It was looking like we weren't seeing any improvement from this update, nor any loss, so I was pleased. Then yesterday (Sunday) mid-day the traffic started dropping and continued through the day until it ended up being probably our worst Sunday in years (and Sunday is our best traffic day of the week). Today is looking grim as well. We've also lost keyword positions for 3 days in a row now. Nothing overly dramatic but it's been a consistent small decline across the board. My site is still being very heavily spidered though so maybe this isn't over yet. We're going on a full week now of HEAVY spidering. Highly unusual - since I've been tracking it I haven't seen this level of Googlebot activity for this long a stretch.
