There is certainly a disconnect/time lag between Google spidering site changes and those changes taking effect, and with the "rolling Panda" and Penguin (in which remote changes may impact your site) it really is getting impossible to get a clear idea of what is going on.
Google feels like Bing.
No, bing is much better now then g$$gle.
Tomorrow it will be another day.

So @Sand, could you please share or give some insights on what you do differently that grants you more traffic than ever?
If you want to get good at getting traffic from search, you have to unlearn all the crap you've learned -- while maintaining the essence of what makes the elements valuable.
In short, your SEO work on any given site should be invisible to humans, while being apparent to search engines.
I believe that we can only get the big picture when we actually observe who loses and who wins to really understand the differences between them.
The thing is very few of those negative experiences have turned positive which leads me to believe getting out of the penguin and panda sink hole is very hard/near impossible.

Almost all of my clients' sites have done well over the last two years.
In my sector that wouldn't be much of an advertisement for what you are doing.
I work in very competitive spaces, so maybe Google has paid a little extra attention to the results.
