    Hey check your sites, especially foreign sites. I just had a batch of sites all tank. I put them into GWT.. no manual action.

    Looks like testing / rolled out Penguin right before Christmas?

    Pretty sure it's Penguin... Not sure what else could've dropped all these sites at once, without any manual action.

    But again, none of my sites in the USA were affected yet.

    Nothing on -algoroo.com Were your sites linked together in anyway? I guess we'll see if other sites get rank changes later today if it is penguin related.

    This was a pretty significant change. I've been in the SEO game a long time, and I [usually] know when an algorithm has been updated.

    Being there was no manual action on these sites and they all dropped at once, I can only assume there was an update (at least in foreign SERPs)

    Manual action messages in Google WMT often come a few days after your rankings drop.

    I saw big hit on two websites and i don't really know, this got me confused. No big chances on several keywords.

    I think google is just playing a low game here.

    Remember if you get hit this algo is real time. As it always should have been. This means you should be able to get back on track as soon as you clean up your site's act.

    none of my own / client's sites got hit , yeah indeed there are some movements but nothing major ,

    Most likely it should be penguin , a lot of my competitors got hit in the last 2 days because of using lame pbns

    Hmm.. that's VERY strange that no one else was impacted. Do you guys have any foreign sites or only in the USA? Again, only my foreign sites were affected.

    You're wrong I'm afraid. Google just confirmed Penguin will not update until 2016.

    Have you used PBN links or linked bad properties to all of your sites or left very obvious footprints which could possibly explain the uniform drop?
