I'm smaller than a Mom & Pop website ~ I'm only Pop ~ and when this happened to me last spring, it took one month to the day before I started to see things gradually return to normal.
Just recently, on Jan 14/15 that same site took another hit, so I've got my fingers crossed that around Feb 15 I'll see a recovery. Candidly, I find the Google mindset exhausting, and I'm tired of building my online life around them. It's like dealing with a bipolar acquaintance ~ you never know what will set them off.
