I've been working on my site everyday for the past 3-4 months updating the css and adding new features that our site visitors have been asking for. I actually surprised myself just how much I could accomplish if I put in 12-14 hours a day into this site.
For the first time since 2002 or so I'm being rewarded with lover ranking and losing 60 percent of google traffic.
I always thought that if I deliver to the user rather than google, the SE's will reflect that and that was the case for a very long time. Never had any problems with other updates, actually benefited since I only concentrate on long term, white hat stuff.
I understand that google is trying to fight spam and make things better but I see the opposite so far in my neck of the woods.
Of course this might be just noise associated with the current update and things will settle down down the road, we'll see...
