Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
I looked into it and I cannot find the reason at all. I signed up for google sitemaps but it does not report any errors or faux pas'.
So I don't know where to look now. Any input very much appreciated!

is anyone else seeing a blend of pre and post july 27th - or am i imagining it
Here's a theory --
Perhaps the 27 June (and 27 July) updates were to try to deal with MFA (made-for-AdSense) sites? And those updates to the algos were deemed "not optimal" for either search or for Google's revenues?
Do any of you who've seen a drop/recovery or whatever, have lots of AdSense pages which *might* be construed by a (non-thinking) GoogleBot as being "made for AdSense"?
Could anything scare you more? No? What about a situation where only your site disappears?
While obviously concerning that the refreshes can be so wild in their fluctuations, the very fact that they have been negatively affecting strong content sites should tell you that the liklihood of being permanently penalized is relatively low.
Just like last month, and the 17th of June, and like the 27th of Sept when it happens yet again, just watch and try to figure out what is going on. 3-5 days later you should have a greater understanding, and hopefully regain your positions.
