    I've seen some serious dancing today, some KWs went to 1st page while others went off first 10 pages...

    Maybe they fix what they broke?

    I don't think it had as big an impact as the first Penguin filter did. I'm seeing no changes at all in the sites I'm looking after.

    Any thoughts on the cause? Have you been doing any SEO to it in the past month?

    I see the site that was ranking no.2 to my number 1 site just got wiped out. Otherwise no changes for me.

    I'm seeing changes across a few niches I have sites in -- my sites in those niches haven't recovered yet but the first page results are generally much, much better than what they were.
