My guess is experiments for the upcomming Panda.
I have lost big traffic yesterday and today (UK), but not going to change anything (not sure what to improve anyway) until I know Panda is here.
We know that Google Panda is about quality, but who's perception of quality are we talking about?
If they think that by putting the biggest websites in the world (ebay amazon youtube) at the top of all rankings suggests quality, then Google becomes a directory rather than a search engine that gives quality options.
They have lost their way and I blame Bing for not capatalising on it more.
I.e. Tell the world
Why are we a better search engine than Google? This is why.
If Google were in any other industry there would be an issue with a lack of competition and we webmasters would not have to have all our eggs in one basket.
