Ok as many of you have already realized there was a Google update. I am going to tell you my experience with this update and what has happened to my sites. After the last update I was screwed up pretty bad so I diversified my strategies before this one hit. I had 9 sites of which I tried different methods. First set of three sites I used just forum and blog comments along with social bookmarking. All of these sites have dropped in rank. One of them dropped off the map completely. 2nd set of sites I used social bookmarks, manual posting on high pr blogs, and press releases. 2 of the three sites moved up while one stayed the same. One of these sites is actually now on the first page for all 6 of my main keywords I am targeting. This was a nice surprise. The last set of 3 sites I used all Fiverr gigs. Pyramids, forum comments, and youtube comments. None of these sites moved up or down. They are in exactly or around the same positions they were. I don't know how this new update has affected any of you but from what I see the press releases helped out quite a bit. I hope some of you can gather some info from my experience here. Also, if your site was affected let us know how. Did it go up or down?
