    A lot of ppl are seeing major movement in Google right now, but make sure your location is set to USA, you are logged out of web history and you are logged out of your Google account.

    Just checked manually in incognito and saw the SERPs that seomoz rank tracker provided are true, I just dropped 8 ranks again. Google is being really odd :|

    Clear cache and cookies then check rank using

    Code:
       [URL]https://adwords.google.com/d/AdPreview/?__u=1000000000&__c=1000000000[/URL]  
    Set Domain as
    Code:
     [URL="http://www.google.com"]www.google.com[/URL]  
    Location - USA

    What you are reporting can be attributed to Google dance :)

    Cheers

    So it's Google Dance? How long would I need to wait to get my original SERP back?

    &pws=0 and the rankings are jumping all over for almost everyone on this forum. Keep doing what you've been doing and it should dance itself into a better spot.

    I think it is Google Dance and it is happening not with you only, this is for various sites. i have one site and i am also surprised to see variation in ranking within hours.

    Got my original SERP again (sometimes decreasing or increasing 1 SERP) but hopefully it keeps increasing until 1. :) Good luck!
