    I want to have a thread totally about the sites which weren't hit and that benefited from the new G update.

    If you had 1st page rankings and some or all of your sites just fell, what are the characteristics of the new top 10 for your keywords?

    Are there sites with either equal or worse quality compared to yours ranking?
    Are there sites with either spun content or obvious BH backlinks?
    What kind of backlinks do they have?
    Is the top 10 you were in the same, minus your sites, or is it replaced mostly by sites which weren't previously ranking?
    Are there newly created sites?
    Are your or other people's web 2.0s outranking you, any in 1st page?
