    MattCutts just replied on his G+ Profile that it was a MISTAKE:

    I saw a recent post where several sites were asking about their search rankings. The short explanation is that it turns out that our classifier for parked domains was reading from a couple files which mistakenly were empty. As a result, we classified some sites as parked when they weren't.

    I apologize for this; it looks like the issue is fixed now, and we'll look into how to prevent this from happening again.

    Are they going to be reversed though? My rankings still dropped off the face of this planet.

    I have experienced further drop in the rankings, don't know what's going on with big G. Just wondering whether it is another mistake by them :)
