    I Have been seeing some massive movement in the SERPs today. Mainly upward movement but a little down. Anyone else seeing this or is it just me.

    seeing some movement on keywords that was worked on about 5 days ago. im guessing they had some kind of cache update today..it used to be faster now its 5 days behind about.. i think they did this to offset the effect that forum profiles has on sites since they kick in so quickly ..right??

    I recently saw about a 4-5 rank drop (from 3 or 4 to 8 or 9) on a few major keywords we rank for. Never seen these keywords drop like this in the past 5 years, even through Panda. We use a variety of White Hat SEO techniques including outsourcing some link building and the service we've used for the past 6 months with solid results and don't overuse it. I did order another batch of links relating to these keywords lately but nothing out of the ordinary that we haven't done in the past.

    I have noticed in the past that sometimes when Google first picks up the links you see a drop for a few days then it comes back up. I hope this is the case. I just decided to post this because the keywords in question I've NEVER seen this happen. They'be been top 5 for the past 5 years and only dancing around 1 or 2 positions max from time to time. Never 4 or 5 like I'm just seeing now.

    so it looks as if it is mixed across the board. Maybe it is a tweak in the algo. Will have to keep an eye on it over the next few days to see if these rankings stay or they fluxuate a bit more

    I've vanished off the serps today. Made a post about it earlier. Seems I'm not alone so maybe an algo change? Hope it's all going to work out!? :confused:
