>>No need to report spam yet the update is not over.<<
Actually GoogleGuy encouraged the Folks to report spam already now and not to wait. Take a look ;-)

McMohan, if you see spam, I'd report it now with jagger2. If it's canonicalization or ranking or supplemental, I might hold off to see how jagger3 looks for you.
I think you're trying to see how your total traffic will be. I'd wait a few days till they all spread out.
As for my site: I will have to wait longer I guess. I had an issue with a link from another site of mine (mod_rewrite error and Google made it look like it was 8000+ links) and I guess I was penalized for a set amount of days.
I removed them via Google remove on or around the 10th of this month. Let's hope that it's only a 30 day period as I don't even rank for "domain.com," and got about 5 obscure google referrals yesterday ;).
Just need to get the motivation to update a site daily that is not ranking...
I wish I knew what I could do as after Jagger1 my traffic was down 50% - if things stay like this they will no doubt be down by around 70%!)
Is it at all possible that g is giving heavier concequences to domains that have all of the subpages interlinked with anchor text throughout the site? I almost want to say yes, but then i see pr5 on a large amount of those sub pages. Sorry if i sound confusing, it is not intentional.
Come on Google, sort it out and put our hard-worked and honest sites back where they should be. Some of us cannot wait "weeks" for this all to settle down, if it ever does.
Markoi, I would give us index feedback on Jagger2 if you think there are ranking issues. We'll be looking more closely at spam feedback, but some people will be reading the index feedback already, and we'll really pore over it starting with Jagger3.
I gots to head into work. Everybody knows how to give us spam feedback (spam report form) and index feedback (dissatisfied link) with jagger2, I'm hoping.
I am using plain, simple html, no css, no scripts, don't know how to use any of that stuff. I only see that the code is validated, that's all.
However, google is showing me 1 external link for the specific page in question.
Would I be correct to assume if the pages that I have linked to are showing in full on yahoo and msn, and google is only showing 1 external, google is considering the pages that i am getting the links from are bad sites?
On another search, I can show: Affiliate links (not an affiliate site mind you, an affiliate link) ranks #5, a 404 page ranks #7 . A forum user ID ranks 3 & 4 is a forum page totally unrelated to the search (username happens to be the particular search).
For one keyword that I actively monitor, a user profile on slashdot (again a forum username) ranks #4, behind some very legitimate, relevant sites.
Jagger 2 ain't lookin much better.
