google updating logoI am seeing early signs of a possible Google update underway today. The WebmasterWorld thread started to get some chatter yesterday of people noticing shifts in the search results.

One WebmasterWorld senior member said, "Jez, something without doubt is happening. We've seen all the tell tale signs."

Most of the tools that track these updates are not currently updated for today. DigitalPoint (see sidebar) and Algoroo are and show signs of an update:

Another WebmasterWorld member said:

Is something brewing? I am getting a lot of foreign visitors hitting my site. Usually a sign of something in my recent experience. We are probably due a Penguin refresh perhaps.

Have you noticed major changes in your rankings and Google referrals yesterday?
