Google Algorithm Update

The Google search results don't seem to be settling down at all, at least not over the past five weeks or so. I am seeing more chatter and signals that there was another search ranking algorithm update, probably a smaller one, yesterday. Many of the automated tools are showing signs and I am also seeing some chatter.

Some are suggesting this may be a tweak to the Google Birthday Update from September 27th. As I said, the past five weeks or so were pretty active, here is our coverage of just Google updates over the past five weeks or so:

The ongoing WebmasterWorld has some chatter spiking back up again. Here are some of the comments:

And .. the last Sept27 update rolled back .. or some tweaks happened .

We are seeing results back to pre- September 27 data set this morning also. Odd.

Looks like the SERP sensors are up again...

Anyone seeing any movement?

Here are some tweets directed at me:

So it seems somewhat small, it may be a small tweak to the last update or it may be just a hiccup? What do you all think?
