While unconfirmed, it is possible that Google rolled out a semi-major update over the past weekend, as webmasters have taken to the forums to complain about loss in traffic. Barry Schwartz points to one WebmasterWorld thread in particular, in which a bunch of webmasters seem to think Google has indeed made a significant change. The person who started the thread says some webmasters are experiencing a 30 to 40 percent drop in traffic. Another user says they saw a 30 to 40 percent drop for a ten-year-old “authority site.”
