I found this website with a list of all the Google updates in the past couple of years. If you track your traffic you can organize it in which "era" it did well and which "era" it dropped. There are also links to explain what each update focused on. Hope it helps...
Thanks Mayre - Here's the quake that hit me: Panda 3.7 — June 8, 2012 (Exact date) traffic fall by 50%. My traffic has now come back up to around 80% of June 7th values. Let's see if there are any specific reasons linked on that post. Thanks again
I read this evening that the next few Penguin updates are going to be "jarring and jolting" for webmasters and SEO's. For those who were affected by Penguin, it could be a bumpy ride. Didn't it affect links and spammy seo?
Matt Cutts: "You don't want the next Penguin update."
"we're still in the early stages of Penguin where the engineers are incorporating new signals and iterating to improve the algorithm. Because of that, expect that the next few Penguin updates will take longer, incorporate additional signals, and as a result will have more noticeable impact. It's not the case that people should just expect data refreshes for Penguin quite yet."

I don't know if it will do any good but I tried.

I have learned to accept that there are going to be ups and downs and prepare for the inevitable downs....

After the longest stretch in memory without an update to the site (nearly 3 weeks), we've just deployed a new release. The biggest change is the addition of a map capsule, which as the name would suggest allows you to include Google Maps in your hubs, for instance see Livelonger's hub on the...

When Panda hit I was a newbie so was not affected directly. Buy When the Penguin swooped down on us I was badly affected. I though those hubs that were doing great would never fully recover. The hubs I saw taking off and earning me money were new hubs. My best performers pre-penguin were...
