I've just noticed a company I work for, has surprisingly been hit by this update. They have an exact match domain name, for a huge, single keyword term.
They are the authority in the niche and rightfully so. They appear in large publications, books, news etc. They're a non-profit .org and change lives every day with their content and community.
The content is well researched and beautifully written. I'm really disappointed.
Fortunately, only the exact match term has been hit by the looks of it. The particular keyword has lost about 50% traffic since the 28th September. It's not the end of the world, but it's not the point.
Yet another update that had a lot of promise and yet once again hurts perfectly legitimate websites.
Google engineers are really letting us down lately.
