    Holy sh1t. All my main sites (3) dropped 40-60 positions since yesterday. Anybody else noticed such big differences?

    A few months ago I opened some of my pages dropped in rankings, however this time 3 sites dropped, and ALL pages/keywords.

    Is this google dance? Should I send a reconsideration request or should I wait a few days?

    Haven't seen any movement in any of my sites during the past 48 hours. Are you doing the same kinds of linking programs to all 3 sites? Always possible there was another Panda update...it's about the right time.

    i think it's due to your link building techniques.

    haven't seen it in any of my sites. Maybe you should check to see your site doesn't have a recent manual review.

    Possible reason: The whole day I was looking for a solution. I think it got reviewed manually by google.

    I had the exact opposite. Google implemented their "Caffeine algorithm" on November 3rd. Focusing more on new and fresh content. I have a one week old site and just took 1st page 1st spot over with a squidoo lens out of 3+million results (actually my squidoo lens hit 3rd spot 3 hours after I made it). I have 2 social bookmarks and an anchor text comment on page 2 and my site is bottom page 2. Im loving it. Kicked out the 1st place site that has 18k backlinks.

    I've got four sites that I build links to in the same way.

    One is a very useful content site littered with affiliate links, mainly Amazon and ebay, plus a couple of clickbank products.

    One has just three pages, but it is a review site for just one product - is quite useful if you are thinking of buying said product.

    One was basically a one page thing with lots of Clickbank banners, and the last is an older site that doesn't really have much useful info, but also links to several CB products.

    In the last few weeks, site with lots of useful content has risen considerably.
    The review site also went up quite a bit.
    The one page one with CB banners was doing really well, and rising up fast for it's main KWs, but has dropped from the radar completely - not deindexed but not in the first 100 results for any KWs.

    The older site with so-so content has pretty much stayed the same.

    I also imagined I must have got a manual review, is there a way of telling?

    Does your site have useful content?

    My sites actually went up. I do not used spun content, all of it is unique.

    I run scrapebox against them periodically, but I always balance SB with bought links and high PR df links.
