Great thread.. I did experience the results of this update on this saturday, on one of my site.. lost about 50% of traffic on a top branded 15 years domain. hundreds of querry placed on the first page are now way behind... Still trying to see what can be done.. and i don't see any clue right now, what im seeing is a bunch of Crappy sites on page 1 on all those querries. Im seeing a lot of good branded domain/site way off to some lower place.. But looking at all the positions I lost, im even surprise i have not lost more traffick. So this is probably another effect of hummingbird, combined this with the fact we no more see what each keyword bring in term of traffic. really hard to know which way to go to improve anything. the site already have good content, and really good site stats.
