The inquiry against Google needs to be intensified, Google's destroying lives with such drastic changes. Yes, I saw another iteration too, or something. I'm finding eBay is now tops for many keywords that wikipedia was before... and now wikipedia is nowhere to be seen on them.
As I stated in another thread - google is full of crap. Their guide to building a better site (to help pandalized sites) is just something to make people feel that they have some 'control' over the Pandalty - but you don't and you can't recover. Ever. Once you are hit, you are done.
That about sums it up, you can put to rest the idea that you have control here. It's like a schoolyard lineup to pick teams right now, popularity being more important than talent.
