Few hours ago, G* has finally started restoring doomed authority sites, which I would call a data restore that was missing since mayday. I believe also it is a major algo re-tweak, MC et Al must have realized the algo was too in-perfect. It may also as I always said here that the caffeine infrastructure, though they say it was completed, the aggressive re-indexing was still going on and is still going on which means moving missing data is still going on.
The mysterious de-ranking of major authority, old and respected sites might have finally got their engineers to reconsider a major re-tweak which I think is still being propagated worldwide and may take few days or weeks to restore all deserving sites.
Here we go, you only get good news here, well, I got mayday right, but it hit many of our sites badly, so it was not good news BUT I said it all along and I stuck to my guns and had faith in what I said before. OK, no all sites may return all at once, but I believe most will within weeks.
