    It's still really unpredictable though, it's pissing in the wind. And the return money you get for the costs in getting up the serps are not worth the hassle.

    Which service man? I only see you down here for Doge Links? Which is mass automated spammy links intended for use alongside Speed Rank or other high pr services, if you've used just it on a site its not going to last too long, had a look and I'm shocked even at the positions you where in before though as one of those kws is over 60k searches, all that from Doge Links is a nice surprise :) shoot me a pm bud we'll get you in for a free run on another site as that sucks a final push (Speed Rank or another bh high pr service) would have landed them at #1!

    My sites went up so far you have to scroll up past the doodle on page one to find them.

    Strangely I had 2 sites and I used similar strategies and links for both of them. They were ranking 1 and 2 respectively. ranked 1 site with more links and powerful links dropped to position 8 and the site with less links and less powerful links stayed the same. I will wait till sunday before I change up the links. Maybe google is testing its updates before rolling out a bigger update

    Kinda surprised, the sites that were newer with no links or just a few links (less than 60), are the ones that got hit the most. But I am thinking this isn't a big deal as my sites that are producing are doing fine and these newer sites might be fine when I build more links to to them. I am hoping this will be the worst of it.

    But last May M a t t read on the forums the update was mild, he turned up the volume in Oct. Maybe we ought to be over reporting the how bad it it really is?

    This is such a weird update. The results are all over the place.
    Competitors i never knew i even had with only 1 page are ranking higher.

    And on the flip side my sites that were once doing really bad are doing well.

    It's not a very good update lol.

    A few of my sites have been affected, a huge jump, not sure if it's from some new links that Google picked up, but #20 to #7 in the past few days, it's been on #20 and I haven't done much link building at all.
