    Well keywords that were excellent prospects two days ago, of which I now own domains have just been slaughtered.

    From 30k - 50k exact match competition to 1.3 million. I checked all stats in the kwyword tool as well as market samurai and traffic travis. Two days ago all was good, today MS and TT still say the same but GKT says very different.

    I also noticed all other sites in Gsearch have updated as well....
    UGH

    This is so strange, now one has dropped from 1.3 million to 700k.

    I'm noticing some weird things also. 2 of my sites just dropped like fly's for no reason that I can find. They really seemed to throw a kink in things.

    Heh, now that you mention it.. One of my "offline" advertising sites was safely on it's way to ranking top 3 then sunk like a rock yesterday. I'm kinda glad I didn't get any clients for that one yet.

    ...I figured it was just the good 'ol google dance since it didn't seem to effect some of the other listings.. I guess I'll wait and see.
