    Well one site went up one rank, and that's all I see. Woohoo.
    Oh, wait! One site went from 121 to 74. Oh yeah, now we're kickin' some ass.

    Yeah, I've had some client sites drop in ranking over the past few days, but noticed a sharp decrease across the board this morning.

    I am seeing normal google dance stuff, some up some down, hope its nothing major, always a pain when they do something drastic and we have to adapt. I mean who the hell do they think they are, don't they know some of us are working really hard to pay the dog food bills!

    Yeh G has been acting a bit weird recently. I've seen about 20 domains going crazy in rankings.

    My main site dropped by around 10 - 20 positions for a few of it's main keywords today. Not great (It was previously on page 1 & 2 for them).

    I also lost some good rankings, but this happened in mid to late january already

    that is when google announced algorithm changes in order to fight off spam more effectively

    so idk, but that may have something to do with it
