@petehall If anything pete I am seeing the exact opposite. I wouldn't read too much into 1 site disappearing, after all it is happening to good legitimate sites as well.
With one of my most competitive search phrases a site that is less than 3 months old with zero backlinks and 24 pages is now in the #2 spot.
IMHO the number 1 spot, which has remained constant since the update, is only loosely related to the keyword phrase - by page title (which is somewhat misleading).
It could be argued that it is related and somewhat relevant but it definitely doesn't answer the search query.
This particular site has very low backlinks (a few hundred) but a ton of internal links (about 5,000) which use the exact keyword phrase as anchor text.
I have also noticed exact match internal linking anchor text with many sites that are coming and going.
I am also seeing very isolated results in my searches with some looking almost unchanged from before the update while others are a complete mess.
Is anyone seeing a mixture of good results for terms and bad results for others...even in their personal searches?
