It's also nice to note that all of my clients are doing great in the new Google, except for 2, one who change their homepage without consulting me, and another has for long been engaging in a practice I told them would probably eventually get them in trouble (first warning issued in October 2002). One sent me an apology; the other is flying me in for a meeting to re-strategize their online marketing.

What is this?
Google still in processing or site punished by G.

One thing that I know for sure is that Google was not broken, meaning Florida was not a malfunction. They were testing someting new then. This might be the moment when they finally tweaked things to a reasonable level.

(For some reason, we seemed to miss the fact that it was your first post earlier today!)

Some of our clients had top positions (from nos. 1 to nos.3) They survived Florida update no problem, but then with the Gladys(I think that's the name here) update, they dropped to nowhere.
The only common factor they all had, was a reletively high keyword density in the copy - nothing that looked ridiculous or sounded stupid when read, but keyphrases repeated in headings, each paragraph etc.
Since the update, we have done nothing but watch. Some have returned thank goodness, but others still are nowhere. From these observations, keyword density was definitely a determining factor in the shake up.
Now seems like the time to act and lower the keyword density on those sites that lost their top positions. Then all we can do is watch with interest, look to create some more content and look for any decent links.
Cheers, enjoy the week-end (nearly here in South Africa)

There weren't any major changes made at all; I resisted the urge to make changes until the dust settled.
Popular opinion seems to be leaning towards the notion that G isn't done yet and we should expect more fine-tuning.
Your opinions and guidance mean a great deal to me. Does anyone have a moment to view the source code on the index page of one of my sites - http://www.lockpickshop.com and tell me what I might be doing wrong?
I haven't any "formal" SEO training and will soon be taking some of the courses offered. What I've learned has been from forums like this and all the books I can get my hands on!
Your help is appreciated.

It's been an "interesting" ride on the Googlecoaster over the past several weeks. The sites I am actually paid for working on I left alone, and thankfully they have recovered, some in positions better than where they started, pre-Florida.
