean some algo change has already occurred - either that or a WMT reporting change (either a fix or a new bug). I would strongly suspect the second.

It's just a reporting change, the same thing happened with one of my test sites but the actual rankings and such remained the same and our google analytics had a huge discrepancy versus the ranking and data from google WMT

Correction: The impression count was actually down by 15-20% and NOT 35-40%

I tried finding which domains were actually dropped. However, no exact pattern found.
