Google hasn't refreshed the data
I find it really annoying that Google can suddenly trash your site overnight for hitherto "acceptable" levels of SEO, and then get coy about reindexing your cleaned up pages for weeks and weeks on end. And then they seem to focus on US sites leaving dot.co.uk sites further behind the game.
A home improvements professional I know traditionally picks up the majority of her work in the spring, that being March, April and May. All that time her daily traffic has been less than she got on Christmas day (always previously the site's quietest day). Her company goes into liquidation in June. A hard-working, talented lady with a web-site packed full of inspiring and helpful information has been destroyed.
On Friday I removed a swathe of redirects left over from a site redesign in 2010. The very next day a number of them that had external links popped up in WMT Crawl Errors. Why then does it take so long for backlink and content keyword changes to be appear in WMT?
