    I had a site ranking #1 yesterday and It dropped down to #45 for my main keyword. 3 of my other secondary keywords dropped down to the mid 40's and the rest dropped out of the top 100. Everything was fine yesterday and all I did was a simple AMR blast.

    Was this all with one site? I haven't seen any major shake-up since yesterday so if it is one site, it is probably normal bouncing around.

    Yes, this is just 1 site. I've been ranking #1 for a few months and all of a sudden this morning it fell. I have 100% unique content so I'm a little perplexed.

    It's Monday. Don't panic unless this lasts for longer than a few days

    I was hit on 14th but gained few position yesterday.

    Unique content is no longer work. It needs to be unique and absolutely useful!

    whatever google is doing right now, it's not like panda which significantly improved search quality.

    The crap that is rising to the top right now is really terrible (if anything is... which in most niches I watch nothing is moving)

    I wonder what could have possessed them to do that... they actually were doing a very solid job cleaning up results and keeping good info/good sale sites towards the top. And also forcing people to generate content regularly, adding new information into the web-universe, etc
    Now...

    Hasn't affected any of my clients sites...

    But they don't have any affiliate stuff either so maybe that's why...

    The drops are more a 1 out of 20 kinda thing... the ranking stagnation is across the board
    None of my sites have dropped, but all of them are stagnant if they're in competitive niches... no movement at all on ANY site is generally happening since about a week ago

    Why blasting your website with AMR if you are already 1#, i think AMR is a powerful but dangerous tool, you must use it wisely. If your website is making $$ in the first spot then try to invest in High PR private blogs or some powerful linkbuilding services to secure your spot.

    Hi
    It is probably your AMR blast...
    Did you blast your money site directly?
    If you have done this, this is probably the reason of the fall...
    The majority of AMR website are flaged as spam..
    Good luck now
