    Did anyone else get hit with this latest update by Google? I was top 3 for hundreds of keywords and lost 70% of traffic. Now the results in my niche are AWFUL. Big keywords returning 6 30 second you tube videos in top 10, spammy sites etc. Any thoughts, or maybe Big G still shifting?

    There is no news about update. It may be a normal fluctuation

    Lot"s of news Cutts tweeted on 28th and said was EMD update but later admitted was major penguin update at same time. SearchEngineLand has tons of people talking about it. The results in my niche now are horrible

    Yes, I have what I think is a very good site and it appears to have been hit pretty hard. Yes, it is an EMD but it has more than 80 pages of original content and many quality inbound links. Any algorithm change that would affect my site is not very carefully tailored to address the problem that Google said it was targeting. I suspect that despite their talk of "thin content" and "low quality", they simply slapped EMDs pretty much across the board.
