    Almost an hour ago, Matt Cutts posted this tweet:

    I had a feeling that after this I would regain the positions and to my amazement, each of my single EMD's had moved up (not at their previous positions but still, its a good sign)

    Have you noticed yet any good news? Any changes?

    EDIT: This is what I'm talking about!!!

    LOL...it's 0.3%

    While that is still a lot of search results. That's 1 in every 333 results will be affected.

    You can pretty much take the 0.3%, add any random series of numbers to it and it would still be more accurate than the official figure ;)

    0.3% bullshit

    This will affect 3% atleast, like every other update they always post the wrong figures

    Wow, they're coming in thick and fast at the moment. Hopefully I'll see some recovery when I wake in the morning. Not gonna place any bets on it, but you never know.

    EMD domains are 0.3% of the whole domains, which means that the update affected all EMDs. :)
