    I have been noticing a lot of jumping around on Google the last couple of days. Some sites gaining positions, some losing positions. Is there a big update in process that anyone knows about?

    Could quite well be, pages for KW's I haven't worked on for months have gained rankings suddenly nice boost in traffic can't say if its just a coincidence and recently a few links have been crawled who knows.

    Yeah man,

    My keywords have dropped a couple spots. Pretty disappointing, seems like they are dancing though. I just hit them with alot of links so it could be that as well.

    Most of my sites are having a positive boost on SERPS this last days, but yeah, they are jumping around increasingly lately. Yesterday was more of a down day in terms of position, but today they are back up to the regular stance they've been occupying.

    PS: No massive linking lately, just to eliminate that factor in my particular situation.

    Matt Cutts talked about a new update happening very soon at the SXSW conference. It's set up to target "overly optimized" sites. This may be what is happening to you now.

    Probably from the insane number of links now being invalidated. Tons of blog networks go iced and their "link juice" had to have been pointed somewhere
