We just saw some major un-sandboxing but now it seems like we're back in the dirt, sort of.
We're seeing hundreds of positions type slides for sites that ranked very well as of last friday.
A few sites are showing no noticable change in rankings however.

Um ... not the sites I am seeing rear their ugly heads! Their spam methods work just fine on both MSN and Yahoo, so what if Google removes them?
They have a dozen more sites which are cloaked and seem to make Googlebot very happy. These guys are killing the viability of search engine algos.
I see major staggering in hourly hits for some sites and not others.
If I look at my monthly AVG. hits per each hour of the day for two of my sites. (We manage about 20 mid to huge sites) I see for example a slow steady increase as normal from about 9am --> 12Am; 10 AM being the most hits per day.
But recently each hour there is a swing (Decrease of 50% from avg) from the most recent hour just before the hour of the 50% decrease, then there is another increase of 50% above the last hour that is line with my normal hits for that hour.
It is hard to explain in typing but I am trying.
Anyway there are large swings in total avg. hits, this is not normal for a site with many hits per day during the lunchtime hours 10AM-2PM
If I compare the monthly view (total hits per hour-monthly running total) and the daily views (totals per each hour for one day) I see these 50% swings.
Anyone else see this, Hope you are with me here on my explanation?
The dup penalty that my site suffered also meant that the page was not updated so often (Yahoo has a more recent copy). Yahoo is showing what I consider to be a truer picture of the top competitors. So the massive changes in the SERP's are certainly interesting
