Does google have different algorithms for different days of the month?

Google insists that their algorithm is automatic. But the recent traffic swings make me believe that it (algo) could be manually changed by google .
Reasons - change revenue patterns , other reasons?

From the 1st of september to the 5th of sept i saw a drastic dip in traffic almost zero .

5th - 10th a slight trickle of traffic
10th -15th moderate increase
15th -20th better traffic
20th more traffic than on the other days.


so either i am imagining things or the algo is tweaked manually.


There used to be a spammy Q&A site which used to rank number 1 many years (another reason why i dont really buy the whole algo story)

Update
25th - 30th the searches are still shitty on google but much better than on the 1st of september . Now google cant seem to find the actual keywork posted into their search bar (i guess this is due to their option to allower people to report scraper sites - this is probably abused)

Confirmed: Google Panda 2.5 Update Arrived This Week

Now with Baidus aggressive spidering of sites . I will learn chinese and post my urls on baidu than waste my time trying to give feedback to shitty google
 algo writers.

I also think the url remove tool is abused

The URL removal tool is intended for pages that urgently need to be removed—for example, if they contain confidential data that was accidentally exposed

Report spam, paid links, malware, and other problems to Google

I feel black hat seo and other guys are abusing these options given by google. This month is has become really difficult to find relevant information on google first page (most of these searches turn up on page 5 now!!)

I feel the report webspam is the best way for certain people to take revenge on a site they do not like

I do not think google has even realised this yet or have they?
