    Not sure what the cause is yet, but it looks like I got slapped by Big G on or around the 11/12 of this month. My Google Search traffic has dropped by about 75%, I am still getting some traffic which is good, but most is from other referers.

    I know I have an issue with duplicate content, which is what I'm currently working on sorting out (And was before the drop)

    Firstly does anybody know of an update that would have coincided with this drop, so I know for sure what I'm fighting?

    And secondly once I've got my duplicate content sorted, does anybody have any advice on kick starting the recovery?

    I had a slight dip in traffic on the 5th, but nothing that wasn't well within the normal pattern of traffic. I assume you are saying this is the update of Penguin that happened on the the 4th, and this could be the update taking effect on the 11\12th which is what I'm seeing??

    It might be, not sure. One of my sites tanked on the 4th but since keywords have either stabilised or danced around. Haven't noticed anything around the dates you mentioned though.
