It must be a quarterly update ,G has fixed canonical problems with some sites ,other sites that have been hit at 22/11 are back ,some sites have been hit.If you remember a week or 2 was a BL update and partly a PR update ,as usual those BL PR updates result a new reindexing or an "update".
As about my site ,has been canonicalised :ie site:www.mysite.com the index comes first.As a result I have recover ,that does not means that I have worked hard the last 3 months ,reading the very usefull posts here and at Matt Cutts blog ,paching and redisighning my site.I am 90% back and in some cases higher then before.
It takes hard work to find bugs not in Google but in our sites.Funny though some people never learned from penalties ,some guys got hit by Jagger wipeout extreme spam they launch the same sites that was washed out from the index with other domains!
Matt Cutts needs some feedback.
Finaly I believe a unique site made for the long term can survive.Wishes for a Happy new year for the world.
