    Panda 3.2 was just released... I've seen insane (good and bad) movement on various sites of mine. Patience is a virtue. Try just waiting it out for a week. Then focus on building high PR backlinks.

    Yea, if your logged into your Google account than your rankings are based on what you view. So if you viewed your own site like 5 times then they will display your site as #1 or #2.
    Either log off and try again and/or disable recommended results in your profile.

    My site has been dancing like crazy lately. Traffic stays the same though, only slightly lower. -_-

    Similarly, I added some steady backlinks to a page and it rose steadily. Bored, I then blasted the hell out of it with some spammy sites and Google did a merry dance. It fell like a rock but a few weeks later it bounced back to the first page.

    It takes time and make sure your logged off Google when checking your rank.

    Yes I have had an influx of visits since the last panda too.
    Just focus on providing quality content with very few adds above the fold and an easy to follow site architecture and you will benefit in the long run.

    Can I take a wild guess and assume most people that saw a decrease in rankings were owners of adsense sites :D.

    I guess the new panda 3.2 update affects rankings based on per page layout. If you have ads and distracting widgets up top be sure to switch that around. Make sure your content is heavy above the fold.

    I think you summed it up quite well! Its like the fat people who eat McDonalds and ice cream every day. One day they stop eating big macs and ice cream. The very next day they wonder why they are still fat. Then complain and go back to eating french fries and ice cream


    Plus One million rep for you :) Dude honestly, you made my day with this one
