    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 wonder if any HP staff went to the conference in SF yesterday.

        I feel like Google coming out with statements like that is a little mean. It's like they want everyone shaking in their boots.

    Yesterday a Google rep and I met because they wanted to beta test some things on my food blog.  Although this was a totally different department  I did talk to her about how very unpopular the company was becoming with the writers I knew - and I cited some examples... including hubpages...  I don't know if it will do any good but I tried.
