I wanted to make it clear and let them know there will be an aglo change.
And I wanted to make sure people realized it may not be the algo change that cost them their rankings, but as you point out, it could definitely be... I think maybe we've both given people something more to think about, and I try to learn more about what goes in to rankings constantly, but what I keep coming up with is as time goes by rankings are going to be tougher to achieve, so IMO depending on search engines solely for traffic could be a 'Florida Failure Plan' which is one of the biggest things I got out of those old threads that has stuck with me through the past 5+ years of this game...
Anyway, good point on the fact the algo will probably change and be the cause of at least some issues for people if they're not 'solid' in what they are doing and 'ahead of the game', and the speed of the calculations will probably also increase (Caffeine), so as the roll out is completed not only will 'discovery of issues' related to the current algo be applied faster to more sites (pages), so will any algo changes.
