The past few days I'm hearing more reports of recovery and near recovery from sites that put in a lot of work. So what's been the delay in processing the changes?
There seems to be some sort of testing and rolling back going on. There's an interesting thread on the Warrior Forum [warriorforum.com], which sort of backs up what's being said on the UK thread [webmasterworld.com] here, except they seem to have nailed the dates better.
One person calling themselves Lares posted the following on June 11th:
Site 1: Came back from penalty June 6. Disappeared next day. Came back today.
Site 2 and 3: Came back from penalty June 7. Disappeared today.
Site 4: Never came back
Then today (June 14th) they updated with:
Site 1: Disappeared today
Site 2 and 3: Came back today
Site 4: Still nowhere to be found
which prompted other people to report
my site bombed on the 6th of june...
came back on the 11th and got the most traffic I've ever had for 2 days...
and then bombed back out the top 500 again today
G is obviously testing different versions of their new algo, perhaps to see which one is "best" - it seems to be a real rollercoaster.
They key dates that people are mentioning are June 6th, June 7th, June 11th and June 14th
