    Anyone hit by Google algo changes? Client site was ranking #1 for 40 phrases (local/UK), but dropped 15+ phrases to position 9 or worse in last 24 hours. Hoping it's a blip!

    Several posts popping up now about this. It's been going on for a few days.

    Were you using a PBN?

    I don't understand why people expect rock-solid #1 rankings for keywords they optimize for? Fair enough, you built the backlinks, optimized the site and got ranked, but it doesn't mean that you will never drop again, does it?

    There's your competition who are doing the same SEO, you backlinks could be dying out or the links pointing to your backlinks could be disappearing, thus making the sites pointing to you weaker, etc, etc.

    Lately, when anyone sees any drop in SERPs, they immediately think it's an algo change...

    seems like we are seeing more and more post about an update. Looks like the ones posting a loss in ranking have been using PBN set ups.

    Not sure if that was the target of this update but from what I am seeing this is what people are posting in different places.

    That....might be part of the problem. I'm seeing a pattern on several of these threads complaining of the latest update.

    Any gmail or google drive/docs involved at all?

    I haven't faced any problem for in the recent days. while buying PBN links You have to ensure that you are avoiding footprints from those backlinks.
