Up after it finished. Flux for a few hours in the middle.
It looks like they cleaned house. The blog network linkers I shared with the mods several years ago in my old job........just looked and they were wiped out. I had checked periodically. The company that had purchased links from over 1000 domains slipped back several spots. A company that created an EMD simply to help with keyword branding now has that site ranking ahead of their main site that has been around since 95!
I never believe they're done when they say they are but if what we see now is what is going to stick they did for the first time take out some huge offenders in my new and old lines of work.
Going deeper and looking at the subpages and the spam pointing to them appears to have made a difference in how they now rank the products and articles contained within. Impressive
