The old "I've seen big drops on Google" question

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Hi Everyone

It's been a while since I've visited the forum.  I just thought I'd
ask if anyone has seen big changes in Google over the last two weeks.
I know its a question you see in the forums all the time.  But I
monitor about 20 sites on a weekly basis and changes have been minor
for the last 2 or 3 years, up and downs as expected, then last week we
saw a number of major jumps with some sites.  First the spammier sites
went up and the older more established sites down slightly, then this
reversed a couple of days later.  And yesterday/today (the report
takes a long time to run) I saw 6 sites in the same industry (mixture
of spammy and good) all drop places quite dramatically.

Anyone seen anything similar, any ideas what is going on?  Possibly
rumblings continueing from the May update?

And by the way, I'm not concerned about the drops as I know that
they'll bounce back, just wondering why?
