    rankings were fine. yesterday i decided to change adsense 336x280 ad unit to above the fold (before it was inside the post), like this:

    WordPress Post Title

    336x280 ad unit

    <wordpress post here>

    40 mins ago all my rankings dropped, now nowhere to be found in G. not sure if it was because of this or the penguin update. but if it was penguin update my sites should of been hit way earlier ago like every1 else, not just now.

    the new google updates might be behind the fall of rankings.

    It was probably a bad time to change the layout of your webpage. The only way for you to find out is to change it back and see if your website bumps back up after it is re-crawled. Before doing that, give it a couple of days to see if your site comes back at the same ranking, with the newly positioned ad.
