Based on what my analytics are telling me Google did a refresh, dropping or reducing ranking on a handful of older rankings while increasing rankings on newer articles. My main search phrases dropped off the first page of Google last week but over the weekend most came back.
Interestingly I was getting a lot of searches for terms with quotes - ie "search engines" "yellow pages" those searches with quotes disappeared from last week compared to the week before.
My traffic is only down about 5% last week compared to the week before despite my main phrases disappearing.
I've been watching this last week pretty closely as my rankings started to drop the week before. Now everyone is saying their rankings dropped and mine came back on 2 sites that were hit. Interesting.
Also interesting is how my GWT impressions continue to rise, even through last week when my main rankings dropped.
