    Over the past two days, I've seen odd movements for several keywords on a site. I had one result, for example, that was in a featured snippet that got dropped by 7 places and replaced. Several other keywords dropped like 10 places. I suspected that it was an issue with my PBN, but all seem fine. Another curveball is that some of the newer content on the site that hasn't had anything done yet to it skyrocketed. Like page 9 to page 2 skyrocketed.

    It's as if the keywords I was ranking for dropped, but those that I wasn't ranking well for shot up.

    No messages in webmaster. PBN site still indexed. Several #1 keywords still remain #1.

    Anyone else seeing these types of fluctuations?

    Yeah we also experienced some drops in rankings. Don't know what Google is doing atm but atleast for us it's a pretty bad timing since we are trying out new things and can't say if it's due to website changes or Google reversing updates.

    Same, started a couple tests the other day.

    Since starting this post earlier, I've seen a noticeable increase in traffic, and noticed that at least a single featured snippet I had been dropped from has returned.

    Also, I'm getting referral traffic from the 'abc.xyz' which is a gxxgle thing. Never noticed that before.

    The big G is definitely testing some fundamental changes right now I think.
