I found out today on Twitter that Google hit us with another algorithm on April 26th to weed out all of the spammers and their websites. So if you notice a big drop in traffic, you've probably been hit by it. Check to see if you got messages in your Google accounts on Google Central.
Just found out today, huh?
The forums has been full of threads about it, and anyway there were two hits, a Panda update on the 24th and Penguin on the 25th. Was there another on the 26th I didn't know about?
