    There was a confirmed Google update, lots of websites of
    people got devalued.

    There are already 2-4 threads based on that update.

    Yeah I've noticed a drop of one of my niche sites today. Could be coincidence.

    Mudbutt are those your sites or ones you have detailed knowledge of? I'm getting (slight but measurable lol!) anxiety and I don't even have anything off the ground! This is the first I've heard of this I will look for the other threads mentioned.

    I have done a little more digging (Haven't been able to work much lately so not in the loop) and it looks like there was an update. What it was is questionable, but from my data it looks like a Panda.

    If anyone could share some data with me I would like to do some comparisons with my sites and other sites that dropped. Just PM me. If you are just moving around 2 or 3 spots don't bother, but if it is significant such as dropping a page or gone all together please let me know.

    As of 6 hours ago I lost one site from #1 down to #2... interestingly, the ranking order stayed the same, but all the top sites were pushed down one slot because the previous #9 took out #1.

    I'm not sure it's due to an update though, because everything/everyone else stayed the same.

    I use the website algoroo, which is normally accurate for seeing changes in google's algorithm. One site is starting to slip down the slope hopefully it won't be too severe.

    the screenshot above is traffic stats for one of my sites. Lost 4 sites total 2 days ago. All sites have similar drops like the screenshot above.

    Any similarities you have noticed?

    For my sites that dropped I have used 301 Redirects, unique/quality content, private links, blognetwork links, no sape - but then again, some sites with similar techniques went up few spots.

    a Penguin data refresh maybe. I notice rankings was back to the same as 2-3 months ago, but not a big defference.
