I've had 4 sites completely wiped as far as Google Serps traffic goes. My main site has gone from 4,000 uniques a day a year ago to 6 uniques yesterday.
But seemingly going hand in hand with these changes is the drop in quality a lot of Google search results. Yesterday, I typed the keywords for one of my sites into Google and found multiple pages of the same sites appearing repeatedly on page one. Whilst on page 4 of the results, the same site (not mine) appeared 10 times filling the entire page.
Similarly, I saw a post on another forum this morning where someone gave the example of searching for the term [movie title] Stockists on Google.co.uk. The top two SERPS results returned were for Tripadviser! I checked it and he's correct.
As they say; what goes around comes around!
[edit reason] please - no specific searches [/edit]
