    There has been a big chaos from morning today. However until few hours back, I was happy with my sites as nothing major happened, however on checking the SERPs from different country proxies, I as shocked to see that for some very important keywords like 'earn online' and 'earn online money' for which I was ranking 3 and 1 respectively, the site moved to second and 4th page respectively in a few countries like India and other south asian countries, however they are still ranking in the first page at 1 and 5 in US and (Canada, checked through a proxy).

    Any of you guys have this kind of SERPs? I had a particular strategy and focused on link diversity and focused on sites ranking in US and Europe. However I never expected this kind of a change. My income has not taken a hit as my US/Canada traffic is intact.

    For another website in which I used social marketing to drive traffic and monetize, the fb page and pinterest usernames are ranking higher than the money site. I don't have any issue with this, but don't understand why google is evolving backwards and giving more and more irrelevant results. I don't have any issue if a top site is ranking ahead of my site.. but when fanpages and pinterest pages of mine are ranking ahead of the money site, then there is something seriously wrong with google algo.

    LOL you know by the information you have put up I have worked out your site. Not a great idea to be exposing your site on a public forum. However to answeer your question my Serp hasn't moved on the 10 sites I have checked in the last week. Not in any country.

    Actually I did lose a site. Interestingly some of my other more spammy linked sites are doing better!

    I haven't had this situation before but what I really noticed was that inner pages seem to rank better than the homepage when it is more relevant to the anchor texts. For example, if I want to rank link pyramid online (couldn't think of anything, just saw the banner in BHW ads) and my site is named pyramidlinking.com, Google would rank pyramidlinking.com/link-pyramid-online better despite most of the links for that anchor text is going to the homepage. It might be just a weird situation if I'm the only one experiencing this.

    Same here, spam sites are ranking better than the "white" ones

    Ranking inner pages is fine.. but the problem is spammy links getting the ranking in first page for some very high competition keywords.. Really strange, however I just working on being not so dependent on google for my IM needs.

    This is very common nowadays. In 3-4 weeks your homepage will outrank your social pages, provided they all have the same title.
