    I don't know this is the new Google update on April 18 or just a normal dance . I have seen this is impacting lots of site . I have confirmed from my lots of other friends also and they are also facing loss in SERP and rank movement fro April 18th.

    my lots of keywords were ranking on page 1,2,3 and now major are drop back . some are back to page 3 and 4 but still some are page 9 or +.

    please confirm that others are also facing similar kind of rank changes. if yes Google has change some thing big in his Algo.

    Welcome to world of changing SERP.....................keep working and working . till Google F.................. us.

    Confirm. Many websites ranking #1 dropped back to pages 3-4. If anyone have any other info, would really appreciate.

    Google and Matt Cunts are EVIL. This has always been their master plan to make search engines convert in to ad sales first and foremost. These small changes are nothing more than an online game of "Just The Tip" with your Prom Date. The Internet used to be the only place where the "Little Guy" could earn a living and actually compete with the Walmarts, Amazons and other soul-less monopolies, but not anymore. I mean for those of us who still dance to Google's game it can still be profitable, but I still get personally angry each time I hear that another Panda, Penguin, Death Eagle algorithm change.

    I have several product sites and do nothing but drop shipping and used to have a few competitors that had employees and even a physical location and inventory. Those guys closed up shop, website not found and they are gone. Part of me is like "Hell Yes, one less competitor" and the human side of me feels bad for these guys who were doing what they love and were more passionate about it than me, but they just could not keep up. Yes, I know I can't fully blame Google for these guys not rolling with the punches, but these were real people and it just shows me the real possibility of Google's ability to control all information on their own terms. Small businesses all around the world have actually been harmed so that Google can put the Monopolies at the top and sell more ads to those who can not compete organically.

    If I ever meet Matt Cunts I will struggle to not throw a warm cup of piss in his face.

    My #1 ranked website for a micro niche got busted earlier this week and de-indexed. I'm sure this has something to do with it but I haven't seen anything or anyone else talking about it recently so I figured it was just me. Guess not.

    I'm not sure if it's an update but 1 major competitor take a dive. I'm holding the #1 spot now, so I'm not complaining.

    Not affected any of my sites in a negative way, not even my churn and burn which some moron NEGSEO'ed. I have noticed an increase in traffic for most my white sites.
