Is it me or does it look like a significant update is going on at google. I am noticing a number of SERP changes for a few of my sites and they've been fluctuating for the past few days.

Anyone else noticing any major changes?

I see definite movement on www2 and www3. However, nothing that looks that earth-shatteringly different on the SERPs I monitor.

Added: for anyone to check out for themselves, try:

I noticed this evening that the number of pages that appear for my site with the "site:www.domain.com" command has dropped pretty dramatically (around 25%), but for the search terms I follow, things seem pretty stable. Some of the rankings did change slightly within the last week.

Their does seem to be some sort of adjustment or shift in data in the serps that I monitor, it is a little more than the usual flux of regular daily updating

One of our sites that was PRO'd, and fell prey to the noTitle/noDesc problem in the June update has come back from nowhere 2-3 days ago.

The site now again follows the usual allinanchor as one would expect, so I expect it to again show PR once the visible update occurs.

It's either an update or Google has relaxed the penalties... we should soon know.

I'm seeing everything right where it's been. Nothing's changed any more than it usually does day to day, not for me anyway.

I see some minor fluctuations in Serp, quite more than normal but not that much. Since Monday my overall traffic seems to increase by 25-30%.

I have seen a number of shuffles with the SERPs as someone else has put it, and yes to repeat what has already been said, a lot more than usual.

One that is interesting to me however is the search for my keyword on google, shows my position to be #2 and a competitor to be #1.

I then select pages from australia only, and my site is #1, whilst the same competitor is #2. (Both sites are also Aussie).

I thought that was strange - I could not think of a reason why the positions would change when selecting worldwide or sites from Australia only. Considering both sites are from Australia. Anyone have any ideas of why this may happen?
