    Default Google Update Coming...

    Official Google Webmaster Central Blog: Another step to reward high-quality sites

    In the next few days, we’re launching an important algorithm change targeted at webspam. The change will decrease rankings for sites that we believe are violating Google’s existing quality guidelines. We’ve always targeted webspam in our rankings, and this algorithm represents another improvement in our efforts to reduce webspam and promote high quality content. While we can't divulge specific signals because we don't want to give people a way to game our search results and worsen the experience for users, our advice for webmasters is to focus on creating high quality sites that create a good user experience and employ white hat SEO methods instead of engaging in aggressive webspam tactics.
    The change will go live for all languages at the same time. For context, the initial Panda change affected about 12% of queries to a significant degree; this algorithm affects about 3.1% of queries in English to a degree that a regular user might notice. The change affects roughly 3% of queries in languages such as German, Chinese, and Arabic, but the impact is higher in more heavily-spammed languages. For example, 5% of Polish queries change to a degree that a regular user might notice.

    Definitely seeing lots of movement. Will be interesting to see how this settles out over the next few days.

    One odd thing I've noticed is that a couple of EMD sites that I owned (and had pretty much neglected) got their exact match rankings pummeled. I had never done any link building to any of these domains and they had been ranking bottom of the first page or top of the 2nd page for years (relatively uncompetitive terms). Maybe a tweak to EMD domain value got snuck into this update? Or content-freshness?

    Meanwhile, a site that I keep an eye on (competitor) with one of the spammiest backlink profiles that I've seen, doesn't seem to have been touched in this update.

    This is the case for me. I got screwed last week but don't really see any change today.

    I noticed the exact same thing with with quite a few of my EMD sites that were in the same exact situation (no link building but hovered on bottom of page 1 or page 2) as yours.
