Google Search Ranking Algorithm Update On September 4th & 5th?

I am seeing new signs of yet another search ranking update starting late yesterday, , through today, . There is some early chatter in both the WebmasterWorld and Black Hat World forums.

There are also some tools that are showing the change as well, not all of the tools because it might be too early for them to pick up on the changes yet.

It is way too soon to say what is going on, but the last Google update went unconfirmed by Google on August 29th or so.

Here is the chatter from the community:

Yesterday at around noon we got hammered down by 70%!

Massive update as I guess, Traffic down by 30-35 percent in India

Definitely there are some movements going on from the past couple of days. Patience always pays off in a good way. We might see something soon.

Guys – i noticed a major shift in my niche in the last 24 hours and also few other niches that I follow. has any body else noticed this?

Again, the chatter is limited but those complaining are seeing pretty massive drops in rankings. I will keep an eye on the chatter…

Here are the tools, not all are updated yet but keep on eye on them:
