Over at DP I posted about the changes the other day but none really responded so I went here to see if anybody else is seeing the same as I do.
On Dec 20th I could see a lot of changes to my site(s) starting abroad (uk pages and scandinavian pages) and the visitors from Google dropped to almost nothing. I guess it is easier for google to changes smaller sets of data first and go over to pages in english agter that.
Pages went supplemental again with cache dates as of May-September all over the board. Pages I have asked them to remove came back in the index as supplemental.
Last night, for a couple of hours, I had no visitors from Google at all and checking my stats my server wasn't down since I have other sites on the server that I track. The queries people used to find my site before the 4 hour Google black-out didn't give the same result anymore and after that number of visitors dropped and the ones that do come do it with totally different queries.
MC honest? I think he is just "splitting hairs" with us. He can't tell us anything and when he does it is just to defend what they are doing. There is nothing NEW in what he says. What he SHOULD be telling us is that we ARE GOING TO DO A CHANGE THAT INVOLVES THIS and let people know what to expect. Everything he says is just "after the fact" and is of no help at all.
