    I've noticed some strange (for me) results in the serps today and yesterday. I seem to be getting a bit of a sitewide slap.

    Nothing too major, but lots of my low competition stuff has taken a bit of a hit. These are pages that haven't moved in months (years even), and I don't do too much current work on them either. Most of their links came from SEOlinkvine and MAN as well as bookmarking. Everything that I'm currently working on is moving up - so I'm not too fussed, but maybe those networks have been hit by the Panda.

    Actually got a boost in a lot of SERPs today, some decrease in keywords I wasn't targeting. Other than that it's just the usual +-1-2.

    I'm very happy because I noticed a 5 spot jump in the keyword I've been working on for the last few weeks ;)

    PRobably just a bounce. Mine do it all the time, on a 12 year old aged domain. Just used to it know and give it a day to come back.

    Don't look like bounce or dance. It looks like a method I was using 6-12 months ago has been devalued. Usually (over 2 years now) I see about 1/4 of the keywords raise, 1/4 of the keywords drop and the rest stay stable. This is the first time I've ever had about 2/3 of them drop. They haven't dropped too far, so I'm not too concerned, but I've never seen so many red arrows in my results.

    I haven't looked too far into it but it does seem at a quick glance to be SEOlinkvine and MAN links that have gone walkies.

    Actually yes, some of my low competition EMD's were hit back a page or two.

    I actually moved in a good way. Around the same time you posted this thread I saw the update. :)
