    Several important keywords on my main site dropped in rankings a couple nights ago and I am itching to know why. I am about 95% sure that it isn't a penalty. It's kind of sad to say, but I have been penalized enough to know when I have NOT been penalized. :rolleyes: Has anyone else experienced a sudden rankings drop over the last several days?

    I also see slight ranking increase/decrease on keywords that have been stable for months in the last few days.

    I really hope its just a dance. It's strange because some of my other keywords haven't moved an inch, including a keyword where I currently rank #1

    For most of my keywords that dropped, it was either a drop of several spots or a drop to the second page. Keywords that I had on the 3rd and fourth page dropped to pages 8-17!!
