Does anyone have any input on why if this (June 27) is a mistake it is taking so long to fix?

Not seeing any imporvement at present, if anything our last few ranking keywords have dropped a few more positions. Google is already behind Yahoo and now MSN is catching up fast. Meanwhile one of our main old #1 positions is occupied by a site with a 401 error!

I only post this in the hope that G might be reading the boards as they sure as hell aren't communicating in any other way.

Yes very sad but true, Google has fallen behind MSN and Yahoo with out a doubt in terms of quality and relevancy. ALL of a sudden I find Ask.com the most relevant of all the SEs and also delivering the highest quality sites at top of SERPs. I study 7 sites in my sector intensely, analyzing every backlink to all pages and any new content they might publish like a relegion.

If G is not reading these forums for feedback, then they have become deluded. The deafening silence speaks a thousand words.

Phil_AM,

Good to know that your canonical issue got fixed. For me, 26/7 was when my canonical issue fixed during Big Daddy came back in full strength to exactly pre-Big Daddy days!

Pretty mad stuff, eh :-)

"site:mydomain.com" is working fine again for me too.
Also I'm back at the pre-27J position in the serps for a few searches I've tried.

Finally I can see the light at the end of the tunnel... I hope it isn't a train...

b.example.com hit 27 June
c.example.com hit 27 July!
l.example.com hit index command working again normal, improved
n.example.com hit 27 June
p.example.com hit 27 July!
r.example.com hit works as usual
w.example.com hit 27 June
www.example.com hit 27 June

2 more domains screwed up, only one, the smallest, working like usual

Early indications are that my site is coming back. Too early yet to say whether rankings will be as before, but it's looking promising. Fingers crossed.

Unfortunately it looks like an huge amount of internal pages have lost rankings. One of my competitors lost two top rankings they have held for five years, pages just gone.

Our site is coming back too, slowly but surely, site command is now working.

For all those old hands who are reading this thread and thinking "fools" for those of us that have been hit for the first time it's a steep learning curve, so please cut us some slack.

For big G thank you......

Looks like we've also completely recovered from June 27 event. We are back on the first page for many search terms and site command works fine again for first time since June 27.

Dear Google, Matt, GG and co,

As you know on the 27th June there was a major problem for many of us who unlike others are not intent on spamming your index. It seems from many of the posts here and from other webmatsters I know, many decent and authorative sites where sidlined for the past 4 weeks.

You have heard our cries, looked at the issue and for many, myself included, you have fixed the problem.

Thanks for restoring my faith and position,

D

I knew something would happen again on the 27th. Didn't sleep well last night and I wasn't surprised when this morning I lost yet another two sites and didn't get any important ones back :(

I still think there is a way to go before they fix this mess. Some results are better but I can still see junk sites where they have no place. Site command / page counts / supps are still an issue on the default .com SERPS - There are still plenty of sites out there that have not bounced back yet.

Wow, this morning it looks like my Google traffic is coming back! Six hours into the day and my Google traffic is already triple what it has been each day since June 27th. Also I notices that if I do a site command search on my site it comes up index first and is order. I don't want to get to excited yet but at least there is now some hope. It seems weird that this all happen June 27th and today July 27th I'm seeing improvements.
