    My website ranked for 32 keywords in Top 5 pages in Google UK
    12 of them were at Google 1st Page Positions 2,4,5,7,10

    for past few months till yesterday..... Today except one keyword, all the other keyword were not in Top 5 Pages(may be not in Top 100) my SERP track show only the the Top 5 pages

    One Keywords which in Google 1st Page (position #4) dropped to 5th Page (#41)
    All are regional SEO keywords...

    Any Google updates ?
    anyother have this same exp ?

    Personally I am having no trouble at all with ranking but then again I know how to do SEO properly :D
    But there are a few people experiencing some problems like you in this thread

    There was a significant google update last night at about 10pm CDT.
    All of my sites increased significantly, but yes, there was an update. Looks like some kind of Penguin incarnation, but appears to be quite 301 friendly.

    www.mozcast.com is showing a high spike in the weather, so we could be looking at an update, especially considering how mild this month has been so far.

    Ups and downs all over, a data refresh as well as panda has been confirmed I suppose. Nothing serious though.
