As of yesterday in WMT my pages crawled have DOUBLED, my kilobytes downloaded per day have shot up from around 50,000 to 585,000 but the time spent downloading a page has stayed the same. This is probably due to the spam algorithm change going live yesterday. I'm really hoping to see an increase in rankings now.
A bit of history of my issues.
About a week ago my site disappeared from results overnight for top keywords. After about 3 days they returned 6 pages back and now they continue to show and disappear in results (still 5-6 pages back).
I've also noticed more international traffic (I'm based in Australia and run a .com.au ecommerce site).
It's almost like Google is still incorrectly seeing my site as a parked domain :\
