Robert... thanks for the reply...
I am still in there when doing simple queries like "keyword domain.com" ... I'm just no where to be found for "keyword" as I was always top 10.
The cache date in google for the pages is within the last few days... so it's still updating.
Googlebot is going nuts on my site as usual (albeit, it took a couple days of vacation as others have reported)
Webmaster tools is stuck on June 24th for both "site performance" and "crawl errors".
Analytics shows a massive drop-off a day after the site code was refreshed... much like you would see from a penalty... however, this was a bit gradual over 24 hours as opposed to instant. Probably as googlebot discovered my pages.
I keep thinking I'll just hold out and wait... I'm certainly not reverting back to garbage code... I've reduced my page size for 75% and the site is faster than any of my competitors... much faster. It uses perfect strict standards... results in few validation errors and is pure CSS... the best you can get in my opinion!
No, nothing crazy like nofollow on the pages.
