Google ShuffleA WebmasterWorld thread where webmasters keep track of every little move at Google is noticing some significant shifts in the Google search results over the past few days.

There are webmasters claiming huge traffic swings, up and down 40% at different times of the day and on different days.

The reports started coming in on February 6th or so and more and more webmasters are complaining of those shifts as of yesterday.

A couple of people even said their rankings are the same but their traffic dropped 40%.

Here are some quotes:

I'm ranking the same and my traffic was cut by 35-40%

I lost about 30% of my traffic over the weekend.

According to GA two of our sites are 35% UP yet sales are near ZERO!

Are you noticing major changes in the Google search results over the past few days?
