    I have some local sites, and over the past few days they fell in rankings, but only in the cities that they are targeting. Meaning If I have City A Keyword, and look it up it will show that its in spot #3-5 when it used to be #1. IF I change the location setting in Google to somewhere on the other side of the country then it will still be #1. Anybody know what could be causing this?


    Scroogle says I am in the #1 position as well.

    Clear all your cookies,history,flush your cache,re-boot sometimes it is ip related if you've been using the same keyword in google all the time.

    Just had my friend check on her computer. This isn't making any sense to me. Anybody else experience this?

    Tried using different Ips, cleared cookies and caches, and had friends from different computers take a look. Does anybody know why my keywords will be penalized only in the city i'm trying to rank it for. This is making me sick to my stomach trying to figure this out.
