Importance: Low

GoogleGuy says recent observed changes do not represent an algo change.

Personally, I find this hard to believe, at least for a small number of query phrases. I have seen sites go from #1 to #100 in one day, in a stable industry. That can't be explained by "new data".

Hey SyntheticUpper, the last time I saw a post of yours I checked the email and spam report queues to see if you'd sent in any reports. You hadn't, so I suggested contacting us if you wanted us to see specific feedback. I just checked again and still no emails or spam reports from you. If you'd prefer to post here with no details about the searches you do that's your choice, but the offer still stands if you want to send specific searches or spam reports to be checked out. I'm curious which searches you and ILuvSearchEngines dislike so much. :)

I wouldn't call this an update, because no new algorithms have been pushed. In an SEO world in which search engines update their index every day, there's always going to be new data going out. That's one of the reasons that I advise people to spend less time on their toolbar PR, rankings, or a single keyword phrase and more time seeing how they do across several search engines, seeing if they can be relevant for diverse phrases, and on looking at their logs to figure out what keywords users are typing to really find the site.
