It looks like over the weekend, starting maybe this past Friday or Saturday and picking up speed on Sunday that Google pushed out another search ranking algorithm update. I saw chatter from the SEO community over the weekend and the automated tracking tools are also picking up signs of an update.

The issue I have right now is that ongoing WebmasterWorld thread is not loading, I think there is a domain name issue at WebmasterWorld. But there was a nice amount of chatter at that forum over the weekend. The Black Hat World forums also has chatter. Here is some of the chatter I could find, with WebmasterWorld being down at the time I am writing this:

Seems like another update is underway. Lost 85% of traffic.

Yeah, definitely another update rolling out.

Without a doubt another major update rolling out. All websites shifted 10-30,000 organic searches a day. About 20-30% of website traffic a day.

The tools also show some signs of a Google algorithm update.
