    I didn't do any kind of SEO in the past 3-4 weeks.

    What could be the reason for this?

    Same thing happened to me yesterday. What kind of site are you running?

    Yes, I saw this. Happened to my 4 blogs. Two weeks ago, I noticed an increase in page views and then slowly there was ugly decrease. My research online told me that Google did a rank update for all websites.

    No, this was some kind of penalty that occurred yesterday. Probably had something to do with on-page content rather than links. Anyone else was affected by this?

    Well, a penguin refresh is supposed to take place this August. This could be it. I thought they do it at the end of each month. This week Google is infatuated with Tumblr.
