>>Well, I am sorry, but it's nearly 12 days later and I just don't see it. Just the normal flux.<<
It depends on how you define "normal flux" ;-)
Do you consider the followings as normal flux:
- new serps
- new backlinks
- new numbers of results
- fresh filters applied
But I thought you noticed it 12 days ago (msg 9) ;)
I don't think that anyone here is talking about backlinks. They're talking SERPs.
What I find interesting is that GG has told us there was no change to the algo, yet some still believe there was a change.

Some of us see things as Danny Sullivan does and still regard what happened as update.
So we disagree on the definition of what´s an update with Matt and our kind fellow member GoogleGuy who might see things in a Googlish way, with all due respect ;-)
Could that explain the limited areas where changes have taken place?
Everyone is talking about a backlinks update. I can only see this for 1 of my 6 sites.
The appearance of extra results for some generic keywords could also be pointing to this direction.
Just a thought
I dont know - seems strange - obviously the biggest thing they need to fix is canonical urls - if/when they fix it or each attempt things happen - but does that qualify us an update.? Who knows!
>>The SERPs have changed for us, the backlinks have increased from 4,800 to 26,700 on one site and 15,900 to 48,800 on the other, and our traffic has dropped 20%. <<
Would you be kind to post which sector you are in. Because it seems that Google is tweaking/updating by sectors.
However, a 'sitename' only search is bringing up 4 times as many results as it did two weeks ago. Jumped from 25k to 104k as of this morning.
Yes GoogleGuy, step in and enlighten us.
But one thing that I am sure of, it would be better off to focus on site building and come back and check my results in a month rather then constantly looking at 2 up 3 down 4 up types of changes.
This kind of reminds of stock trading...constantly looking at intraday results trying to figure out every 10 minute conspiracy when none exists.
I am going to think of this as a opportunity to get more work in before the next update.
