    I have 2 money site that i am currently working on, experienced huge drop in rank.

    They use totally different link types, and different niche. One of them is mainly for usa/international, and the other one is for local search.

    The only similarity is that both of the site hosted under one hosting account which is in cloud hosting. What did you guys think?

    P/S : Apologies my bad english.

    Are you sure it isn't some manual action or new links hitting your site? my site did fine today.

    give 1-2 weeks to make sure it's penalty or just google dance and also check your google search console.
    usually it takes 1-2 weeks after huge drop in rank, manual actions appear to your account.
    hopefully it just google dance :)

    Yes looks like another update. One of my sites got hit and i seen big shuffle in rankings for various keywords with a few competitors hit too. My other sites moved up i guess cause others got hit.

    Minor update maybe.

    Because I see a bunch of keywords get into top 100 that were previously nowhere found.

    No major impact to my sites whatsoever.

    No wonder. So, probably some minor update. Lets wait for a week. Just fyi, my site is over 5 month already i thought, so no sandbox or whatsoever. The site also survived previous 'Fred' update.

    I haven't seen anything significant, although I did bump up to #1 for a keyword I've been targeting for months. Unfortunately there is a fucking answer box from some PBN above it, but other than that its the same old 1-2 spot shuffle for most keywords.

    Patience! There's no update, your site is relatively new so some fluctuation is to be expected.

    You'll be fine.

    I think Google successfully updated mobile first index. Because, within 4 days 300% organic traffic drop but the keyword rankings are constant.
