Google Update BrewingSome of the more focused and obsessive SEO/Webmaster forums are taking notice of Google's search results shifting around a bit too much. Some are saying that over the past couple days, the Google results for some of their web sites have dropped, popped back up and dropped again. This is sign of either Google testing something or Google is about to release something big.

We noticed changes back in mid-February, which might be related to this. We know we are waiting for a Panda update as well as a Penguin refresh.

The folks at WebmasterWorld, Black Hat World and Google Webmaster Help have some webmasters noticing these changes. Here are some quotes from the threads:

SERPS are all over the place today! Is something going on?

Traffic drop at exactly 26/02 6:00pm. Traffic down by 10% until now.

Anyone else noticing the update?

The site had some of its content pages improving in the rankings just a couple of days ago. However, during the last 1-2 days, my website suffered a huge drop in rankings. Many pages fell out of the first 20 pages. Do you have any idea of what might be causing this and possible remedies? Thanks!

100% there is update. Lost my 2 sites in last week. Looking for 2015 ranking factor feeling wired

Have you noticed anything? Do you think something big is going to touch down really soon?
