A Google Search Algorithm Update Over December 15th Weekend

It looks like over the weekend, starting maybe this past Friday or Saturday and picking up speed on Sunday that Google pushed out another search ranking algorithm update. I saw chatter from the SEO community over the weekend and the automated tracking tools are also picking up signs of an update.

The issue I have right now is that ongoing WebmasterWorld thread is not loading, I think there is a domain name issue at WebmasterWorld. But there was a nice amount of chatter at that forum over the weekend. The Black Hat World forums also has chatter. Here is some of the chatter I could find, with WebmasterWorld being down at the time I am writing this:

Seems like another update is underway. Lost 85% of traffic.

Yeah, definitely another update rolling out.

Without a doubt another major update rolling out. All websites shifted 10-30,000 organic searches a day. About 20-30% of website traffic a day.

The tools also show some signs of a Google algorithm update.
