I'm still seeing images from foreign sites. That might be okay, but I can say in the past I never saw this to this extent.
Beyond that, I'm observing that when I searching for something, I can do a firefox "find" for the term and it doesn't even exist on the page I was given in results. If the keyword I typed into Google doesn't appear on the page I'm given, ponder that situation for a moment. This was not just on one result, I clicked a few and still didn't find an instance on the page. Now that's not right. I literally had to put the keyword in quotes to get a search result with a page containing that keyword. That's scary if you consider how we approach building pages and how keywords play a role in how we design our stuff. If Google isn't fetching pages that contain keywords that people are typing in the search box, surely this indicates serious issues.
I hold out hope that this isn't the final brew. I hold out hope that based on what I've seen, that things HAVE to change for the better. Imagine. A search that fetches pages at the top of results that don't contain that keyword. Now that is what I call nuts.
