Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 18.104.22.168
I think this is appropriate to this thread as to the condition of G being broke of sorts;

This update is currently on G*.com, but I suspect it'll propagate to other G* DCs and regional sites very soon. I appreciate if when anyone concurs / seconds my opinion would post here so we can set the re-tweak date as the 28 June 2010!
Although I don't know if this is related or not but one of my sites took a sharp drop around May 28th and I thing it is related to the end of May start of June changes pre Caffeine. I've noticed that when I do a site: operator search - the home page (which has over 20k links from authority websites) appears on page two - something it didn't previously do prior to that date (was always returned top).
Is this the case for anyone else who has taken a hit? Or is it non related? I would assume that there is less weight placed on the homepage, which is why the rankings dropped and why the page is now returning on page two for a site operator search.
Fingers crossed this is the begining of the end!indeed, as long as what you mean is the end of the problems caused by the mayday algo update, not us :)
Ususally Google's problems stem from them thinking they are doing something better than they are.
You are giving me some hope folks. By the way, do you see a correlation between your site traffic increase and the site: operator?
Something seems to be happening, as my number of incoming links as reported in GWT just doubled overnight. Still no change in rankings or traffic that I can see, but I've got my fingers crossed.
