@crobb305 - I agree. I don't think it had anything to do with the content change per se. It may have been a trigger, or may have been part of a subsequent wave - I am not too sure on this particular point, and, honestly, it is moot. My assumption now is, well, since it has now taken its hit, might as well fix the whole damn thing, it can't get any worse, no sense keeping the kid's gloves on now. It is site-wide too. Issues on the whole site have pulled down well-deserving pages. Again, the most revealing bit of info I have is the comparison between sites affected vs. sites unaffected, which are under my control, and I know exactly what has been done to them all. It is hard accurately researching other sites in the SERPs, as I don't know what I might find under their hood. The differences I see in my own different sites are undeniable.
