@Alex - I'm surprised there isn't more feedback (outrage) on this one! Whatever happened starting last week has us in a keyword free fall. Ran two keyword reports yesterday and nothing but downward movement. In many cases #1 positions moved to #10 or worse over nite. Our new peak period is one or two visitors on the site at one time. So much for needing a dedicated server. I have done no big changes to the site this month, other than refresh a few pages.
It's pretty clear - Google wants us out. No messages in WMT whatsoever. I guess this time they mean business and I'll be soon joining the ranks of the unemployed. Guess this one should be called "Pink Slip".
