I also saw very different results from that data center. I spot-checked others, though, and they seemed normal. Hopefully just a localized glitch?

it pains me to say, but I hope it stays this way. My money site, finally is ranking good for the home page (so far). it was with a dupe penalty for many months.

SEPR are better on the terms I monitor. Cleaner and more accurate.

Looks likee the same crap here. I posted on an issue in another thread that may be related. I'll give it a bump in a minute. Results for some searches that I monitor became riddled with course syllabi about ten days ago. I hope THAT is a glitch and not an update.

Seeing significant changes in one area I monitor. My site there has been underperforming for months and is just this morning showing several top 10s.

No significant changes (in fact, hardly any changes) for the keyphrases that I monitor.

OK. I happened to have had 2 browsers openend on the same search in Google. Browser #1 is showing this URL: www.google.com/search?q=expensive+widgets+in+somecity

Browser #2 has a URL of: www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=expensive+widgets+in+somecity&btnG=Google+Search

The difference - in Browser #1, our 5 year old non-spammy/non-affiliate/non-ecommerce site is #4 - where it has been (give or take a spot or two) for about 3 years - in the other window it is #33. No SEO tricks or major site reconstructions here - so the changes are definitely happening on Google's end.

A total of 3 of the top 10 sites for that query differ in the 2 datacenters above, and in my book a 30% shift is rather significant cause for alarm.

As a side note, I have seen a progeressive drop of about 60% in Google referrals for the past 2 weeks or so. "Coincidentally", about 3 weeks ago, we launched a $100 per day Adwords campaign. Any takers on the conspiracy theory of a Google AdWords/SERP Extortion Filter which drops sites that advertise in order to drain more blood from us poor "webmasters"?

My keyword has changed a little. Other forums also indicate that some people are seeing movement.
