I don't know exactly what this October surprise consists of, but it seems like Google is going haywire to me. Terms that I have ranked on consistently for years have been swapped for crappy one word terms and less relevant searches. I have never seen such a dramatic swing from high to low and also a huge change in which terms I am ranking for. It took me until mid-September for my traffic to recover from May's blitz and now this! This is just Google trying to squeeze every small business they can for new revenue...period!
