I have found that this most recent update was my last straw with Google. Forget about SEO and my sites, I find that Google is no longer an adequate Search Engine for my search uses. I consider myself a moderate search user (I tend to use some quoted strings in my search), and the results returned, no longer have relevance, in 75 % of my searches. Moreover, the results returned to most of my queries all seem to be "recently" added pages (within the last month or 2). I think Google favors newer pages these days, and is tending to "ignore" older, more well-established authority pages, in my topics of interest. They have really blown this, IMO, and I now use Yahoo, Bing, and Ask, as my primary search engine sources. Remember guys, the Roman Empire didn't last forever, and neither will Google. A very clear case, of over-engineering.
