    I've had some crap sites hit, tbh surprised it took so long.

    I'd be interested to see the quality of the solid sites and see whether they have been hit or just readjusted for local which seems to be happening a lot at the moment.

    I was just about to post a question and ask if anyone had noticed any changes in ranking, my sites have been hit hard, for one site i had 10 top tens in google and they all dropped 70 odd places,
    My first ranking for my hotel site got hit also from 1st to 7th, it was solid for months, but laterooms was touched at all, seems to favour the big guys this, but I can safely say I wont be earning any money today

    LOLOL!!!!!

    You remember that arrogant twonk that used to post on here who has the paydayloans.org.uk site - well that article by Google that highlights a specific site that will be hit by the algo change - IT'S ONE OF HIS SITES!!

    Yes, google have singled him out specifically and walloped him!

    In the first group of 2 photos, one is an SEO spam site, the other is a post on a website spamming links for payday loans.

    It doesn't show up in Google anymore, but you can find it in Bing - it's near the bottom of the home page here:

    http://profitmonarchs.com/

    One of the cloaked links goes to here:

    http://www.nowaitloans.co.uk/

    Which is an identical site to: paydayloans.org.uk

    The nowaitloans site is registered to Scott Green, don't know if that's his genuine details.

    LOLOL I take my hat off to him, to be actually singled out and made an example of by Google like that.

    What a guy!

    LOLOLOLOL!!!!

    One of my sites has dropped from page 6 to around page 26.

    I always thought google want to deliver quality relevant content to its users??? But lately they are doing the opposite and favouring a lot of shite sites. (Thats not just sour grapes)! For example, search BABY NAMES.

    I used to run a decent baby name site that was on the first page for ages, i cant see it anywhere now. However 2nd page there is "baby-names dot co dot uk" It doesnt even contain any information relating to baby names. Its simply an amazon aff store, not exactly delivering the users what they are looking! Also alot of the other sites in the first few pages are discussions, Blogs, and inner pages from a site whos home page is shown on the home page.
