don't you think that if this was being taken into account then they would want to release that information publicly
As trakkerguy indicates, G* is notoriously tip lipped about indicators that may give a clue to the SEO crowd. Still, I'm perplexed -- and I think others here are as well -- about the Cone of Silence that everyone out there seems to be under right now. Either they have nothing to say because they think it's all going along splendidly (there's a leap of faith for you!); or they have nothing to say because everyone is scrambling to diagnose and fix the problem. Neither scenario is encouraging, but of the two, I'd hope they are in serious repair mode, and I do wish that MC or someone would say something (ANYTHING) to help put it in perspective.
