    Anyone else noticed their keywords bouncing around today? I have several sites in various niches and all keywords seem to be moving either up or down in a new position each time i search for it. So one minute i am no.1 and then search again and i am no.3 then next time no.1 again!! Anyone else affected?

    Yes same thing happened to me. I have 6 sites that moved up and 3 moved down due to keywords. Others stayed the same but it seems as if they are playing around with algorithms again. I saw the keywords in my stats that I haven't seen in a while.

    +1 for that. My keywords are all over the place, changing ranks every 2-3 hours.

    This must be the Dinosaur update announced by matt cutts recently. I am experiencing a few keywords I had maintained for a while drop -5 and other keywords remain -2/+2 mostly. Nothing too dramatic.

    Though the phrase 'seo optimisation' is a little redundant that's still quite a feat!

    My broad positions gained rank, phrase was penalized a little bit. Saw some longstanding backlinks were removed from index, but a lot of keywords on the front page at 10th spot moved to 8th+ (probably replacing sites that had even more backlinks removed).

    I usually don't think there's an update when everyone asks if there is one, but this time there might have been.

    Think about how many people regularly type and say ATM Machine, and you have an equivalent market segment for SEO OptimiZation (with a Z, like God intended).

    Oh hey, fbrcold is in this thread. Hi again.

    No notable change - small sites or big, new or old... Maybe the dinosaur spared me this time.
