Google.com Search Results Shake Up on April 10

Reports began trickling in from DigitalPoint Forums and via WebmasterWorld on April 10th, of recent changes to the Google index.

Let me pull out quotes from both threads:

Today my site is back at its previous position (2nd)

Well I had a an *old* (1996) site that dropped in serps around the 6th of March (from like first page to page xx). Today is the first day they appear to be coming back.

I saw exactly the opposite - decade old site that ranked decently just disappeared overnight

Seems like mine is back too.... keeping my fingers crossed that it will last a while until next time....

I had a site pop back up today to the #2 spot after totally disappearing for a few months. It's been top 3 for 3+ years before that.

All this type of chatter spiked up on Tuesday, April 10th.

There have been no official confirmations from Google, as far as I know.

Forum discussion at DigitalPoint Forums & WebmasterWorld.

Since this update of Google Index, it seems that Hotfrog directory top position on certain request and domain names have disappeared... Some link between the two?
