Each the early chatter throughout the search engine optimisation group are displaying this and in addition the Google monitoring instruments. Some are displaying 20-60% drops in site visitors since this started rolling out. It’s too quickly to make sure however I wished to share what we have seen thus far.

Will This Be A Big Update
Time will tell but core updates tend to be noticeable and SEOs do generally see widespread changes with these updates. Plus Danny Sullivan kind of hinted that we might see changes with the next core Update, as Glenn Gabe reminded us below. But not because the helpful content Update and core updates are related, they are not. More because the scores together might tip some scales for some, if they have issues with both separate ranking systems…

Seeing an enormous drop in site visitors, however no adjustments in rating in SERP
Very large drop immediately… wowwww

Among the early chatter on Twitter:
My traffic is down (by 20% approx) but I keep checking my rankings and they are pretty much the same… Perhaps I am losing rankings from adjacent queries and not my targetted keywords.

I know everyone complains about core updates, and Google tends to ignore them. But, if you don’t allow time for people to analyse trends from previous updates then how do you expect them to improve or learn?
