    Based on what I'm seeing on a number of my sites it seems likely that some sort of update came out of Google on the 9th/10th of this month. Could be something new rolling out, or could simply be the final rollings of Penguin perhaps. Whatever it is, however, seems substantial. Search Engine Round Table reported on it, and if you check Mozcast you'll see this was serious shit.

    It looks not to be on-site based. Definitely appears to be external based, and I'm pretty surprised there aren't more people around here talking about it.

    I too noticed a drop in rankings since last two days for a few keywords....some even went from first page to 3rd or 5th page. Two even went out of top100. Its surprising that during last penguin 4 update most of my keywords had moved higher.....but its opposite this time. There is some chatter that G has rolled back the Penguin 4 update. That could be a possibility or some people are saying that G does this every year just before Christmas to bring in fluctuations purposefully.

    Id say the likely cause was the US Presidential election diverting focus. Saw the same dips on my sites

    Hmmm I saw a drop on the 10th but it was at the same time as I accidentally left some broken links on the homepage so I put it down to that. Back up to roughly where it was now.
