    I just checked a bunch of my rankings today and I've had tons of sites massively drop. Anyone else seeing this?

    I know there was a Panda update on June 25th but I'm not sure why I had such massive drops on so many sites today. My local sites all got crushed. Hoping it's temporary.

    These events are a regular occurrence lately and every man and his dog knows the reasons why sites get penalized!

    To avoid penalties play the g game with a straight bat!

    That would make sense if I was spamming all these sites. My local sites only get a trickle of backlinks. Some of my other sites I haven't even backlinked in over a month.

    Just read the post and thought "oh oh" but ive just checked five of my sites and they are all slightly up with one after jumping a lot.. I just dont check too much anymore for my smaller sites because they are constantly jumping. My big sites havent moved in months though.

    Well I'm hoping they're just bouncing around but I've never had this many do it at once. Most of my local sites have bounced out of my tracker results for their keywords. That's when I started checking some other keywords and noticed the same issue for those sites.

    I'm just praying it's temporary or I'll have lost even more income since penguin/panda.

    I just PMed you back. It's SERPBook. I hope it's just a tracking issue.

    Edit:

    I just noticed this:

    We are aware of the recent ranking bug and we are working on it right now to resolve this issue!

    -SerpBook.com

    Hope that's the problem.

    This could be the problem

    I left them for this very reason.

    But then again maybe not, I see someone else having the same results as you:

    With competitive terms (very competitive terms) I see hourly ranking fluctuations across my sites and competition sites in serpfox. Literally every time it checks them they're at a different spot.

    I am seeing volatility in rankings.

    A few clients that I have been consulting with and trying to regain their rankings have seen increases today. They are nearing back to pre-Penguin rankings. It's been a long haul, but rewarding seeing them recovering.

    Although I am seeing some negative results as well for other keywords I track and monitor. I believe there was some type of update today, not sure if penguin or a small panda refresh.

    Are you sure it gives accurate results? I just tried it and it couldn't find my website in top 1000 searches while another SERP tracker shows my site at the 15th position and a Google search shows my site on the second page.
